Microsoft Simulator Just Added The Pelican
The Pelican is coming to the game as a free expansion, available starting today on the Sims Marketplace to owners of Microsoft Flight Simulator and Xbox Game Pass members. That is, players will be able to download incredibly detailed renderings of the Halo Infinite-based Pelican, available for free in the in-sim marketplace today. Just as they did when Super Hornet was added, fans of Microsoft Flight Simulator can now first explore the planet with Halo Infinites Unsc "Pelican" for free starting today. The free add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator will bring Halo Infinites signature Pelican jet to Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Halo Infinites Unsc Pelican is now available to Microsoft Flight Simulator fans for exploring the world at their own pace, with more content promised in time for its 40th Anniversary coming in November. The new 40th Anniversary Edition will return the beloved aircraft of the franchise, introduce helicopters and gliders, and add a real-life A310 aircraft. Microsofts longest-running gaming franchise, Microsoft Flight Simulator, announced today it is looking forward to celebrating its 40th Anniversary with its community in November 2022. In addition to releasing the world update X, the Beechcraft Model 18, and Halo Infinite Pelican expansions (now available free on the in-sim Marketplace), Microsoft shared plans to mark the 40th Anniversary in November.
At the Xboxs Summer Game Fest showcase today, the Xbox announced the games 40th anniversary would feature an expansion bringing new types of planes into the game. Xbox is adding new planes and locations in fall thanks to its 40th Anniversary Partnership with Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum. Xbox has also revealed the update will feature helicopters, gliders, and an actual airliner, a response from the games community. The new plane types include the highly anticipated additions of helicopters and gliders, brought to life by the new fluid dynamics simulation.
Along with the reintroduction some classic airfields, Microsoft is adding additional planes, including some familiar faces (well, they would have faces had it been Jimbo and Jet-Set. Some familiar faces (well, it is them). Since its announcement, IniBuilds has re-modeled a large number of areas on the Airbus A310, as well as fully re-textured the plane, taking full advantage of the capabilities of Microsoft Flight Simulator in order to deliver an awesome visual effect along with an emphasis on the details on the A310. In the coming months, iniBuilds will showcase additional pictures, videos, and tutorials, so whether you have never flown a jet or are an experienced pilot in a different plane, both of you will be able to enjoy this plane when it is released. In addition to our system for the A310, we will be providing a new, highly functional electronic flight bag (EFB).
The FMS (Flight Management System), an integral part in aircraft navigation, has been entirely rewritten from scratch, which allows more realistic operations during daily flights, as well as new features that are never seen before in Inibuilds products. Simulated means players are not just immersed within the cockpit of a realistic plane, they are also finding themselves flying around landmarks and locations of the real world. The simulations are not perfect, though, so Microsoft has gone back and filled in some locations over time. Shortly after Halo Infinite was released, mods made Pelicans flightable, but the base games large craft served merely as set dressing for Halo Infinites first-person shooter arenas.
Now, Flight Simulator series has been given a glimpse into the distant future by releasing Halo Infinites Pelican plane as an actual aircraft that can actually be flown in Flight Sim. To mark the 40th anniversary, Microsoft is adding Halo-Halos first-ever fictional flying machine -- a Halo-based pelican troop carrier -- to Microsofts Flight Simulator series today, as well as many past favorites from the Microsoft Flight Simulator series, as part of the November Free Update. With more players enjoying the incredible detail in aircraft and realistic depictions of our planet than ever before, the series is paving new ground, with versions available today on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and mobile devices through Xbox Cloud Gaming. Check out our live coverage from the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase to get up to speed with all the biggest announcements of today, too.

You can grab the extra update for free on the Sims Marketplace, regardless of whether you have the full game or downloaded it via Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, he made a bonus, downloadable immediate update available, which gives you control over a Pelican ship from Halo Infinite. It might not quite be a match for the realistic sim, but the iconic United Nations Strategic Command-77 Dropship-Carrier Pelican is now available. The Halo-themed ship was shown in the trailer at Xboxs reveal event, along with Bethesda games, which may have led some fans to believe that there was Halo news coming.
Halo-franchise vehicles had crossed over into the Forza Horizon driving game series on Xbox before, with the Warthog being the driving car featured in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Xbox driving game series. The Flight 2.0 Series (SG, LG, and XLG) is the realization of the same objective, as well as the reinvention of the original Flight series by Pelican Reels, which launched in 2018.
