After being absent from the flight simulator video-game market for over a decade, Microsoft has unveiled the latest iteration of its famed Flight Simulator series during the company’s press conference at the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).

Revealed in a video teaser onstage, the gameplay footage showed off the game’s impressive 4K graphics, along with its new city views feature that is reportedly powered by satellite data and AI from Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing service.

While details on an exact release date are sparse, the game itself is expected to be released on both the Xbox console and PC.
