Sure, Microsoft Flight Simulator did a great job of simulating life in the cockpit of a myriad of real-world planes at 30,000 feet up. But what about the other half of that equation? AirportSim, an Xbox Series X|S console exclusive due out next year (it’s also coming to PC at the same time), aims to show you what life is like for the ground crew who are so essential to any and all air travel.
The new trailer for AirportSim, which you can watch at the top of this page (with screenshots to click through below), shows off the three main game modes: Free Roam, Scenario, and Challenge. Each showcases life as a vital ground crew member at one of many real-life airports. You’ll drive the baggage cart, refuel the plane in freezing temperatures, and much more.
AirportSim features dynamic real-time and real-world weather, real aircraft like the Boeing 737 MAX and Airbus A320 NEO, online and local co-op, and more.
