While Microsoft Flight Simulator is gearing up for its 2024 version, players can look forward to an upcoming expansion with the popular Dune series.

So, if you are a fan of both universes, here’s everything you need to know about the Microsoft Flight Simulator Dune DLC, including a release date and trailer.
When Does Microsoft Flight Simulator Dune DLC Come Out?
The Microsoft Flight Simulator Dune Expansion will release on Nov. 3, 2023, along with the release of the film’s Part Two. Fans of the series will notice a familiar ship with the House Atreides Ornithopter, a transport aircraft from the iconic series. Not only will you steer this dynamic vessel, but you can also explore the vast terrain of the desert planet Arrakis.
