Nearly ten years after its initial launch, Microsoft Flight Simulator X will finally be making its way to Steam. The port is developed by Dovetail Games.

The new release will come with 20 aircraft, from single-engine and private jets to commercial jets. Over 80 missions and 24,000 airports are included. Multiplayer will also be available and updated to no longer require GameSpy.

The new release comes out December 18 and supports Windows 8.1. No price has been given, but Dovetail says it will be "spectacular introductory price."

Thanks, Videogamer.
