Microsoft and developer Turn 10 have announced the upcoming PC debut of the Forza series, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, will be available to play via an open beta next month. The open beta will begin on May 5 and “will run on a variety of Windows 10-enabled machines” at resolutions up to 4K. Turn 10’s Brian Ekberg explained updates and improvements will be grafted into the beta as development continues, citing wheel support, the ability to disable Vsync, and an in-app frame rate counter are some of the features the studio is currently working on. Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will utilise the cloud-based ‘Drivatar’ AIl profiles of your own Xbox Live Friends and others from the Xbox One community. The game will not feature online multiplayer or the livery editor at this stage, but in an early beta update Ekberg clarified Turn 10 will be “adding a selection of curated livery designs from the Forza painting community.”
Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, the first Forza game for PC, was announced in March. Developed by Turn 10, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will be free-to-play and exclusive to Windows 10. Apex will not be a direct port of Forza Motorsport 6 and, at launch, will feature 12 themed racing events, more than 60 cars, and a new objective system, which challenges players to complete specific, skill-based tasks for additional in-game currency. Turn 10 creative director Dan Greenawalt has confirmed that, moving forward, all its games will ship on both Windows 10 and Xbox.
