From day May 5th, fans of the Forza racing franchise will be able, for the first time, to accelerate cars on Windows 10 PCs through the game Forza Motorsport 6: Apex.
Microsoft will release the game for download and will open a period of public beta, where any gamer will be able to test and contribute feedback regarding performance and gameplay. This information will be used by the game development game on Turn 10 Studios to improve the game until the official launch.
Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is not going to be a complete game like the Xbox One version, but it will be free even after the end of the beta period.
Microsoft’s goal is to demonstrate and promote the capabilities of Windows 10 focused on the segment gamer, such as advanced DirectX 12 graphics, super detailed 4K resolution and integration with Xbox Live achievements (1000 points). The list of requirements can be viewed below:
