Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is coming to Windows 10 available for free in the Windows Store in late Spring 2016. On their blog, Forza announced that the Apex open beta will begin on May 5, 2016. Apex will be the Forza game available for Windows 10 presenting the power of DirectX 12 at resolutions of up to 4K.
“A new era for the Forza Motorsport series begins on May 5 with the release of the open beta for Forza Motorsport 6: Apex. Crafted specifically for Windows 10, Apex represents the critical first step in the future of the Forza franchise as it expands into Windows 10 PCs. Apex combines the power and performance of DirectX 12 with Turn 10’s racing expertise, our proprietary ForzaTech™ engine, and Forza’s legacy of stellar content. Most importantly, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is our way to introduce Forza’s award-winning gameplay to a new audience on Windows 10 and invite a new group of gamers to develop a passion for cars and racing.”
Forza Motorsport 6 Apex features 63 “Forzavista” cars that can race on 20 different tracks set in 6 locations throughout the world. Racing night and day in all weather conditions, Apex showcases a more refined and a better player experience than what is seen in Forza Motorsport 6. Apex will have two player modes; “Showcase Tour,” featuring a 12-event career mode, and “Spotlight Series,” which will challenge players to perform in track-specific events.
Turn10 Studios will update Apex all summer long and meticulously work to improve Apex’s performance on Windows 10, provided you have the PC power to run Apex. Here’s a look at the system requirements needed to play Forza Motorsport 6 on Windows 10:
Forza will continue to update Apex as it has with Forza Motorsport 6 to get the most realistic driving experience possible. At this time, Apex will not feature online multiplayer or the livery design editor featured in Forza Motorsport 6. However, Forza will be adding a custom selection of other livery designs created by the Forza Motorsport community.
