Good news for racing games fans out there: Microsoft has announced today that the free Windows Store game Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is now out of beta. The game first appeared on the Windows Store back in May and features 63 cars and 20 different tracks but no multiplayer mode. Additionally, the now full-fledged title is also adding wheel support following "months of hard work from the Turn 10 and Windows teams." Here is the list of currently supported wheels on the Windows 10 game:
- Logitech G27 Racing Wheel
- Logitech G25 Racing Wheel
- Logitech G29 Racing Wheel (doesn't support H-pattern shifters for now)
- Logitech MOMO Force Feedback Racing Wheel
- Thrustmaster T300RS
- Thrustmaster T500 RS Gaming Wheel
- Logitech G920 Xbox One Wheel
- Thrustmaster T150
- Thrustmaster TX Xbox One Wheel
- Thrustmaster TMX Xbox One Wheel
- Thrustmaster RGT Force Feedback Racing Wheel
In a post on Xbox Wire, Turn 10 Studios also explained that support for some Fanatec wheels will also be enabled in an upcoming update in late September update. Moreover, the game studio shared that H-pattern shifters support for the Logitech G29 will be added at a later date as well as additional support for H-pattern shifters from other manufacturers.
As a reminder, your Windows 10 PC will need to have the following minimum specs to be able to install the game from the Windows Store:
- 64 bit Windows 10 - version 151
- Processor: Intel Core i3-4170 @ 3.7Ghz
