By now, a lot of readers willrelating to Forza Motorsport 6: Apex. The open beta is going to be available to anyone with a Windows 10 PC on May 5th.
Forza Motorsport 6: Apex has PC fans concerned as it is not a true Forza experience. Despite this game being the first of the Forza series to make its way to PC, it seems Microsoft aren’t willing to put a true version of their few Xbox One exclusive titles on Windows just yet. This PC Forza game is free-to-play, with the unlocks for cars and tracks being locked behind paywalls.
For starters, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex doesn’t support wheel support right now, and yes, this is only a beta, but that’s a glaring omission even for a beta. Modders might be thinking about editing the game’s files to add wheel support in, but that’s not an option due to the game running on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).
Unfortunately, Forza uses the dreaded UWP. It has been the subject of hate for unsuspecting buyers of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Check outon why UWP still needs some work. Some of the reasons include: No SLI or Crossfire, no mod support and VSync can’t be turned off.
On a more positive note, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex does support DirectX 12 and 4K, so those with a great computer will get to see what the ForzaTech engine is really capable of. We’ve included a picture that shows the system requirements. The recommended requirements include an i7 and 12GB of RAM, if you own a slower PC I’d wait to hear impressions from others before installing it. To play the game at 4K 60FPS, you are going to need the best computer hardware out there: i7 6700k, Nvidia GTX 980ti or Radeon Fury X, an SSD and 30GB in hard drive space and 16GB of RAM. We’ve never seen an SSD in the system requirements before, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex could be one of the most demanding games on Windows right now.
