Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is a stripped down and focused single player version of Forza Motorsport 6, designed from the ground up to be optimized for Windows 10 – running on DirectX 12 at resolutions of up to 4K at 60fps.
Serving as a showcase to emphasise Microsoft’s new shift of focus to the Windows 10 Store and PC gaming, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex features 63 highly detailed cars, 20 track configurations across 6 locations, night and wet weather driving, a brand new career mode and Xbox Live achievements. It may not be as fully featured as a full Forza release, but thanks to the power afforded by the PC (if yours is powerful enough), it’ll feature high fidelity visuals likely to blow it’s Xbox One counterparts out of the water.
The Open Beta starts on May 5th and will be available to download from the Windows 10 Store. Maybe it’ll even give those who are hanging onto Windows 7 a push to upgrade to Windows 10 – go on, it’s not that bad!
