Massive news this morning for racing fans, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will open its doors to the public next week on May 5th. This version is specially built for PC gamers and will leverage Window 10’s DirectX 12.
If Forza fans thought they knew what high-resolution and high detail was before, then its time to rethink. Forza 6: Apex will offer 4K resolution that will offer you a seat in 63 cars and 20 track configurations across 6 locations, in stunning quality.
If you haven’t seen the trailer for the game, here it is below and claims to be all in-game footage and yeah, it does look amazing. This may be the game that makes you buy a new or upgrade your existing gaming rig.
The developers at Turn 10 have committed to deliver updates over the coming months as feedback from gamers is collected and iterated on.
Creating stunning amazing visuals at 4K is great, but then you have the challenge of making it perform on a wide-variety of hardware inside the cases of gamers.
As development continues, players can expect to see updates and improvements to the game.
For example, wheel support is coming to Forza Motorsport 6: Apex and Turn 10 is busy working to ensure that Apex delivers the kind of wheel support, performance, and features that racing fans expect from a range of available hardware. In addition we plan to support additional features that we know are important to PC gamers, such as the ability to disable Vsync and an in-app framerate counter.
