Over the past few weeks there’s been plenty of excitement in the Forza camp as the days remaining until the release of Forza Horizon 3 tick away. The beginning of the month saw the original Forza Horizon make its way onto the Games With Gold platform, available to all players with an active XBL Gold subscription.
Maintaining that momentum, Turn 10 have revealed that the free-to-play Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, released on Windows 10 earlier this year, is not only now available as a full-fledged release product, but now supports a number of racing wheels.
This news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. While the game was launched without support for the peripherals, when pressed on the issue back in May, Turn 10 head Dan Greenawalt confirmed that wheel support would be coming to the game.
The 97.2 MB update now available to Windows 10 users introduces support for the following wheels, and will also be supported in Forza Horizon 3 at launch.
· Logitech G27 Racing Wheel
· Logitech G25 Racing Wheel
· Logitech G29 Racing Wheel
· 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
While support for Fanatec wheels is notably missing from today’s list, Brian Ekberg notes there is additional wheel support on the way that will be added to the game soon. Support for specific Fanatec wheels, including the ClubSport V2 Xbox One Hub and the Fanatec CSR models will be introduced to Apex beginning later this month.
Additionally, H-pattern shifters are fully supported in today’s update for all Logitech wheels listed above, bar the G29 which will be added at a later date. Support for additional H-pattern shifters, the likes of which include Thrustmaster’s TH8RS and TH8A will be added in a future update.
