Microsoft Turns a Corner With Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, PC Release This Spring

It seems that recent indicators regarding a possible expansion of Turn 10’s ultimate seller Forza Motorsport to the PC platform are really becoming something to rely on. According to a cached version of an article at The Seattle Times (which was quickly deleted, though the details have now been made official), Turn 10 and Microsoft are working on an exclusive for Windows 10, titled Forza Motorsport 6: Apex. The game will appear this spring.

The most intriguing part of this news is the fact that the new title will be available as a free-to-play game, with overall content being ‘slimmed down’. Turn 10 have since confirmed this to be the case, describing the game as “designed for players who are new to the Forza franchise”, with as-shipped totals being 63 cars, 6 locations, and 20 track variations. The game will be capable of running at 4K resolution on Windows 10 platforms thanks to DirectX 12.

If this ball continues to roll towards the announced goal, this is going to be the first Forza Motorsport title exclusively released for a platform other than an XBox console. It is still too early to be convinced about anything regarding the new approach the title is going to adopt, so we have no other choice but to remain patient and wait for further details. Judging by the spring release date, that shouldn’t be too long!

EDITOR’S NOTE: It has since come to our attention that Apex will be launching without online multiplayer (outside of leaderboards). What’s more, at the moment, there is no wheel support either. Thank you to all that pointed this out in the comments section.

Take a gander at the 4K shots below, and share your thoughts and excitement in our Forza Motorsport 6 forum.
