New Forza Motorsport 6: Apex Video Goes Behind the Scenes

Turn 10 Studios have released a new video on the upcoming Forza Motorsport 6: Apex coming to Windows 10 this spring.

As revealed during the official announcement earlier this month, Apex will be available as a free-to-play title and “designed for players who are new to the Forza franchise”. The title will support 4K resolution and will ship with 63 cars, 6 locations, and 20 track variations.

This behind the scenes look at the game refers to Apex as the first step in the Forza Motorsport franchise moving to Windows 10, describing it as a “focused experience” that will bring everything the acclaimed franchise is known for to those on the PC. When the title debuts on Windows 10 later this spring, it will take advantage of DirectX 12 and the Universal Windows Platform.

UWP will ease things during development requiring them to write code only once, allowing them to optimize the experience across the two platforms so that it’s representative of what the Xbox One and PC are capable of. This lends to the ‘universal’ aspect of the platform.

Interestingly enough, Turn 10 have also now confirmed that every game will be available on both the Xbox One and Windows 10 moving forward.

    Not sure how I feel about this. :/ “Universal Windows Platform” seems to be a bye-word for “purposely hamstrung on PC so it can run well on Xbox.” The whole free-to-play model is BS as well. Gotta love those frelling wait timers in your racing video games!

      Where are the wait timers?

      From the leaked video last week, there’s a pretty simple win-medal-unlock-car mechanic, and yep, players can choose to bypass that with cash. Which doesn’t seem massively different to the current in-game economy in either FM6 or GT6.

      Now, if they start putting content behind paywalls on the full versions of games (FH3 and FM7), then yeah, I’d see where the complaints could come from.

    Those car/track lists are pretty lacklustre. Seems the door is now open for some shady micro transaction business.

      Once you get to the later levels and progression grinds to a halt behind a paywall, then you’ll be paying large sums of your cash to move on. I’ve already seen that the game has a token system, which can only mean paywall after paywall to get back in the game.

      Xbox one version has tokens as well. Profession is anything but slow, I don’t see why what’s basically a PC demo of FM6 would be different.
