Forza 6 Apex Open Beta

This sounds more like it :mrgreen:
Open Beta Updates Delivered Throughout the Summer

During the open beta for Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, players can expect to play a beautiful, high quality experience that will run on a variety of Windows 10-enabled machines. As a first-party Microsoft studio, Turn 10 is obsessed with performance in Forza games and, during the open beta for Apex, we will be working to improve the game’s performance across a diverse selection of hardware setups (see below for our recommended PC specs).

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.

I guess they noticed the massive backlash to not supporting wheels. :mrgreen:

Open beta will arrive on Windows 10 machines on May 5. :D
Features such as wheel support and the ability to disable Vsync will come later in the beta. :(

Damn that game needs some high caliber hardware to run, having a GTX 970 as recommended for 1080p xD lol either a really next gen game or a very poorly optimized game if it needs that hardware. How the hell did they get it to run on the Xbone... :mrgreen:

Shame i'm enjoying an extended weekend at the countryhouse with the family as i would have loved to test those bold performance claims, but it's sunny out and relative warm, so i better soak up the sun while i can as it could start raining again.

But let us know how it plays ;)

Hardware:
Intel I7 4790K, Asus ROG Maximus VII Ranger, EVGA GTX 1070 FTW and 16 GB Fury ram

Game is not compatible with my Logitech pad (or if it is I can't get it top work) so until wheel support comes along I can't play. :(
