Forza Motorsport 6: Apex opens its beta next week

0

Windows 10 only

Turn 10 is bringing Forza over to PC soon, but if you missed the initial announcement, well, this isn't exactly a dream scenario we're talking about here. Importantly, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is a free-to-play title, one with a "curated single-player tour of Forza Motorsport's best content" and no livery design editor or online multiplayer. Just Drivatar versions of your friends.

If that sounds fine to you, or at least worth looking into, the open beta starts May 5, 2016.

"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," reads today's post. Future updates will range from covering wheel support to basic PC-centric features like "the ability to disable Vsync and an in-app framerate counter."

These are the current system requirements for the beta version:

Meanwhile, I'm still playing that fun daily game where I keep closing out prompts in Windows urging an upgrade to the new operating system already. Nah. I'm in no rush.
