PC gamers rejoice. The wait is almost over as developer Turn 10 will kick off the open beta for Forza Motorsport 6: Apex on May 5.
It’s the first Forza game ever developed for PC and it will run on a “variety of Windows 10-enabled machines) at up to 4K resolutions at 60 fps, so the graphics should be crisp and smooth. The title was originally announced in March and it’s going to be available as a free-to-play game “crafted specifically for Windows 10.” In other words, fans of the series will be happy to hear the new title will be more than just a direct port of the Xbox One-exclusive Forza 6 launched last year.
At first, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will have more than 60 cars that you’ll be able to take to the virtual track in one of the 12 themed racing events. In addition, the PC version will feature a newly developed objective system that will challenge gamers to accomplish certain skill-based tasks to earn in-game currency.
There are going to be a total of 20 track configurations of six different circuits and each location is going to feature night and wet versions to add more variety. While the numbers of cars and tracks is substantially lower than what you get with the version for Xbox One, keep in mind the PC title is going to be free-to-play.
The open beta for players will be yours to enjoy all summer long, with the full release of the game programmed at a later date.
