forza motorsport 6 apex out now on windows 10 with wheel support forzaapexlaunch
Microsoft has released its free-to-play racer Forza Motorsport 6 Apex for Windows 10, and gearheads can experience the game’s unique brand of sim-styled racing via newly introduced steering wheel support.

This week’s official launch ends Forza Motorsport 6 Apex‘s lengthy beta phase, and players can expect to see a variety of new features and content debuting in the months ahead.

Forza Motorsport 6 Apex is a stripped-down Windows 10 port of Turn 10’s sim-styled Xbox One racer Forza Motorsport 6. The base game offers up 63 cars and 12 racing events across six included tracks, and additional vehicles and in-game challenges are available as micro-transactions.

Apex marks the first free-to-play release in Forza series history, following up on the 2015 launch of Forza Motorsport 6 for the Xbox One. Microsoft pitches Apex as “a curated Forza experience,” essentially serving as a “greatest hits” release that collects many of the franchise’s most popular vehicles, features, and racetracks.

Powered by DirectX 12, Forza Motorsport 6 Apex is a graphical showcase that boasts support for 4K resolutions. The game also offers Xbox Live text and voice chat, along with other features like unlockable achievements, and replay recording courtesy of built-in Game DVR.

This week’s launch marks the introduction of racing wheel support, one of Apex‘s most frequently requested features. In addition to mapping input to Xbox One controllers and mouse-and-keyboard configurations, Forza Motorsport 6 Apex supports Logitech’s G25, G27, and G29 Racing Wheels, along with the Logitech MOMO Force Feedback Racing Wheel, and G920 Xbox One Wheel.

Apex also supports a wide range of Thrustmaster-branded racing wheels, including the T150, the T500 RS Gaming Wheel, the RGT Force Feedback Racing Wheel, and the TX and TMX Xbox One Wheels.

Forza Motorsport 6 Apex is available as a free download for Windows 10 devices via the Windows Store.
