Microsoft have announced that a Forza Motorsport title will be racing its way over to the PC.
Going by the moniker “Forza Motorsport 6: Apex” the title is said to be a bite-sized version of the Xbox One's Forza Motorsport 6 and is free to play. Apex will arrive through the Windows Store some time in Spring this year.
Being free to play of course means that micro transactions will feature in Apex, however Turn 10 have said that Apex is not a microtransaction driven game but instead allows those that wish to proceed through the game as quickly as possible to do so with the aid of in-game purchases. Check out the official announcement trailer below.
So far Microsoft have confirmed Apex will feature 63 cars with hot hatches, muscle, touring, exotics, GT racers, track day cars, prototypes and hypercars all covered. Apex will also come with 20 track configurations spread across six locales. Both wet-weather and night racing has also been confirmed.
Apex will take advantage of DirectX 12 technology and can run up to 4K resolution should you have powerful enough hardware. In short, Forza Motorsport will never look as good come this Spring. Apex will also take advantage of Windows 10 features such as accessing friends and achievements lists, text and voice chat via Xbox Live and you can record and share your video clips with built-in Game DVR.
According to Turn 10 Studios Design Director Andy Beaudoin, future Forza titles (with Horizon titles all but confirmed too) will “absolutely” be developed simultaneously with Forza Motorsport 6 Apex providing the very first step towards that future.
