Forza 6 Apex Launches Leaves Beta With Wheel Support

Vroom vroom!

Now Microsoft have unveiled plans to bring their headline Xbox One games to Windows 10 too, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex [official site] seems a little odd. It's not full and proper Forza, see, rather a singleplayer-only free version of Turn 10's drive 'em up. Well! We may now know that Forza Horizon 3 is coming to Win 10, multiplayer and all, but let's not forget Forza 6 Apex. After four months in open beta testing, the free racer has left beta to properly launch, having added support for steering wheel peripherals.

Check the launch announcement to see the eleven wheels and selection of shifters which are now supported thanks to the launch update. Turn 10 note that they plan to add support for more wheels too, including Fanatec turnyturners. If you have problems with your binlid, do check the known issues.

Those wheels will work in Forza Horizon 3 too, Turn 10 say. Horizon isn't a civil track-based Forza, mind, going more for off-road antics across Australia. It's due on September 27th as one of those fancy 'Xbox Play Anywhere' games that gives folks both Windows 10 and Xbone copies if they buy it digitally.

You can download Forza Motorsport 6: Apex free through the Windows Store. You'll need Windows 10 and a system capable of DirectX 12.
