Thanks to some leaks, we?ve just gotten our first glimpse of Forza Motorsport 6 on the PC. Earlier this month, Microsoft announced that it would be bringing its flagship racing simulator to Windows with Forza Motorsport 6 Apex, a ?curated,? free-to-play version of the game that released on The Xbox One last September.
Get a First Look At Forza Motorsport 6 on PC
Based on the video uploaded on Vimeo by a user known as ?NullAffiliation,? Forza?s gameplay remains intact on PC. The short three-minute clip showcases a rainy, wet lap around the Top Gear test course made famous in the BBC car show of the same name. The player uses a 2015 Jaguar XKR-S GT.
Prior to the Forza Motorsport 6 Apex gameplay, we can see the player navigating through the game menus. At around the 40-second mark, we get a pretty good look at the graphical settings that can be adjusted on the PC version. The settings look pretty comprehensive, with options for things like ?windshield reflection quality? and ?lens flare quality? and separate ones for car and track texture quality. This being in PC, Microsoft has confirmed that support for Direct X12 and 4K resolution will be available.
As for track selection, the video shows that there are six tracks available in the menu. Each of these tracks comes with a wide variety of alternate layouts and configurations, which bump up the total count considerably. In the car select screen, we can see that new vehicles are unlocked with either Forza Medals or real money.
Whether other features like Forza?s signature livery editor and car customization make their way into Forza Motorsport 6 Apex remains to be seen. Regardless, it?s a pretty promising first look, and the game is certainly impressive for a free-to-play offering.
Microsoft has said that the game will release some time in the Spring. For more updates on Forza Motorsport 6 Apex, keep it right here on the BitBag.
