Forza Motorsport 6 Apex – Open Beta Available

Microsoft has made the Forza Motorsport 6: Apex open beta available on the Windows 10 Store.

The Forza Motorsport 6: Apex title for Windows 10 is the first step in the future of the Forza franchise as it expands into the world of PC’s. And let’s not forget the game comes free of charge for all Windows 10 users. Keep in mind that you will need some decent hardware to get the best out of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex

The download itself weighs in at 18.8 gigabytes but ones installed, the game will occupy a whopping 30Gb.  Although being a big download, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is a cut-down version of the mighty console racer. While missing allot of features and content of the original game, the PC version still manages to bring you everything that made Forza 6 a great game.



Using Turn 10’s proprietary ForzaTech engine utilizing DirectX 12, players have the chance to race a diverse line-up of 63 beautifully detailed Forzavista cars featuring working headlights, opening doors, intricately modeled cockpit and exteriors, and a full damage model. The release version of Forza Motorsport 6 Apex will contain 20 track configurations across six locations, including night and wet-weather variants.

  • Brands Hatch
  • Spa-Franchorchamps
  • Sebring
  • Rio de Janeiro
  • Top Gear test track
  • Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi

Keep in mind that the beta and first release version of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will have no wheel support. That said, Turn10 Studios already confirmed that adding wheel support will be a focus point of the development team during the beta period.

For the moment, users are reporting that you might run into some issues, but this is nothing more than understandable, regarding the fact that its a beta. As development continues, players can expect to see updates and improvements to the game.
