Turn 10 games, the developers behind Forza, has announced that all of their future games will release on Windows 10 and Xbox One. The developers have also discussed the advantages that are provided by the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), saying that it allows them to build the game once and have it work well on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox. 

 

Moving forward, all of our games are going to be shipping on Windows 10 (PC) and Xbox

 

Right now the universal Windows platform has been a very controversial program from Microsoft, severely limiting the ability of PC gamers to customize their gaming experience with overlays and FPS tracking, going so far as to prevent PC gamers from having any true VSYNC options or make use of either G-Sync or FreeSync technologies properly. 

Microsoft do plan on making changes to the Univeral Windows Platform to allow PC gamers to have more freedom, but at the time of writing the program offers severe restrictions. 

Below is a video where the developers of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex discuss what it is like to develop on the Universal Windows Platform.  

 

 

Recently the Graphical options menu for the PC version of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex was revealed, showcasing a large number of graphical options which even include full MSAA options.

This graphical options menu is much more advanced that what we have seen recently in Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, suggesting that we can expect a much better PC version of the game.  

 

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex Graphics Options Revealed

 

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will give PC gamers a taste of the Forza Motorsport world, giving players 63 cars with working damage and cockpits and a total of 6 tracks with 20 different layouts at launch. There will also be a limited version of Forza's Career mode, which includes a 12-event "Showcase Tour".  

Below is a trailer for the game that is rendered at a resolution of 4K, but sadly the game will not support online play, but it will have online leaderboards and rankings. 

 

 

One major blow to you racing fans out there will be that the game will not support steering wheels at launch, meaning that PC gamers will have to use controllers or keyboards to play and leaving those who use more accurate setups in the dark. 

Below are the confirmed cars and tracks that will be available in the game. 

 

Confirmed Cars

  • 2014 Audi #2 Audi Team Joest R18 e-tron Quattro
  • 2017 Ford GT
