Forza 6 PC release date and system requirements revealed

The first ever PC installment in the venerable racing game series is out soon in beta. But it won't have Vsync, wheel support or an in-game frame rate counter at launch.

Forza 6 Apex Edition, the first Forza game ever for PC, will arrive on Windows 10 machines on May 5, Microsoft announced today. That's the day when the racing game's open beta begins, not the full release.

In a post on Xbox Wire, Microsoft said the Apex Edition's beta release, though an unfinished version of the game, will offer a "beautiful, high-quality experience" that can run on a "variety" of PCs.

Throughout the beta, developer Turn 10 will make an effort to improve Apex Edition's performance "across a diverse selection of hardware setups." The game's system requirements can be seen in the chart below.

Features such as wheel support and the ability to disable Vsync will come later in the beta. Additionally, the developer will add an in-game frame-rate counter sometime after the initial beta release.

In addition to the Apex Edition, another Forza game has been announced and will be properly unveiled at E3 2016. This game's "cover car" is the Lamborghini Centenario, which isn't available in the real world yet.

Additionally, Microsoft has confirmed that all future Forza games will be released on Xbox and PC.
