Developer Turn 10 Studios is getting its show on the road with the launch of a Forza Motorsport 6: Apex beta for PC on Thursday, 5 May. It’s all the thrills, spills, and caffeine pills of super-charged, mega-octane street racing, in the comfort and safety of your own home. The future is now, people.

Apex combines the power and performance of DirectX 12 with Turn 10’s racing expertise, the proprietary ForzaTech™ engine, and Forza’s legacy of stellar content. Most importantly, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is our way to introduce Forza’s award-winning gameplay to a new audience on Windows 10 and invite a new group of gamers to develop a passion for cars and racing,” sez the press stuff.

“During the open beta for Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, players can expect to play a beautiful, high quality experience that will run on a variety of Windows 10-enabled machines. As a first-party Microsoft studio, Turn 10 is obsessed with performance in Forza games and, during the open beta for Apex, we will be working to improve the game’s performance across a diverse selection of hardware setups. As development continues, players can expect to see updates and improvements to Forza Motorsport 6: Apex including wheel support, the ability to disable Vsync and an in-app framerate counter.”

Apex is a free-to-play, “curated” revamp of Forza 6, tweaked for Windows 10. Game’s out this year, but no release date has been confirmed. For more info, zoom through to the official website.
