Forza Motorsport 6: Apex for PC / Windows is another installment of the popular racing series by Turn 10 Studios. This time around, it is a free-to-play production and the first title in the franchise to be released for the PC. The game originally debuted on Xbox One in September 2015.
The gameplay of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex for PC / Windows is not any different than that from the original console edition. The game is a simulator, although the developers did include a considerable amount of options that make driving easier. Compared to the original version, the PC / Windows one is significantly poorer. First and foremost, there are many less vehicles to choose from — instead of 450 cars (that we received at the launch of Forza Motorsport 6), we got only 63 machines, including Audi #2 Audi Team Joest R18 from 2014, Ford GT from 2017, and Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SD-455 from 1973. As far as racing tracks are concerned, the game offers 20 of those in 6 locations, namely Brands Hatch, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Rio de Janeiro, Sebring International Raceway, Top Gear, and Yas Marina. All of the above complemented by the Drivatar and Forzavista systems.
The basic game mode of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is the Showcase Tour career that allows us to take part in 12 events. Occasionally, players may also encounter special videos narrated by such celebrities as James May and Richard Hammond, the former presenters of the cult Top Gear television series. Apart from that, the developers prepared additional, regularly added events and challenges as well as the possibility to compete against the avatars of other players.
Forza Motorsport 6: Apex for PC / Windows is powered by ForzaTech engine that provides high-quality graphics. The production utilizes the DirectX 12 technology and supports screen resolutions up to 4K.
