Forza 6 Apex revs out of beta, with wheel support in tow

1 min read


You can play Forza 6 – one of this generation’s best racing games to date – on your PC. Branded as Forza 6: Apex, the beta Windows 10 version of the game features 63 cars and 12 racing events and is free to play. It’s no longer in beta – but it is still free. And more, it now has support for racing wheels.

Says Turn 10’s Brian Ekberg:

“We’ve reached an important milestone in the development of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex – as of today, we’re lifting the “beta” tag and releasing Apex as a full-fledged (and still free!) product on the Windows 10 Store. As we exit the beta period of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex development, it’s also time to update players about an issue that many of you have been talking about since the announcement of the game: wheel support.

We’re extremely excited to announce that today’s content update for Apex will bring wheel support to the Forza Motorsport series on Windows 10 for the first time. This is a major landmark for the Forza series on Windows 10 and has been the result of months of hard work from the Turn 10 and Windows teams.”

Not just any wheel will work though, so here’s a list of the currently supported ones:

  • Logitech G27 Racing Wheel
  • Logitech G25 Racing Wheel
  • Logitech G29 Racing Wheel
  • Logitech MOMO Force Feedback Racing Wheel
  • Thrustmaster T300RS
  • Thrustmaster T500 RS Gaming Wheel
  • Logitech G920 Xbox One Wheel
  • Thrustmaster T150
  • Thrustmaster TX Xbox One Wheel
  • Thrustmaster TMX Xbox One Wheel
  • Thrustmaster RGT Force Feedback Racing Wheel

Funnily enough, I happen to own one of those wheels, purchased back when the first Need For Speed: Underground games tickled my fancy. None of the racing peripherals I owned from the Xbox 360 days work with the Xbox One, so this is probably my best bet at playing Forza 6 with a wheel.

If you own a wheel that’s not on the list, support could be coming soon. Ekberg promises that support for more wheels – like Fanatec ones – will be coming later this month.

        Hehehe, ok, let me rephrase that…

        Good News Everyone! It seems Turn 10 has been hard at work implementing wheel support for Forza 6:Apex, which means that you need to deliver a wheel to Galaxor at his private mansion on the hilltop of his planet Keplar – F186, of course none of you will make it back and he’s already paid in full, which means your replacement team is waiting outside, so hurry along now, we wouldn’t want Zoidberg to start spreading his hormones again….

    Apex is still a disjointed experience. It’s like racing by yourself ticking off objectives.
