First announced in March and released as a beta in May, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex has exited the beta stage and in addition is finally getting racing wheel support. Posting on the Forza Motorsport website, Brian Ekberg (community manager at Microsoft) broke the news.
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.
Currently supported wheels include:
- 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
If you own one of the above Logitech wheels, you’ll also be glad to hear that H-shifters are fully supported as well (except for the G29, support is coming later). Support for the Fanatec ClubSport V2 Xbox One and CSR models will be coming later this month. I know I’ll be hooking the Logitech G920 up tonight!
