Microsoft’s new path of unifying the Xbox and Windows 10 ecosystems by bringing Windows applications to Xbox consoles and Xbox games to Windows 10 devices has been an incredible journey so far. Forza Motorsport 6: Apex was announced as more of an experiment for Turn 10 Studios – the developer of the Forza franchise.
While it is a free game, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex has a lot to offer – on the PC, it runs at 60 FPS and supported resolutions up to 4K, something that has been the standard for PC games for a while now, but console ports lack due to sloppy work. There was one extremely critical feature that it was missing – wheel support.
While your usual controller can provide pretty good immersion in racing games, a gaming wheel built specifically for racing games can make a big difference. Both the Xbox One and PC’s support gaming wheels, and with the full release of Apex, Turn 10 Studios is bringing full wheel support to the game, and also adding it to the upcoming Forza Horizons 3 release.
Turn 10 Studios is not yet done adding support for all of the hundreds of devices, so here is the list of devices it supports for now:
- 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
Adding support for these devices is great – however, there is more work to be done. The H-pattern shifters for all of the wheels mentioned above are supported, except for the Logitech G29 – support for this would be added at some point in the future. Support for more devices such as the Fanatec gaming wheels would be arriving in late September this year as well.
