Microsoft promises its free Forza Apex racing game for Windows 10 won't suck

Mark Hachman | March 2, 2016
No mandatory microtransactions, no ads. But you'll definitely need Windows 10.

According to Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox and gaming business for Microsoft, Microsoft isn’t as concerned with outselling the Sony PlayStation 4. Instead, the company wants to present the Xbox as a platform gamers play and play again—the Monthly Active User metric that apps are obsessed with. That should be good news for Apex owners, as Turn 10 is committed to updating the game and adding new content, Beaudoin said.

Turn 10 hasn’t released any minimum specs for the game. Given the graphical complexity of the Xbox One version, you probably shouldn’t expect an older PC with integrated graphics will be able to run Apex. Still, Microsoft wants you on Windows 10, and it wants you to buy Windows games. If it throws a few freebies your way to do so, then that’s good, right?
