Earlier this year, Forza Motorsport 6 Apex was released for the PC, basically bringing a “Lite” version of the Forza Motorsport series for the Xbox. However, it had a few compromises, including no wheel support. However, that has now changed! The latest release of Forza 6 Apex brings the title out of Beta, and adds support for quite a few wheels.
One significant factor in this new release is that Forza 6 Apex supports some of the popular wheels that are NOT supported for the Xbox One! Fan favorites, such as the Thrustmaster T500RS, T300RS/TX, and even the Logitech G27 are supported in the sim. One noticeable absence from the list is Fanatec. Microsoft has stated that Fanatec support will be coming later this month. In addition, support for stand-alone H-Shifters will also be rolled out as time goes. For now, here is the full list of wheels that are supported in Forza 6 Apex:
- 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
It is worth noting that any wheels that are compatible with Forza 6 Apex will ALSO be compatible with Forza Horizon 3, when it is released for PC. If you purchase Forza Horizon 3 for the Xbox One, you will also automatically get a PC version to use.
I will say I am liking what Turn 10 Studios is doing, to actually bring more support to the PC side. It does show that they are making an active effort on the PC side, as opposed to this just being a “Tech Demo”. I’m also looking forward to seeing how Forza Horizon 3 performs on PC when it is released on the 27th of this month.
