Microsoft aims to show the gaming community what the PC’s new DirectX 12 API system can do when it releases Forza Motorsport 6 Apex on Windows PC sometime this spring.

Forza Motorsport 6 Apex is the PC version of Forza Motorsport 6, which released on the Xbox in September of last year.

Apex will be a free-to-play version of the racing game, and will be missing some of the features that will come with the game. Apex will include 12 themed racing events and 60 cars, and will urge players to complete numerous challenges in order to build up in-game currency, which Microsoft has promised is fully achievable without having to resort to microtransactions. Players who don’t want to see the option can even disable it.

The game will also feature car featurettes and automobile match-ups through videos that give you all the money shots that you could want of each of the game’s cars, narrated by automobile celebrities such as James May and Richard Hammond, former presenters on the British Broadcasting Company car show “Top Gear”.

Top Gear’s silent mascot “The Stig” is also in the game as part of its challenges. The game also features scoreboards in order for players to grow their skills and compare their performance with their friends.

However, the “Drivatar” function, which analyzes your own driving style and puts that into the AI of your opponent cars, will apparently not carry over into Forza Motorsport 6 Apex. Instead the game will be focusing on having a variety of racing events that each evolve around a certain car.

However, details are sketchy about whether paid expansions will be a thing.

Turn 10, the developers of the Forza Motorsport series, has also said that subsequent Forza titles will now be developed concurrently for both the Xbox One and the PC, rather than exclusively for one console.

While Forza Motorsport 6 received positive reviews from many critics, we’ll have to see how what the gaming community thinks of Apex, considering the free-to-play model and the lack of a good portion of content that’s in the console version. However, we’ll just have to see when Forza Motorsport 6 Apex releases later this spring.
