We recently talked about how Forza Horizon 4 aimed at hitting 60 FPS on PC and keeping in mind the pretty low requirements, you can imagine that most PCs will be able to hit that sweet spot easily. Playground Games touched on the matter and the following is what the studio had to say in this regard:

We’re now basing our recommended spec on 60 frames per second and not 30, which is a change from Forza Horizon 3. We’re really happy with the stability and performance from launch this time round. And we’ve also got a whole bunch of new options you can push [your PC] to the extreme beyond Ultra, if you’ve got a very powerful PC. And of course we’ve got a load of other options in there, so you can build a view for your cameras, you also have access to the HDR option – the first time on PC for Forza.

We also learned about the weather system in the game and that is something that you should look into if you are interested in playing Forza Horizon 4 PC when it comes out. For further information regarding the game, stay tuned.
