Forza Motorsport 7 will get a PC demo before launch, Microsoft confirmed at Gamescom on Monday. Plus, the game's developer – Turn 10 Studios – has lowered the minimum and recommended system specifications needed to run it on PC.
Forza Motosport 7 PC requirements
Turn 10 said that it has managed to optimise the Forza 7 engine to run it at 60fps on a range of PCs, with an Intel Core i5-750 2.67GHz / AMD FX-6300 and Nvidia GT 740 / Nvidia GTX 650 / AMD R7 250X being the new minimum, giving you HD (720p) at 60fps.
As for recommended specs – designed for full-HD (1080p) at 60fps – you'll need an Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz / AMD FX-8350 and Nvidia GTX 670 / Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti / AMD RX 560.
For those wishing to take the leap to 4K at 60fps, you'll require an Intel Core i5-6700K and Nvidia GTX 1080 / AMD RX Vega 64.
Forza Motorsport 7 PC customisation
In terms of customisations, Forza 7 has a benchmark mode, 21:9 display support, 8x multi-sample anti-aliasing (MSAA), and 16x anisotropic peripherals. The game will also have an unlocked frame-rate option, much like Forza Horizon 3 on PC, so you can push it further if you've a 144Hz monitor.
Forza Motorsport 7 peripheral support
Turn 10 has also worked hard to include support for more than 30 gamepads and racing wheels, so you can enjoy Forza 7 the way you want to. You can find the full list over at Xbox Wire's official announcement.
There's no release date on the PC demo yet. The full version of Forza Motorsport 7 will be available September 29 for users who pre-order the Ultimate Edition, and October 3 for those who opt for Standard and Deluxe editions.
