Microsoft has just announced that Forza Motorsport 6: Apex for Windows 10 has come out of beta, and will be available as a full-fledged title on the Windows store today with wheel support.

On the official Xbox Wire blog, Turn 10’s community manager, Brian Ekberg, writes that today’s Apex update is a “major  landmark for the Forza series on Windows 10”.

We’ve reached an important milestone in the development of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex – as of today, we’re lifting the “beta” tag and releasing Apex as a full-fledged (and still free!) product on the Windows 10 Store. As we exit the beta period of Forza Motorsport 6: Apex development, it’s also time to update players about an issue that many of you have been talking about since the announcement of the game: wheel support.

We’re extremely excited to announce that today’s content update for Apex will bring wheel support to the Forza Motorsport series on Windows 10 for the first time. This is a major landmark for the Forza series on Windows 10 and has been the result of months of hard work from the Turn 10 and Windows teams.

Most importantly, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is our way to introduce Forza’s award-winning gameplay to a new audience on Windows 10 and invite a new group of gamers to develop a passion for cars and racing”, said Ekberg back in April of this year.
