Update June 12, 2017: Microsoft spoke about Forza 7 at the PC Gaming Show, discussing things specific to the PC version. It supports a vast array of USB peripherals. Turn 10 even tested the game with Guitar Hero controllers. There’s also effort been put into making sure a wide selection of rigs are able to play, with i5 CPUs being supported on mid-range settings.
Original story: Microsoft announced and demoed Forza Motorsport 7 at E3 today, running in native 4K on the Xbox One X. It looks pretty snazzy, which is great news for us on PC, since the game will come to Windows 10 PCs too thanks to the Play Anywhere scheme, when it releases October 3.

Forza have struck a six-year deal with Porsche, replacing Lamborghini as the series’ poster manufacturer. Taking centre stage for Forza 7 is the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
As ever, the classic Nürburgring circuit will be one of the tracks, and you can see it in action in the gameplay video below, featuring the Nissan GT-R:
Other tracks are sure to take place in sunnier regions, with the main trailer showing off some sand dunes and camels. These environments are described to be ‘living’ (whatever that means) with fully dynamic weather. There are also mechanics based on time of day.
Forza 7 will release this autumn on October 3.
