Forza Motorsports 7 will offer a huge amount of choice for PC players, according to developers Turn 10. Brian Ekberg, the game’s community manager, says allowing PC players freedom to play the way they want is “really important.”
Forza Horizon 3 makes it onto our list of the best racing games on PC.
Forza Motorsports 7 will be the third game that Turn 10 have developed for PC, but it’ll be the first full Motorsports title they’ll be porting. Ekberg says that “we’ve learned so much about what players want from a PC game. In fact we’ve added a new view, a realist cockpit view, that’s perfect for players who play with pedals and wheels.”
The move towards providing peripheral options in Forza 7 is something that Turn 10 have clearly focused on. Ekberg says “we’ve heard loud and clear from players who want a huge list of peripherals, all fan requested wheels are supported on Forza Motorsports 7 on PC.”
“If you’re a PS4 player and you want to plug in your logitech D29, or even your Dualshock on PC, you can do it in Forza 7.”
To make the game even more accessible on PC, Turn 10 have also “lowered our minimum spec for Forza 7 and our recommended spec is lowered as well. We feel that’s really important, because we want players, whatever setup they’ve got, whatever peripherals they prefer to race on, we want to give them that opportunity to play it.”
While Ekberg doesn’t directly mention mouse and keyboard, it’s a pretty safe bet that they’re included in a lot of popular PC setups.
To make it abundantly clear just how accessible Forza 7 is due to be, Turn 10 recently announced that you’d be able to play Forza 7 with Guitar Hero guitar, a drumset, and even a dance pad. A demo for Forza 7 will be playable “in the coming weeks.”
