‘Forza 6: Apex,’ ‘Ori,’ & ‘Killer Instinct: Season 3’ confirmed for Windows 10
Microsoft’s Xbox One Spring Showcase had plenty of reveals both on Xbox One and PCs running Windows 10. The company talked Forza 6: Apex, Ori & The Blind Forest Definitive Edition, Killer Instinct Season 3, Gears of War Ultimate Edition and more Quantum Break. Additionally, the company showed off Dark Souls 3 and The Division on Xbox One.
Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, is the brand new racing title spawned by the original Forza Motorsport 6. The game drops the cover charge of the original game on Xbox One for a free-to-play model of most racing games. The Drivatar system for racing against friends is back, along with 4K visuals and support for Forzavista car visuals. Microsoft is only willing to say that Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is set to arrive in the Windows Store sometime this spring.
The company hasn’t forgotten about racing fans on Xbox One. Forza Motorsport 6 is getting new cars in the Porsche Expansion Pack. The upgrade will include the new Virginia International Raceway, an 8-hour campaign addition and 21 different Porsche cars. Killer Instinct: Season 3 arrives on Xbox One and Windows on March 29th with Rash, Kim Wu, Tusk and The Arbiter.
Microsoft promised that it would bring Gears of War Ultimate Edition to Windows on Xbox last summer. The company went dark after that, not mentioning the game once. Gears of War Ultimate Edition is available in the Windows Store for $29.99 today. The game supports 4K displays, but doesn’t have widescreen support.
Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is a re-released version of the game of the same name from last year. New content, areas, abilities, story are included. The game arrives on March 11th.
