Forza Motorsport 7 PC requirements released alongside a list of supported peripherals

Crackdown 3 might be off the table but Microsoft still has one big exclusive game coming our way later this year in the form of ‘Forza Motorsport 7’. Much like Forza Horizon 3, this game will appear on both Xbox One and PC at launch. If you are planning on picking it up on a PC, then you’ll be glad to know that today, Turn 10 released some very detailed system requirements for the game, as well as a list of supported peripherals at launch for those of you with simulation setups.

Talking about the PC version of the game, Turn 10 explained that Forza Motorsport 7 is ‘built from the ground up’ to be the ultimate PC racing game. This means there is a focus on getting the game running smoothly at 4K resolution, as well as other things, like support for multi-monitor setups, 21:9 displays and various racing peripherals. The game has also been tweaked extensively to run smoothly across a wide range of hardware.

There were some Forza 7 requirements announced for PC earlier this year but since then, Turn 10 has managed to tweak things further to bring the recommended and minimum specifications down a bit. The bare minimum spec will get you up and running at 720p/30fps with an Intel Core i5-750 or AMD FX-6300, 8GB of RAM and an Nvidia GT740/GTX 650 or AMD R7 250x.

Those of you wanting at least 1080p and 60 frames per second will be able to do so with an Intel Core i5-4460 or AMD FX-8350, 8GB of RAM and an Nvidia GTX 670/GTX 1050 or an AMD RX 560. If playing at 4K/60fps is your goal, then you will of course require a high-end system, featuring at least an Intel Core i7-6700K/AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia GTX 1080 or RX Vega64.

Forza Motorsport 7 will offer support for 30 gamepads and wheels right off the bat. This includes specific requests from fans. For starters, all Xbox One and Dualshock 4 gamepads are supported. Here is a list of some of the other peripherals you can use:

KitGuru Says: Microsoft's first-party studios have really been stepping up their efforts when it comes to supporting PC. Now all Microsoft needs to do is sort out the Windows Store because while the games have improved, the store is still a mess.
