    ^^Well after seeing the spec's for recommended i am somewhat dubious this is not going to have some issues, 970, i7, 4gig vram, to run at 1080p/ 60fps, for a console port, we have been down this road so many times before. lol

    It's free, who cares :p At the worst it will be like killer instinct - a wasted download and uninstalled in 30 minutes. Considering it being a store app and dx12, it will be a miracle if it runs generally well lol.

    They've made a mistake on the ideal settings, as it should be a 980Ti/390X (like GOW Ultimate), as the Furys don't have 6GB+ Vram :p

    as said, this was originally described as a testing the waters thing, so I am basically treating it as a glorified demo. which I have no real problem with if it leads to better full versions down the line, assuming they sort out the uwp limits and stupid pricing on win10 :)

    but am very interested to see how this goes, ars has a semi negative piece on the upcoming game. slightly unfair as its released as a beta test and wheel support will be coming and that MS has said it will be fixing vsync and such in the upcoming update.

    because otherwise they say the game looks amazing and yes, it will need a decent PC to run well.

    970 also dont have 4GB like 290X for the recommended. Either way we need more dx12 games so its all good.

    Just to add something about wheel support. While it says 'no wheel support' it doesn't mean that wheels won't work; just that if they don't work MS isn't going to help/support the issue until they officially support it.

    Case in point, KI. XboxOne sticks aren't supported for that game but they work just fine for most people however full support is coming soon (along with long awaited drivers)

    I changed my windows EU local store to US store and I don't see it either :nerd:


    I had to use this to get Killer Instinct, which btw is a ripoff, everything locked.. Hopefully they will be more generous in Forza.. :D

    My guess is that it won't appear in the UK store until around 5am at the earliest when it will be midnight 5th May (or rather May 5th!) in the eastern US. May even be as late as 8am if Microsoft are going by Pacific time.
