Steering wheel support is essential for any racing simulation that wants to be taken seriously. And now, some four months after launch, the free-to-play Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is finally ready for the pricey -- and extremely precise! -- accessories. The PC game will play nicely with a number of wheels from Logitech and Thrustmaster (including the latter's very nice T300RS). A post on Xbox Wire notes that more wheels will be supported later this month.

Specifically? The high-end Fanatec CSR and ClubSport V2 Xbox One Hub. More than that, H-pattern shifters are getting some love too for the total (virtual) racing experience. That starts with Logitech wheels, with more brands coming onboard "in the future."

And to cap off the latest update, the developers at Turn 10 are removing the "beta" tag. That's right, apparently racing wheel support was the final piece of the puzzle. Sure, the game isn't as full-featured as, say, Project Cars is (on PC or otherwise), but Apex is free. To see if your specific wheel will work with the game, hit the source link below.
