During the festivities at Gamescom 2017, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios pulled the cover off of Forza Motorsport 7’s PC requirements. The game was initially revealed at this year’s E3 conference as one of the showcase titles for Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One X. It is being hyped as the frontrunner for the company’s 4K gaming console experiences.

The tradition continues with Forza Motorsport 7, but the game will also run at more modest settings on a wide variety of hardware.
