Good for those that didn't know, but this has been out for a while - not to be confused with Forza Horizon 3 which is just appearing in the Windows Store now as a demo (available on 12/09) and the full game releasing at the end of the month.

Bootcamp? Unfortunately it's on horrendous Windows Store so you need Windows.

It's been available for months. It was released in May. Microsoft have however dropped the Beta tag releasing it as a full free product and adding wheel support.

I recall reading some news about Microsoft bringing their Xbox games to Steam than just keeping it a Windows Store exclusive so who knows, maybe they'll make gamers even happier.

they probably plan to alienate their clients & make things as difficult as possible. After all, that policy has served Apple incredibly well.

Microsoft and its Phil Spencer seem to know the market they're dealing with so there's perhaps a glimpse of hope at the end of the tunnel. I bet even Microsoft knows the Windows Store is atrociously bad but it's their own digital store so they won't admit it.

Like Apple won't admit iTunes is a crappy bloatware prgram.

I'm running the game. You can download win 10 update direct from Microsoft.

I thought the point of this free game was to promote 4k gaming. I too would need a new PC (_;)

Yes you can play in 4k but then you'd need a specially beffy card to play on high settings and 4k. In my opinion if your playing on a big tv and sat within three metres its worth it. If however you are further away you can't tell the difference between full hd and 4k. I'm playing F1 racing stars and sonic all star racing in 4k though. vrrrrrhum!

you need to install windows 10 anniversary addition. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10 you can install the update to windows 10 via the above link.

Several things put me off getting this game:

1. You have to use the Microsoft Store on Windows to download it. No idea why this is so if it's a freebie - why not just a plain download of an exe or zip that any platform can get? Hey, why not a torrent since it's a legal free download?

2. The minimum spec of the graphics card needed for this is out of range of most casual gamers. Yes, Ithis might be a "AAA" title for all I know, but can you lower the resolution/detail and use it on a lesser card (the specs give no clue you can)?

3. You need not only Windows 10 (which I do have) to download it, but also the Anniversary Update (which I don't have - it's still being rolled out until at least November apparently - and, no the updater given in the previous post doesn't work on Enterprise edition).

So I've got to wait potentially months to get the anniversary update, do an 18-odd GB download (without a torrent, so keep your fingers crossed) and even tbhen, my sub-min spec graphics card might either not work at all or give an unplayable FPS. At this point as you can probably guess, I've given up on the freebie.
