Forza 7 is an Xbox Play Anywhere Title

Forza 7 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title. Buying a digital copy unlocks a Windows version and a console version for as little as $59.99.

Xbox Play Anywhere games also sync saves between Xbox One consoles and Windows PCs. Any DLC that gamers purchases work on both systems also. In some cases, gamers on Xbox One can play with gamers on PC over Xbox Live. We don’t know if that cross-platform play is in Forza 7.

Forza 7 is an Enhanced for Xbox One X Title

For the best visuals, Forza 7 buyers need an Xbox One X. The console has a new processor, RAM and GPU that allow developers to use every pixel on a 4K display. Xbox One X launches on November 7th.

Turn 10 Studios, Forza 7’s developer, says that the game will run at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second with HDR. It’s also promising very smooth movement at 60 frames per second. Frames per second measures how many times the console refreshes what’s on your television. The higher the amount, the more life-like things look. HDR stands for High-Dynamic Range. HDR enhances color contrast. Forza is one of only two Xbox exclusive games that will have full Xbox One X Enhanced support this fall.

Extra purchases aren’t necessary to enjoy the game. Forza 7 works on high-definition televisions that don’t have HDR. Xbox One and Xbox One S owners can play the game. Gamers on those consoles only miss out on the improved visuals.
