Forza Horizon 4 can be pushed 'beyond Ultra' on the PC

Forza Horizon 4 on the PC is something special, can be driven 'to the extreme beyond Ultra' as long as you have a 'very powerful PC'

It looks like Forza Horizon 4 is going to be quite special on the PC, with developers Playground Games teasing that not only are the minimum PC requirements lower than Forza Horizon 3 (an achievement in itself) but you can push the game "beyond Ultra" if you've got the right PC grunt.

All you'll need to play Forza Horizon 4 is a modest PC with a minimum of an Intel Core i3-4170 at 3.7GHz, 8GB of RAM and either an NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 or AMD Radeon R7 250X. Playground Games art director Benjamin Penrose he teased that the team is aiming the recommended spec at 60FPS and not 30FPS, a big change from Forza Horizon 3.

During an interview with PC Gamer, Penrose said: "We're now basing our recommended spec on 60 frames per second and not 30, which is a change from Forza Horizon 3. We're really happy with the stability and performance from launch this time round. And we've also got a whole bunch of new options you can push [your PC] to the extreme beyond Ultra, if you've got a very powerful PC. And of course we've got a load of other options in there, so you can build a view for your cameras, you also have access to the HDR option - the first time on PC for Forza".

If you've got an Xbox One X you can expect super-fluid 60FPS from Forza Horizon 4, but the developer has put some proper love into the PC version. Penrose added: "We were definitely pleased with the audience. We learned a lot [from Forza Horizon 3], we knew things weren't as smooth as they could've been, and there were some issues there from launch. But that's why we spent a lot of time focusing to make sure we get it right this time".
