Forza Motorsport will be racing its way to PC for Windows PCs, Cloud Gaming, Xbox Game Pass, and Steam on its global release day on 10 October 2023. While players can play five days early through Early Access, they still have time to make final adjustments for their PC, including syncing their Xbox Live and Steam accounts.

This will enable players to access various Xbox-related features through Steam and join multiplayer matches with friends and other players. This support guide will help players learn how to connect their Xbox Live and Steam accounts to play Forza Motorsport on day one of its release.
