    BeamNG Drive has been on Windows Only since it was released for Alpha. It would be cool if they could add support for Xbox.
    The Xbox One Specs:
    CPU: 1.75 GHZ 8 Core AMD
    GPU: 853 MHZ (Original) 914 MHZ (Slim)
    RAM: 8 GB

    And, The new Xbox One X, has groundbreaking specs, which beamng would run amazing on.

    CPU: 2.3 GHz AMD 8 Core APU
    GPU: 1.2 GHz Clock Speed
    RAM: 12 GB GDDR5 (9GB For games)

    It would be cool to see BeamNG drive on the Xbox One X. It clearly can run it good. And, with some edits it might run on the Xbox One Original.

    Not only are you wrong but this has been suggested many times already. Not going to happen. TLDR the consoles are too weak, different OS, and the devs already have enough work on the pc version.

    For the entire different hardware and OS they would need to do a complete rework of the engine and the game.


    And 2.3 ghz is honestly REALLY low for BeamNG. My 3.3 i5 can barely run it at constant 60 with everything turned down.

    the most important thing for beamng's physics calculations is single-threaded cpu performance.
    a 2.3 ghz apu wont even be able to run a single car at 60 fps.

    There are way too many buttons and options to be supported on consoles.
    It will either not happen or be a simplified version of the current game and mod support wouldnt happen too

    and im not even mentioning the complete rework

    Really? Must be the GPU, my I3 at 3.7Ghz can hit 60 fps without trying.

    This has been suggested multiple times. It will never happen and has been denied even by the devs. next time bud use the search bar.
