Five years after the release of their last wheel, Logitech unveiled the G923 on August 5. The wheel will be released in August 2020 at a price of $399.99. The hardware will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It will also be compatible with the next console generation at the end of 2020.
Trueforce only for certain games
Logitech’s main selling point for the new wheel is an upgraded force feedback system called “Trueforce”. The Swiss company promises a “high-definition” force feedback system with a feedback frequency of up to 4,000 Hz. According to Logitech, the wheel will thus produce “improved detail and realism compared to previous generations.”
However, Trueforce will only be available in Gran Turismo Sport, GRID (2019) and Assetto Corsa Competizione. Other games will probably not get the full force feedback power. A complete list of games compatible with the new wheel can be found here.

Besides the force feedback, Logitech also promotes its wheel with a programmable dual clutch launch assist in supported games. A firmware update is supposed to improve the outputs of the wheel.
There are going to be separate wheels for Xbox and PlayStation users. The wheels will mirror the buttons of the respective consoles’ gamepads. Some more customization options like a small wheel to adjust settings mid-race can be found as well. Both the PS4 and Xbox version will be compatible with PC.
Once again, Logitech also delivers a set of three pedals alongside the wheel. Like the wheel, they visually do not differ much from previous models.
A key point of critique about the predecessors, the G29 and G920, was the clunky brake pedal. Logitech claims to have improved the pedal by adding a progressive spring to make it more pressure-sensitive.
The package does not inlcude a shifter. However, Logitech’s “Driving Force Shifter”, which is also compatible with the older wheel models, can be added to the G923 at a price of $62.99.
