Microsoft has announced that the Forza Horizon 5 update that adds sign language will be announced tomorrow, March 1.
After installation, the Playground Games racing game will allow you to enable an option (in Settings > Accessibility > Sign Language) to display American Sign Language (ASL) and British Sign Language (BSL) in most of the thirty theaters with which your campaign matters.
The Redmond-based company explained that to develop this new feature, it worked with members of the deaf and hard of hearing community and also recruited community speakers for interpretation.
Mike Brown, Creative Director of Forza Horizon 5, added that “video games require you to be able to experience them. And at the same time, there are players who encounter different levels of difficulty. I think we will continue to work and fix these people for a long, long time.”
Forza Horizon 5 is available exclusively for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC, and is also part of the Xbox Game Pass catalog. In his review he is told that it is “a superlative racing game, as impressive in technique as in generosity in its content”.
