Forza Horizon 5 has a new character creator feature in which players can apply prosthetics to their avatars.
Playground Games’ Forza Horizon 5 racing title takes players to Mexico after its last stint in the UK in Forza Horizon 4. While character creation was available then, this time around Forza Horizon 5 players can apply prosthetic limbs to their avatars. This information has been noted more recently by Kotaku following early preview impressions going live today. However, the feature has been known since earlier this year.
Kotaku notes that the character creation portion of the game kicks in after the opening sequence, and these player-created characters appear in cutscenes and talk to NPCs throughout the game. A new feature available in the character creation for representation is the introduction of prosthetic limbs. This and the addition of pronouns were revealed by Playground Games back in June 2021.
Earlier this month, 343 Industries announced that its upcoming Halo Infinite will allow players to customize their Spartans with prosthetics. 343 Industries worked with Warfighter Engaged throughout its design process.
Forza Horizon 5 is looking to launch next month on November 9, 2021, for Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC. We’re particularly excited to see how the new installment in the racing simulation series has built upon previous versions. Even more so after the launch version of Forza Horizon 4 scored a 7/10 and was improved upon post-launch in our review when we revisited the title.
