Forza Horizon 5 is out tomorrow though in terms of player numbers, it’s reportedly racked up an impressive 800,00 players in early access thus far. In the meantime, creative director Mike Brown has highlighted its various accessibility features on Xbox Wire.

A game speed modification feature, which allows for playing at reduced speed offline, is also available while High Contrast mode adjusts colors for easier readability of menus and text. Color Blindness mode is also available and can be adjusted independently of the UI and visuals. Subtitles can be enabled or disabled with options to adjust font size, background opacity, and even highlighting of key words.

There’s also a narrator for reading details on screen like text, buttons and other elements along with text-to-speech and speech-to-text options for voice chat. One can even disable moving backgrounds entirely. Finally, support for American Sign Language (ASL) and British Sign Language (BSL) in cinematics via a picture-in-picture display at the bottom of the screen is “coming soon.”

Forza Horizon 5 releases for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC along with launching day one for Xbox Game Pass tomorrow. Check out our official review here.
