The Horizon Festival dyes the whole world from Mexico
While in forums such as ResetERA it was commented minute by minute to during the last hours of the night in Pacific time how many players dialed the game servers, Phil Spencer himself has taken advantage of his personal Twitter account to report not only this data of more than 4.5 million players —which can be consulted in the game’s own Horizon Festival—, but also to put the value of this figure into context.
It took Forza Horizon 4 a full week to get through the 2 million players. The fifth installment has tripled the active user base of the fourth episode on its debut day.Spencer said, thanking the entire community for their continued support.
Forza Horizon 5, a step forward in accessibility
Playground Games wants everyone to be able to play Forza Horizon 5. After knowing they were going to include inclusion options in terms of gender identity, with pronouns like he, she and elle (for people who identify as non-binary), then we learned about all the accessibility options incorporated since its premiere; including visual, sound and mechanical. Additionally, the game will be updated with support for American Sign Language (ASL) and British Sign Language (BSL) for cinematic scenes.
