Forza Horizon 5 features neutral pronoun option in character creation

Microsoft’s new racing game, Forza Horizon 5, will feature a neutral pronoun option in the character creation menu. This is the first time that the franchise will allow the use of the term, used to refer to non-binary people, that is, people who do not identify with the male or female gender.

    The character creation screen appears right after the initial gameplay snippet, which serves as a “welcome” to the game. In the menu, the player can customize the character’s name, hair, skin color, voice and pronouns, which can be:

    • He/His (He/Him)
    • Her/Her (She/Her)
    • Elu/Elus (They/Them)
