God of War Ragnarok is one of the most anticipated titles of the year and according to recent information, it will also be one of the most accessible. Sony has revealed all the God of War Ragnarok accessibility options, and the list includes more than 70 features.
Accessibility features don’t get highlighted often. It is fair to assume that the majority of God of War players are able-bodied and have no use for these options. However, Sony has gone above and beyond to make the latest installment of the franchise as accessible as possible. These features ensure that players can optimize their experience based on their individual needs.
The God of War Ragnarok accessibility options are divided into four presets, Vision Accessibility, Hearing Accessibility, Motion Reduction, and Motor Accessibility. Each preset can be applied in full or just parts of it.
Some of the options in the Vision Accessibility preset include high contrast HUD, UI text size, and navigation assist. The game also includes subtitles, captions, and direction indicators for players deaf or hard of hearing. Other options will reduce the shaking of the camera and will change textures.
A common misconception is that accessibility makes games easier and that is not the case. The accessibility options for God of War Ragnarok have nothing to do with the level of difficulty of the game. It will remain as difficult as the game of an able-bodied player. Making the game more accessible can take away invisible layers of difficulty that players with a disability must face.
God of War Ragnarok is coming out on November 9, 2022. The game will be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
The game has received outstanding early reviews, naming it the best game of the saga. According to some reports, the main storyline could take around 28 hours of play.
