Cyberpunk 2077 Subtitles
Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed several times, and gamers still don’t know much about the full extent of what the game has to offer. What I can tell you is that there will be helpful accessibility options available when the game finally releases. Recently, players voiced concern on Twitter about the size of the subtitles. Trailers displayed very small subtitles that were barely readable for gamers with visual impairments. However, the developers at CD Projekt Red assured players that there are customizable options available at launch. You will be able to customize both the size and color of the subtitles. The subtitles will also be available in a variety of languages including English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Polish (other languages will be added at a later date). There’s still a lot yet to be uncovered, but it’s great to know the developers are listening to feedback and making sure Cyberpunk 2077 will be accessible to disabled gamers.
Quite a few games stood out at Sony’s PlayStation 5 conference this year, and the RPG Haven was definitely one of them. The development team at The Game Bakers just opened up about the design process in making Haven, and they say accessibility was on their mind from the beginning. Haven has very large subtitle font right off the bat, bigger than most AAA games offer and a size the team calls “big enough for everyone.” The idea is to make the game accessible by default, as they will even include a scaling option to increase the text size further if you prefer. There are also more accessibility options, like an assist mode for combat and remappable controls to change certain commands. Check out the full list of accessible options coming to Haven in the article above. Haven is expected to release on December 3rd of this year for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Race With Ryan: Road Trip Deluxe Edition
There’s a lot of racing games out there, but not all of them are accessible to disabled gamers. Race With Ryan: Road Trip Deluxe Edition is a re-release of Race With Ryan, which came out last year on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The new release brings with it a bunch of new content, like new racing tracks as well as new accessibility features. The Deluxe Edition lets players customize settings to allow for auto acceleration, making it so all you have to do is steer the vehicle through the track. For younger players and those with learning disabilities, there are tutorials to help teach the controls. If you’re looking for an easy to play and family friendly racing game, look no further than Race With Ryan: Road Trip Deluxe Edition!
