God Of War Ragnarok Will Have 60+ Accessibility Options

Santa Monica Studio has given a little tidbit on the upcoming sequel to 2018’s God Of War, God Of War Ragnarok. And it’s all about the accessibility options.

God Of War Ragnarok will have “more than 60 ways to adjust gameplay to best suit your style and needs.”

All of the new accessibility features added on the PC release of God Of War (2018) will be coming to Ragnarok. So expect the following to return:

  • Auto Sprint (auto toggles sprint after holding forward for a (customisable) duration of time)
  • Persistent Dot (always on reticle)
  • Aim Style (hold/toggle)
  • Block style (hold/toggle)

And these are new accessibility options added to God Of War Ragnarok:

  • Subtitle and Captions improvements
    • subtitle and caption size
    • subtitle and caption colours
    • toggle speaker names (retained from 2018)
    • toggle captions (subtitled audio effects and cues, including gameplay-critical cues like for solving puzzles)
    • subtitle background (retained from 2018)
    • subtitle and caption background blur
    • direction indicator for audio cues
  • Scalable UI text and icons
  • Controller Remapping
  • High Contrast Mode
  • Navigation Assist (points you toward the next objective when outside combat)
  • Traversal Assitance (auto-traverse jumps, vaulting, mantling, etc.)
  • Assistance+ (Adds interaction-based moves like climbs, crawls, and squeeze-through)
  • Audio cues
    • when close to interactable items
    • unblockable attacks
    • targeting aim
    • weapons swap

This is just a sample of the 60+ accessibility options available in God Of War Ragnarok. The options will help players of all kinds- audio cues is a nice option that any player regardless of ability can benefit from, for example.

It’s great to see AAA games with the immense development budget that they have are also using part of that budget to ensure players with various level of ability can enjoy the game thanks to accessibilty options.

God Of War Ragnarok is expected to release later this year for the PS4 and PS5.
