Accessibility is a big deal, and it’s great to see more publishers take it seriously. Capcom should be commended for plotting a free accessibility update for Resident Evil Village, then, which will launch alongside the upcoming Winters’ Expansion and Gold Edition re-release. To be clear, even if you don’t buy the add-on or new version, you’ll be eligible to download this update for your existing game with a patch.
The new options are as follows:
- Subtitle size, colour, and background toggles
- Speaker name display in story mode
- Closed captions
- Permanent reticule
Obviously we’re seeing games like The Last of Us: Part I go even further with their accessibility options, down to details like narration of what’s happening on screen. The main thing is that more publishers are paying attention, and if these additions help even one more person enjoy the game, then it’ll be worthwhile.
Really looking forward to the dlc.
And to see capcom doing this is great.
Great to see free accessibility options being included.
First person games are not accessible to me they give me headaches
@DualWielding Well they're adding third-person support as part of the DLC.
Accessibility options lately have been fantastic. Great to see this happening. More people in the gaming tent.
Is that a line she actually says?
@get2sammyb Didn't know that, now I'm suddenly interested
@zupertramp Nah just reciting a Happy Mondays tune
I need a Permanent reticule option for RE7. I get motion sickness without it. Playing RE 2 & 3 combo I got for $20. No motion sickness there.
Cool to see more accessibility options. But still no FOV slider.. And still a bit annoying third person view is locked behind Gold Edition. Really want to play the game, but the current FOV is abysmal, and third person view could also fix that. But nope!
