Sony is taking accessibility seriously with the launch of its PS5 Access Controller later this year, but great work continues to be invested on the software side as well. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is the next tentpole title from PlayStation Studios, and unsurprisingly Insomniac Games has committed to continuing to advance the suite of comfort features included in the release.
While the Burbank-based developer has yet to officially announce the full list of accessibility features included in the game, a PlayStation website update has given us a glimpse into what’s planned. Most notably, you’ll be able to slow the combat speed down to 70 per cent, 50 per cent, or even 30 per cent its full speed, allowing you to more easily react to what’s unfolding on screen.
Obviously, not everyone will want to do this – it’s a toggleable option, after all – but it should help make combat encounters more manageable for those with disabilities, or people who don’t feel especially comfortable playing action-heavy games. The likes of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales already had great accessibility options, so we’re expecting an even more impressive suite here.
