Naughty Dog confirms more than 60 accessibility features for the game.

As its launch date draws closer, Sony and Naughty Dog are gearing up for the launch of The Last of Us Part II. One of the most awaited games this year, it has already fallen to numerous delayed release dates and leaks, but it’s full steam ahead for the game’s release on June 19th.

Just recently, Naughty Dog systems designer Matthew Gallant published a post on the PlayStation blog and showcased the game’s accessibility features that will be available when the game launches. More than 60 accessibility features will be available, ranging from the fine-motor and fearing options and even features that will allow visually impaired gamers to play the game.

To do this, Naughty Dog worked with various accessibility consultants to help make The Last of Us Part II one of the most accessible games ever. The post goes into great detail on how each accessibility setting will be beneficial to the user, ensuring that the game can be played by a wider audience.

Some of the interesting accessibility features include:

Alternate controls – This lets you remap the buttons and controls according to how it is convenient for you.

Colorblind mode – This allows you to change the colors of the game that will be more visually convenient.

Camera shake – You can turn off this feature to eliminate motion sickness.

Enhanced Listen Mode – Allows you to scan for items that you can salvage or add to your inventory in Listen Mode.

The amount of detail that Naughty Dog has put into The Last of Us Part II’s accessibility options and even the game for that matter just adds to the reason why we can’t wait to play it.

The Last of Us Part II continues the story, Ellie, as she navigates a post-apocalyptic world where she comes into conflict with a mysterious Christian cult while also surviving against an increasing horde of creatures infected by mutated fungus strain. The game will be an exclusive title for the PlayStation 4.
