One of the most anticipated games of this year is undoubtedly Guerrilla Games’ open-world adventure title Horzion: Forbidden West. The game is an action-adventure role-playing game set in a beautiful post-apocalyptic version of the United States.
Being a sequel to one of the most beloved PlayStation exclusive, Horizon: Zero Dawn, players are expecting the game to be nothing short of brilliant. But with console exclusive titles comes the problem that I’m sure all PC gamers will hate, lack of accessibility. So today let’s check out what the new game will have to offer in this aspect.
The game has a variety of accessibility options not seen in many console games, new additions can be seen along with the options present in the previous Horizon game. Here are all the options that you should check out before getting immersed in the huge open world of the game.
- Difficulty– The game features 5 difficulty settings which allows a wide range of players to get the experience they desire and experience the story of the game. These setting are great for all players ranging from players wielding a controller for the first-time to hardcore gamers. The best addittion to the sequel is the option of custom difficulty settings where players will be able to personalize the difficul;ty setting for themselves.
- Button Layout and Customization – The efforts of the developers to make sure that the players can fine tune their experience can be seen clearly in the controller settings as all controls are fully remapable which is great for players with unique habits. Game also has various controller schemes and the game also has left handed support. you also get some unique settings to maximise the abilities of the dualshock 5 to give the player best experience that the PS5 can offer
- Audio – The game also gives the players a wide control over its audio features with standard settings such as subtitle settings to more advanced options like individual control over music, speech, audio, sound effects and mono audio. You can also customize specific sounds in your game like the sound of machines, explosion , ambient sounds and more.
Horizon: Forbidden West is a clear improvement from various other Playstation exclusives in its accessibility, with consoles having a poor image amongst gamers for their accessibility options this game is a step in the right direction and we hope the next generation of games keep on improving this aspect of console gaming.
