In a recent update, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor continues to impress players with its commitment to accessibility features. The patch, labelled ‘Patch 8’, introduces several enhancements aimed at making the game more inclusive for players with disability.

One of the standout additions is the expansion of “Slow Mode” options, offering players the ability to adjust game speed by 30%, 50%, or 75% of the original pace. This nuanced approach allows for assistance without sacrificing the challenge, catering to a variety of player preferences.

Additionally, Respawn has implemented active and passive audio pings for players who are blind or with low vision, enabling them to locate nearby objects and interactable elements. Each ping is uniquely tailored, enhancing the gameplay experience for those who rely on auditory cues.

Another notable feature is the introduction of a high-contrast mode, which desaturates the environment while preserving the colours of narrative and gameplay elements. While it may alter the game’s appearance, this option provides increased visibility for players with specific visual needs.

In addition to these improvements, the patch also addresses performance and stability issues across all platforms, aiming to enhance overall gameplay experience.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor initially faced criticism for performance issues on PC, but subsequent updates have significantly improved the situation. With these accessibility upgrades and continued efforts to refine performance, the game remains a solid choice for players seeking an inclusive and enjoyable gaming experience.
