Blizzard also offers various accessibility options with Diablo IV, which are becoming increasingly important in games and are aimed at players who have problems here and there. A new story trailer also further tunes in to the release.
With this in mind, the team at Blizzard has worked hard to improve accessibility and adapt the game to the needs of all players. Diablo IV now offers more than 50 individual accessibility options, which provide support in the areas of dexterity, readability and visibility, among other things.
“The only limitation to adventuring in Sanctuary should be interest, not ability to play,” says Lead Accessibility Designer Drew McCrory. “Based on the foundation laid with Diablo II: Resurrected, the team has developed accessibility features that aim to support players with disabilities while not restricting gameplay for others. The team then continued to refine the resulting features until they added value without changing the core gameplay. What’s left are accessibility options that support as many players as possible to play.”
