During a recent showcase for Playstation’s upcoming game Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, some of the title’s new features were highlighted. This included gaming accessibility, meaning the company wanted to ensure the game could be played by anybody. Since the event, disabled members of the gaming community have come forth to applaud efforts to make the game more inclusive.
Bobby (a.k.a. WheelyBadTweets on Twitter) is a freelance gamer and writer that explained how Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart made it easier for him to play. “I have mobility issues so the use of my hands is a problem in games,” he said. “The toggle option will give me the ability to work the controls around my own ability level, such as toggling aim instead of being forced to hold it down to aim, using auto-aim features to help me when my hands become tired. This to me was very meaningful as I felt considered and seen as a disabled gamer. This does appear to be more inclusive than most other AAA games on the market right now.”
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a single-player game that will be released on the Playstation 5 later this year. The game can be pre-ordered on the Playstation website for $69.99
