Spider-Man 2 accessibility features let you slow down combat

Other features include on-screen text for cutscenes and narrated menu text

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will include accessibility features to slow down combat all the way down to 30 percent speed.

According to the game’s official listing from Sony, the accessibility settings offer options to slow down gameplay between 70, 50 and 30 percent. In addition, players can change the settings back at any time to full speed. With the growing emphasis on accessibility in gaming, the new feature in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 marks a huge victory for the cause.

Other accessibility features in the game include on-screen captions and audio descriptions for cutscenes. The game also supports a screen reader that can read all on-screen text in the menus. Moreover, the accessibility features in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 demonstrate Sony’s ongoing recent commitment towards making its games more accessible.

Another recent example comes from one of Insomniac’s other new games. In Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, players can also slow down the speed of the game. Sony also will soon offer a customizable Access accessibility controller for the PlayStation 5 this December.
