Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will include even more accessibility options

One of the core focuses by studios in recent years has been the desire to make their games more and more accessible, with each year seeing games offer increasing options for players of all kinds. Ahead of Spider-Man 2’s October release, the team at Insomniac Games have detailed the many new accessibility options which will be available at launch.

Back in 2020 we reported that Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II would offer over 60 accessibility options, ranging from the visual to the auditory and everything in between. Since then, more and more studios have followed in their footsteps, upping the ante when it comes to accessibility.

Many first-party PlayStation studios have opted to include dozens of different options to make their games as accessible as possible. Insomniac Games for example have been doing so with the likes of Spider-Man Remastered and Miles Morales.

While these games already included a bunch of options (such as QTE auto complete; the ability to switch between button presses and holds; enhanced auto aim; accessibility vibration and more), the team looks set to one-up themselves, this time bringing a whole new suite of options.

As part of Spider-Man 2’s Q&A page Insomniac Games detailed the new options which will be available alongside all previous additions, namely:

  • Audio: Screen reader support will read aloud all on-screen text in menus
  • Captions: On-screen captions and audio descriptions are available for cinematic scenes
  • Gameplay: You can choose to slow down the action to 70%, 50% or 30% of the full speed, switching back to regular speed at any time

The speed-altering option in particular will be useful to many in Spider-Man 2, especially as the sequel has already shown off a much speedier Spider-Man – making it even more useful than it would have been in the first game.

As mentioned, these are merely the new additions, with all prior accessibility options from the first game’s remaster also set to be included, meaning more than 60 separate options will be available when Spider-Man 2 launches on the 20th of October.
