Arcane Studios has released the third major update for death loop, which adds a whole host of accessibility features. There is now an accessibility category in the options menu that contains the previously introduced settings (some of which have been upgraded) in addition to the new ones.

Players can customize various gameplay elements, although some settings are limited to single-player mode – that is, when you play as Colt and Julianna are controlled by AI rather than an invading human. These include slowing down the game speed, adjusting the number of reprises (or lives) you have, and making the battle easier or harder. There are also more user interface options, such as the ability to change the color, size, and opacity of some text and graphics.

In addition, players can finally navigate menus with the directional buttons instead of using a cursor. What an understanding! If you prefer to use a cursor, you can now adjust the movement speed.

When death loop Landed on PS5 and PC last September, it was critically acclaimed, with critics praising its well-constructed gameplay, art style, level design, and story. However, accessibility advocates be aware issues that made the game difficult for disabled players, like the text size, the lack of a controller reassignment option, and the low contrast. Hopefully this update will allay most, if not all, of their concerns.

“We are really grateful to the players and the allies community who gave us so much feedback when death loop was released,” lead UI/UX designer Yoann Bazoge told the PlayStation Blog† “We took the time to read all the accessibility reviews and watch the videos from players explaining why they couldn’t play death loop† We then worked on a document with all the feedback and created a roadmap of what the additions would be for Game Update 3.”

Meanwhile, Arcane has added another much requested feature: the photo mode. This is only available in single player mode and you can use poses, filters and stickers. Players can switch between Colt and Julianna and choose a different outfit or weapon to get the exact shot they want.
