Ghost Recon Breakpoint Will Feature A Host Of Accessibility Features
Breakpoint aims to open the doors for many players.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint is getting close now, and it promises a massive amount of content to keep you coming back for more and more as the Ghosts face off against their most dangerous foe yet. And Ubisoft is going to make sure that as many people as possible are going to have the ability to access said content with a host of new accessibility features.
Via the game’s official blog, the accessibility features were detailed, and they were quite vast. From subtitle options to various remapping options for both controllers and mouse and keyboard and even several options for the color blind, it’s some of the most extensive accessibility options we’ve seen yet, with even more planned to release post-launch.
