Reviews for Santa Monica Studio’s God of War Ragnarok went live yesterday, and it’s receiving universal praise for its story, combat, visuals, and much more. However, another aspect that the sequel is innovating is its accessibility features. Though the developer outlined many of them before, a list of all 70 features is now available.

Upon opening the Accessibility tab, four presets are available: Vision Accessibility, Hearing Accessibility, Motion Reduction, and Motor Accessibility. You can enable some options or all, with the ability to alter each function. Check out the full list of options for each menu below:

  • Auto pickup
  • Traversal assist
  • Mini-game style
  • Audio cues

Changed setting indicator

Options: Automatic

  • Settings that are changed from their default value will be indicated with a blue color to allow for faster identification

In these options, players can elect to tap or hold the button for sequences that require repeated pressing, blocking, aiming, and so on. You can also enable Evade Assist for greater immunity while evading, though this is not available in No Mercy and God of War difficulties. You can also adjust the delay before Auto Sprint activates – the lower the value, the less time it takes for Kratos to start sprinting.
