Don’t Nod’s meditative climbing game Jusant launched last month amidst a sea of major releases, and was met with widespread praise from critics and audiences upon its release. In the wake of its launch, the developer has now released a new update for the title that adds several significant accessibility options.

Those new options include a Simplified Climbing Mode, which uses only the analog sticks instead of the triggers, as well as a No Stamina Moe, which, as its name suggests, deactives the stamina mechanic. There’s also a new Jump Assistance option, a new Simplified Interactions Mode, an Alternate Rappel Mode, and several new colour blindness options and intensity sliders.

Meanwhile, the update also addresses a number of bugs and technical issues across the experience, ranging from animations to the UI to audio and more. You can view the full patch notes below.

Jusant is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Read our review of the game through here.
