There's no wonder that games and gaming-assisting technologies have become quite reliable over the years. This means game developers utilize the evolving gaming technologies to make gaming accessible to most people. Thus, accessibility features have become an important part of game demos or reveals.

Similarly, the developer Insomniac has revealed that its upcoming game, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, will incorporate solutions to help gamers requiring accessibility options to enjoy the game. Check out toward the end of the gameplay demo as the game's Creative Director Marcus Smith presents these accessibility features.

Games like The Last of Us Part 2 went ahead to introduce accessibility features for gamers with disabilities. Such features are greatly appreciated by gamers and have set high standards for other developers as well. It seems that Insomniac is also following the trend in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. The game is said to feature a dedicated accessibility section within the menu, containing three categories. These categories help adjust accessibility features for gameplay, camera, toggles, assists, visuals, and contrast options. The camera options allow adjusting shakes and sensitivity as well. However, you don't have to worry about losing out on trophies while using accessibility features, confirmed by Insomniac.

Additionally, the game is said to include options for gamers with disabilities, such as offering a dedicated button for Swingshot, Rift Tether, Hoverboots, and Phantom Dash. The option of toggles and assists is a welcome feature and would be enjoyed by gamers dealing with dexterity and reduced motor control problems. Toggles let gamers tap a button once instead of holding it throughout an animation. This is particularly noticed when shooting a gun, which does require holding a button in most games. With toggles, the default holding a button for shooting a weapon can be disabled.

While the PlayStation 5's DualSense controller is widely praised for its haptic feedback support, this can cause discomfort to gamers with motor issues. Nonetheless, the developers at Insomniac were smart enough to notice this and have enabled features in the game's menu to adjust rumble, vibration feedback, and haptic settings.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is releasing on June 11, exclusively on PlayStation 5.
