A few months ago, Ubisoft unveiled Ghost Recon Breakpoint for Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia. The game is a co-op adventure which also pushes the boundaries of storytelling and features The Punisher's Jon Bernthal. Many fans thought that Ghost Recon Breakpoint would be an expansion for Ghost Recon Wildlands, but it's an entirely new game. The title is designed to push you further than you've ever gone in a Ghost Recon game. Instead of the usual organization and certainty of your actions, you're being hunted by a powerful enemy and thrown onto the dangerous Pacific island of Auroa.
Accessibility is a very important feature that helps gamers with special needs or other disabilities enjoy an experience. It seems like Ubisoft is committed to making sure that Ghost Recon Breakpoint can be enjoyed by as many people as possible and, today, detailed an extensive list of features available to gamers. From control remapping across a variety of inputs to a wide array of visual and auditory settings, you'll have a lot of options for customizing your experience whether you're playing on Xbox One, PC, or PlayStation 4.
Ubisoft added, "Ghost Recon Breakpoint will support full remapping of keyboard, mouse, and controller inputs. The ability to fully remap the controller is a first for a Ubisoft title, and includes analog-stick clicks, button presses, analog-stick directions, and triggers. Furthermore, dozens of actions will have customizable behavior, meaning that players can assign different actions to a press, a hold, or a double-tap." Lastly, Tobii eye-tracking software can now be used to navigate menus as well as perform in-game actions.
You can take a look at the various accessibility options below.
- Text-to-speech for notifications and chat
- Colorblind contrast
- Simultaneous input allows players to use both a controller and mouse at the same time
- Interface adjustments
- Auto-run ability
- Auto-throttle ability while driving
- Tobii eye-tracking software
- Deep volume controls
- Cursor settings for a controller or mouse
- Adjust axis for sensitivity and acceleration
- Crosshair magnetism and snap
- Game difficulty
- Adjustable controller vibration
- In-game communication
