Modern Warfare 3 to have a separate control scheme designed for disabled players
A recent Twitter exchange involving Infinity Ward's creative strategist Robert Bowling, suggests that Modern Warfare 3 will have a special control scheme designed specifically for disabled gamers.
The whole thing started when a fan asked Bowling if his disabled brother would be able to adjust the game’s controls.
Here's Bowling's response:
No details about these control settings were given but we can also say that there will also be a special feature that will allow color-blind players to change the red and green indicators to orange and blue.
It’s nice to see that Infinity Ward is thinking about stuff like this, as it will allow even more people who previously may not have been able to enjoy this wonderful medium that we all love, the chance to do the same.
Here’s hoping that more developers follow in their footsteps.
Hurray, a nice and probably really easy feature that all games after this should copy. I also hope they put in completely modifiable control schemes (which all games should have anyway.)
i dont think enough devalapors put it in a game i think its pretty cool of them flr doing it
I hope they don't make it easier per se. You know, like increased aim-assist or something. Otherwise any hope of me getting this game is gone.
activision just stop.No matter how hard you try,theres no way you can redeem yourself as a company.Leave the good deeds to valve
I bet it is a $10 day 1 DLC.
I hear you. I still can't understand why full button remapping isn't commonplace in console games. Every PC game has it and if it is a problem on the software level then just move it up to a hardware level. There are controlers on the market that allow full button remapping on the control.
Well no. There are various severity of conditions when it comes to colour blindness, what you're talking about is the complete lack of an ability to see colour. What is more common is certain colours looking the same particularly reds and greens. By allowing people to swap that to blue and orange so they can actually tell the difference.
Even if it doesn't help much it's nice to see Developers consider us disabled gamers.
They should have released it for all systems with traditional controls :(
Wait...why do they need a color blind version...gray is still gray if your colorblind.
This is a step in the right direction, in my opinion anyway. I play using Southpaw (joysticks swapped) controls, because I'm left handed. I know this isn't a handicap, but hear me out. Some gaming companies DO NOT provide southpaw controls to some games, which means I can't play them to a satisfactory condition. My hope is that this sheds some light on the control scheme factor, if they continue helping out the disabled, maybe us lefty's can catch a break too.
I may not know anyone who would benefit from this, but it's still very thoughtful. Maybe this will dumb down the massive amounts of hate the game unfairly gets.
Oh, what am I saying? Of course it won't. Life is too predictable sometimes.
My brother is disabled but he hates COD
That's pretty nice that they're doing this. Color blind options have been made for a few puzzle games in the past, but they're usually not integrated into that many games as a whole.
Pretty neat, I must say. :3
This is definitely awesome. I'm glad a company is trying to at least make an initiative to help our fellow disabled gamers enjoy the game and receive a much more full experience. I still remember the posts I read over at Gamefaqs about the one Sonic Fan who wanted to play Sonic Free Riders but because Sega didn't allow for standard controls he could never play it. I understand a game designed for motion controls may not allow for it but they could have added some sort of traditional formula. Not all games work for Motion controls. >_>
Point to the IW.
