Changes to the accessibility of Deathloop begin from the title screen, where a new accessibility menu can be found under the options menu. Further customization of combat settings has been introduced, with the player now having the ability to increase or decrease the combat difficulty in single-player mode. Players can also change the number of Reprises in their game to suit their needs and preferences for a better gaming experience.

Updates such as this latest one for Deathloop are sure to encourage more people with accessibility needs to try out the game for themselves and see the improvements. Hopefully, they will soon become the industry standard, allowing all gamers to enjoy all video games.
