“We’re expecting this to be an accessible experience for blind players, for deaf players, for players with motor accessibility needs,” game director Matthew Gallant said in a PlayStation Blog post.
“The biggest new feature we have are audio descriptions for cinematics. We partnered with Descriptive Video Works, a professional service whose background is TV, movies and video game trailers, and integrated it into the cutscenes and across all our localized languages.
“Another, which started as a prototype but ended up being really successful during playtesting is a feature that plays dialogue through the PS5 DualSense controller as haptic feedback. That way a deaf player can feel the way a line is delivered, can feel the emphasis, along with the subtitles to give some sense of how that line is delivered.”
A full list of Part 1’s accessibility features is included in the PlayStation Blog post.
Naughty Dog has also released the new footage below, which compares how the Capitol Building appears in The Last of Us Remastered for PS4 and Part 1 for PS5.
The Last of Us Part I will be released for PS5 on September 2, with the review embargo lifting on August 31 at 8am PT / 4pm BST.
