Oh blimey, it's almost here. The gaming industry has turned to PlayStation for what looks to be the last truly big video game launch of the year, and suddenly, there's a lot of pressure on Santa Monica Studio's dramatic close to the saga of Kratos and Atreus, God of War: Ragnarok.

The game is set to be a pretty big deal, and yet, we still haven't seen much of it, with gameplay coming in mere trickles, with fans hoping for a new full trailer soon.

But we've just got a new peek at gameplay, along with the reveal of a collection of new accessibility features.

God Of War Ragnarok Reveals New Accessibility Features

A new look at God of War has been revealed, with new gameplay footage accompanied by details of some of the new features being introduced in the game to make the game accessible for everyone.

The footage was debuted by GameInformer, who shared a video that reveals that over 60 accessibility features will be included in the game. They focus on four primary areas - motor skills, vision, hearing and cognitive understanding.

The video displays a new brighter way of observing hitboxes, as well as some adjustments to puzzle difficulty and the opportunity to map actions to a swipe on the DualSense controller's touchpad.

When Does God Of War: Ragnarok Come Out?

It's not too long before we can actually get our hands on Ragnarok for ourselves, and we can enjoy what may be the final notable AAA release of the year.

God of War: Ragnarok comes out on November 9, so in only a couple of months, we'll finally see the finale of Kratos and Atreus' story.

This new revelation of the game's accessibility features is more than welcome, as we know that now, anyone can get involved. It looks like Ragnarok is about to make a serious splash.
