Sony Interactive Entertainment has made an announcement that they have now begun rolling out accessibility tags for PlayStation 5. Accessibility tags will only be available for PS5 and PS4 games on the PlayStation Store for the newer consoles. These tags will give you an overview of the accessibility features available in the games.
Hideaki Nishino, the Senior Vice President of Platform Experience, took to PlayStation Blog and said
Developers can use the Accessibility Tags to provide information about the various accessibility features that the games support. It is pretty simple to use! You must press the triangle button on the PlayStation Store at a game hub, and a list of supported accessibility features will appear.
The developers will release approximately 50 distinct tags across six categories over the next week. Furthermore, if the game is listed on the PlayStation Store and is available on both platforms, you can compare and contrast the tags available for PS5 and PS4.
However, a few games will have accessibility tags from the start when they are released. These games include well-known titles, including Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, God of War Ragnarök, Days Gone, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, and many more.
The PlayStation blog further revealed the categories across which the accessibility tags will be released. These include Visual accessibility, Subtitle & caption options, Gameplay options, Audio features, Online communication, and Control options.
