Death Stranding Update Will Make It More Accessible
Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding is adding bigger text sizes and the ability to dispose of vehicles in December.
Death Stranding is a very divisive game. While many people just outright hate the gameplay or story, smaller annoyances could sometimes anger players like myself who otherwise liked Kojima’s latest outing. Fortunately, Kojima Productions revealed on Twitter today that an update to fix a couple of issues that players have with the game will arrive in December.
The first improvement that this update will bring is a feature that will make the game much more accessible. As those who have played the game can vouch for, Death Stranding contains a ton of menus with extremely small text sizes. They can sometimes be very hard to read, especially for those that are visually impaired in some way. Thankfully, the developer confirmed that an option to increase text sizes will be included in this update. Even though we don’t know to what extent this can be customized, it’s always great to see games become more accessible over time.
The other notable addition in this December update will be the ability to dispose of individual features. While this is a smaller issue than the text sizes, it will make garage management easier and shows that Kojima Productions is listening to feedback regarding Death Stranding. You can see the tweet confirming all of this below:
