Borderlands 3 accessibility features include button remapping, closed captioning

Gearbox announced today that the upcoming Borderlands 3 will have a number of accessibility features.

Most notably, you can fully remap all of the controls, whether you’re playing on console or PC. This makes Borderlands 3 fully compatible with the Xbox Adaptive Controller.

In addition, players will be able to toggle headbob, auto-mantling, and aim assist options. There will also be extensive closed captioning options (including adjustable text size and opacity) as well as options for color blindness.

Gearbox also unveiled a new pinging system that “allows you to quickly and effectively communicate with your co-op partners without speaking. If you ping enemies, loot chests, guns, or other key points of interest in the game world, those interest points are highlighted in-world and on the mini-map for all players to see, and your character fires off a contextually-relevant VO line.”

Gearbox and 2K Games announced Borderlands 3 back in March. It is scheduled for release on PC via Epic Games Store, PS4, and Xbox One on September 13, 2019.
