Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Gets New Accessibility Options

Developer Respawn Entertainment has released a new major update for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor which adds new accessibility options to the game. The latest patch adds new features including a new audio ping functionality that “allows players to both passively and actively ping the environment”, a new high contrast mode that “allows players to desaturate the environment and use colors specifically for narrative and gameplay elements”, and more. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor first launched on April 28 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and EA App.

The full patch notes via the developer:


This patch introduces two new features and several improvements to Slow Motion in order to make Star Wars Jedi: Survivor accessible to even more players.

  • A new high contrast mode allows players to desaturate the environment and use colors specifically for narrative and gameplay elements, making them stand out more.
  • A new audio ping functionality allows players to both passively and actively ping the environment, giving the ability to echolocate objects and interactable elements nearby.
  • This update includes additional slow motion presets. With this new implementation players can toggle between both their own custom value and three new presets.
    The presets are set at 30%, 50% and 75% and available through the shortcut menu. This will allow users to switch between multiple different slow motion values, and not just the custom value and the default game speed.
