Modern Warfare 3 to feature optional colour assist
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will include a feature granting enhanced accessibility to those with variations in colour vision.
“I am happy to report that we are working on a Colour Blind Assist option for Modern Warfare 3,” Sledgehammer COO Michael Condrey wrote on the Sledgehammer blog.
Understandably, a lack of colour assist can be a deal breaker for shooter fans, as being unable to tell which radar blips are friendly and which are foe is incapacitating. Good on you, Sledgehammer.
Variations in colour perception are startlingly prevalent, affecting up to ten percent of men in some territories, but significantly fewer women. You may not even know you have one, and suddenly, your friends’ objections to to that shirt you love are made clear.
