Modern Warfare 3 to feature optional colour assist

Friday, 8th July 2011 02:52 GMT By Brenna Hillier

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.

Thanks, Destructoid.

    @1, both are equally correct, even if one version comes from a silly u-light and z-heavy version of “English”.

    get over it.

    im colourblind to some extend.
    Especialy radars and to similar colours for fractions give me headache.
    more games should adopt this!
    even better, the platform itself should be able to do this for every game.

    In English it’s “colour”, in American English (and I guess elsewhere) it’s “color”.
