Star Wars Jedi: Survivor accessibility features Slow Mode

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor developers Respawn Entertainment have revealed the game’s new accessibility features and among them, the Slow Mode option can potentially slow down the motion of action.

According to the devs, the Slow Mode toggle will allow users to slow down the game’s motion “to ease the challenge of both combat and platforming.”

Jonas Lundqvist, Senior Director of Development, said that initially, experimenting with this option was meant to check its utility in combat. However, they soon realized it could prove to be an intriguing feature for anything that had a “time component.”

The developers moved forward with this new feature based on what they learned from Fallen Order community feedback. They tried to incorporate more platform accessibility with Jedi Survivor. Additionally, players will also see subtitles, closed captions, visual adjustments, control customization, gameplay modifiers, and difficulty options.

In Jedi: Fallen Order, fans saw four difficulty modes: Jedi Knight, Jedi Master, Jedi Grand Master, and Story Mode but the developers have now added a new difficulty mode, Jedi Padawan.

It will present a challenge unlike Story Mode but will be less aggressive than Jedi Knight. Parry times will be generous but enemies will deal comparatively higher damage than what they deliver in Story Mode.

Currently, it’s not clear to what extent the Slow Mode will impact platforming or whether there would be any restrictions for using specific options in combat. Fans will soon find out about the latest advances when the game launches on April 28.
