With the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Early Access Beta ongoing, players wonder if this new entry in the franchise will include better accessibility options. Though the beta isn’t entirely indicative of the finished product, it is at least some kind of eye into what players can expect come full release on October 28. Today, we’ll answer whether or not Modern Warfare 2 has accessibility options!

Does Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Have Accessibility Options?

So, while I would have loved to see a deep dedication to accessibility options, similar to the likes of The Last of Us: Part II or even as basic as Fortnite’s on-screen sound identifiers, Modern Warfare 2 is looking as basic as it gets in terms of what is going to be offered to players accessibility-wise.

It’s a shame really, as other companies have come very far, offering players technology that has totally revolutionized accessibility for all gamers. And with a franchise as huge and as chock-full of money as the Call of Duty franchise is, you’d think that the developers would be able to at least introduce some features borrowed from other titles.

Though, that’s not to say that there aren’t any accessibility options at all in this title. It’s just that most of them are pretty basic, with nothing of notoriety offered whatsoever. We’ve gone ahead and taken a good look at all of the settings in the Modern Warfare 2 Beta and have laid out all of the accessibility options below that may help gamers that need them.
