Amongst those things mentioned in the video are the ability top control the difficulty at a macro level, including enemy speed and ammo for yourself, the ability to see enemies through walls as large red silhouettes, sound cues (which are very important in this game) are now represented on screen with a giant skull and a direction and most importantly FULL controller button mapping is now available too.

Oh, and did we mention this is an entirely free update?

We here at Level 2 work a lot with Ablegamers.org in trying to make it so every gamer, regardless of disability can enjoy the escapism and thrills that games offer, however VR gets largely ignored when that  conversation comes up – with the exception of the little ASL knowing mouse.

So let this be a lesson to those in the VR industry, to truly be the future of gaming, you have to cater to all gamers, everywhere – #Soeveryonecangame
