Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Accessibility — Menu Deep Dive

Ben Bayliss7 minute read

It’s time to look at Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands main menus BAYBAY as the excitable explosive-loving character would shout. There’s a fair number of menus available in Gearbox’s new spin-off title from the Borderlands universe, taking players to a dungeons and dragons setting. What’s more, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has an accessibility menu, however, what else does the game hold in store for available options?

It’s also worth remembering that the existence of an accessibility menu doesn’t mean that the game itself is accessible. Instead, this deep dive serves to show players what to expect from the menus in case there is anything they need or prefer to see.

All images and information displayed below are from the launch version on PS5 and could be subject to change.

Boot Menu

After clicking an awkward number of various terms and conditions agreement buttons and linking a Shift account —The game’s social account system for keys and gifts— there are first-boot options available. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands includes the usual graphical options but includes both subtitles and closed captions, which is a good start for accessibility.

Each choice comes with an explanation of the option being adjusted, and for closed captions, it’s noted that critical sounds are presented as subtitles.

  • Enable HDR
  • Brightness
  • Black Level
  • Graphics Preference
  • Subtitles
  • Closed Captions

Settings

The rest of the settings menus are available from the start menu and in-game and contain a number of features that players can adjust to make the experience their own.
