A Motion Sick Peon’s Magical Elixir is coming to World of Warcraft as an accessibility feature for two dungeon types in an upcoming 9.2.5 update.
An upcoming World of Warcraft 9.2.5 update will feature an elixir for accessibility named the Motion Sick Peon’s Magical Elixir which was announced on Twitter. This potion will be obtainable in the Grimrail Depot and the Maw of Souls dungeons and it looks to hide the moving environment pieces that are present within those areas to combat motion sickness some players may experience.
It looks as if more information surrounding this new elixir will be available closer to the launch of the update. During the Grimrail Depot and Maw of Souls dungeons, players can be faced with a number of moving environments, from background and foreground elements to even the elements surrounding their characters directly.
Earlier this month, World of Warcraft got a 9.2 update that introduced the ability to bind actions to a mouse click and multiple cursor sizes. It also updated controller support and improved the text-to-speech feature that was added last year.
Blizzard has been running a lot of accessibility improvements over the last year to its titles. Diablo 2: Resurrected saw accessibility added to the remake of a classic, taking learnings from a technical alpha prior to launch. The studio also saw an audio-described trailer for its latest Hearthstone update following a mod that makes the game accessible to those who use screen readers.
Of course, Activision Blizzard is still involved in lawsuits that surfaced last year, and yesterday it was reported the studio settled one of the lawsuits for $18m which comes after Xbox announced that it would be acquiring the studio for $68.7 billion earlier this year.
