Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Accessibility — Menu Deep Dive

Ben Bayliss7 minute read

There’s a lot to look at in terms of settings in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, especially in terms of accessibility. If you’ve given our accessibility review a read, you’ll probably also be interested in knowing what exactly to expect from the settings menus, and that’s where our menu deep dive comes in. As an added bonus, the Warner Bros. Games support website has the accessibility menu listed.

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 PC and could be subject to change.

First Launch

When you first boot the game, you’re first introduced to a seizure warning, which is often common to see, but Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga seems to be more prominent, being unskippable and clear.

Following that, players are given the choice to view accessibility options or skip straight to the main menu. What players are presented with is the full accessibility offerings, which we’ll list next.

Settings

From here, players can remap bindings for gameplay features such as attacks or opening specific in-game menu sections. There are also color-coded elements to help differentiate different types of layered inputs. So you’ll have general jumping marked as white, Jump attack marked as red, and ship control marked as orange, for example.

Audio Options

There are a number of sliders here, and the subtitles section is nicely tucked into this area and comes with a preview of the text size. This preview is especially helpful to allow players to know what to expect from the size before they jump in.
