One of the many new accessibility choices released for Spider-Man 2 in a recent update on the PlayStation website is the ability to reduce the game’s speed to thirty percent of its normal rate.

The website outlines:

Building on the accessibility enhancements made in prior releases, these features make it possible for more players with a wider range of skills to enjoy playing the game:

  • Audio: screen reader support will read aloud all on-screen text in menus.
    Captions: on-screen captions and audio descriptions are available for cinematic scenes.
  • Gameplay: you can slow the action to 70%, 50%, or 30% of the full speed, switching back to regular speed at any time.
