In this GDC 2020 virtual talk, Gearbox Software's Andre Bair discusses how accessibility features were embedded into the design of Borderlands 3 at an early stage in development.
Speaking about features like subtitles, closed captions, loot beams, and sound effects, Bair offered practical tips and explained what worked well, what didn't, and why.
It was a great talk that helped shed light how game makers can create more accessible games, and now you can watch it completely free on the official GDC YouTube channel!
