The 1.09 FIFA 18 update includes some additional accessibility settings. Some of the options can work alongside FIFA’s accessible gameplay controls, such as if someone is using only one joystick and two buttons to play using Two Button controls, whilst others can aid those playing using a mouse (perhaps with limited access to the keyboard keys). For instance, to remove the need to use the Right Stick within some menus, allowing for navigation using the Left Stick only. This can help those who play only using the Left Stick, to access menus using the Left Stick too. Accessibility Option 1: Remap Right Stick (PC, PlayStation 4 & Xbox One) Some tabs have multiple options you can select by scrolling with the Right Stick. To access these options using just the Left Stick, choose to ‘Remap Right Stick. Now these can be accessed just using the Left Stick (and arrow keys on PC). Accessibility Option 2: Remap Bumpers/Triggers (PC, PlayStation 4 & Xbox One). Some menus also require the triggers or bumpers to scroll through them. By choosing Remap Bumpers/Triggers, you can use the left stick again to do this instead (and arrow keys on PC). This can be used in the Game Settings and Customise Controls menus. Accessibility Option 3: Larger Clickable Targets (PC) On the PC, there are also some options which could help with mouse access. Selecting Larger Clickable Targets, makes the circular icons on tabs used to access more options, bigger. Accessibility Option 4: On-Screen Pause (PC) There is also an option to add an On-Screen Pause button at the top during gameplay. With this on, you can use the mouse cursor to pause the game, instead of the Esc key. Accessibility Option 5: Subtitles (PC, PlayStation 4 & Xbox One) From the Accessibility Settings you can also turn on subtitles for The Journey.
The FIFA 18 1.09 update has some additional accessibility features which could enable more independent play. This video takes you through these options on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Some of the options we use alongside FIFA’s accessible gameplay controls, such as if someone is using only one joystick and two buttons to play using ”Two button” controls, whilst others can aid those playing using a Mouse (perhaps with limited access to the keyboard keys).
