Apex legends developer willing and able to implement accessibility features.

Forum
iOS & iPadOS Gaming

The developer of Apex legends, electronic arts, has added accessibility features to their game which is coming to Ios soon. They have one feature which allows text in the chat to be converted to voice. This feature is obviously for people who cannot see the text.
You maybe asking, what is apex legends?
Apex legends is a battle royale type game, where you are trying to be the last person standing. The difference is, you play as heroes and you also have teammates. There is no solo mode. In my opinion, this can be easily made accessible. When you first start the game, there should be an option where you can turn on a self voicing mode. This would be used to start a new game, and even sign in with your account if you want to.
Then, before the game starts, there should be a voice that says that people with vision impairments should play with headphones on. The headphones would be used to here where other players are.
Since killing your teammates is not possible, there should be no problems there. There should be your standard controls, swiping up to head straight, swiping down to go backwards, and so on. These gestures would be used to navigate. For those, they could do something similar to what a blind legend did. Where you hold the gestures to continue walking in that direction.
I’ve already contacted the developer about this, and they said that they could do it! Now I know what you might be thinking, the game relies on graphics! How are you going to be able to play without seeing it? The answer is the game does not rely on graphics completely.
If you have any more ideas on how Apex legends could be made even more accessible, please post them here.

I hope we can use the following gestures :
1. one finger swipe up, down, left , right and hold on screen to walk. and pressing it harder to run.

2. two finger double taps or single tap to change wepons.

3. one finger tapping to fire
4. shake your device is jump...

hope some of us would have more great comments

2. How to land if i am the jump master?
I don’T know about any other elements of a game that will be hard for people who are visually impaired to play.

I am sorry for this post. Researching the information about that link I found on YouTube was fake. And the internet is hard to Believe sometime. I really apologize to all of you. I Think YouTube needs to fix their advertisement algorithm and take the videos down. they are miss leading. I really believe in that link because this game was very willing enough to add accessibility.

Is there an alternative to downloading this rather than having to go through a method that doesn't always work? I ran every single app it offed for at least 45 seconds, and nothing unlocked when I switched to Safari. It unlocked for the 2 offers, but then it tells me I need to get an additional one. Like the heck? There's TestFlight, that would be much more easier.

At long last, EA and Respawn Entertainment have officially announced a mobile version of Apex Legends. As you might expect, Apex Legends Mobile is a battle royale game designed specifically for touchscreens. There will be streamlined controls and, according to Apex game director Chad Grenier, "thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone."
Like PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile and other games in those franchises, this is entirely separate from Apex Legends. So, don't expect to play with people on consoles or PC.
Apex Legends MobileEA/Respawn Entertainment
The first regional beta tests take place later this month on Android in India and the Philippines with a few thousand players. Respawn will test Apex Legends Mobile in other regions before a broader rollout on Android and iOS.
Like the original game, Apex Legends Mobile will be free-to-play with microtransactions and battle passes for cosmetic items, some of which you won't find in the PC and console versions. The Apex Legends Mobile team is collaborating with the Apex Legends crew and other partners as it develops the game.
Apex Legends MobileEA/Respawn Entertainment
A mobile version of Apex Legends has been in the works for some time. EA confirmed it was working on the game in early 2020, partly with a view toward cracking the Chinese mobile market. Still, it shouldn't be too long until you can get a fix of Apex Legends just about anywhere (at least without tethering a Nintendo Switch to your phone's data connection).
Meanwhile, Respawn has offered the first look at what it calls one of the biggest updates yet for Apex Legends. A new trailer gives a peek at what appears to be the next character to join the roster, Valkyrie, who could be arriving alongside season nine on May 4th.

anyone going to have a test when the beta's come out?

Submitted by Juliantheaudiogamer on Thursday, April 29, 2021

Can someone explain how this game does not rely heavily on graphics (maps, etc.)? Because don't they have buildings on that map too where you can also go onto the rooftops? I mean, I could imagine the PC version of something like this becoming accessible, but I have doubts about the mobile version. We'll just have to wait and see.
