Train2Game news: League of Legends patch to help colour blind players

Train2Game students may know someone who is colour blind, or indeed, may even colour blind themselves.

Unfortunately, most developers don’t cater for the one in 12 men and one in 100 women who suffer from the condition, meaning that those with colour vision deficiency may struggle to enjoy playing video games.

Fortunately, League of Legends developer Riot Games are set to include a colour blind patch as part of their next update, which will allow those affected by red-green colour blindness to better-distinguish between friendly an enemy health bars during gameplay.  The news was revealed on the League of Legends website.

Train2Game students should be able to see the difference between what League of Legends currently looks like to colour blind players in the image below, with the image at the top of this post of how it’ll look when the update comes.

League of Legends has over 11 million players, so statistically, a large portion of them will benefit from this patch.

Riot Games aren’t the only developer to include options to help colour blind people, with the Train2Game Blog previously reporting that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be “colour blind friendly”

So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on League of Legends colour blind patch. Should more developers take the condition into account? Is it something you’d consider?
