Lego 2K Drive is an open-world racing game made out of Lego. There are races, as you'd expect, but you can also freely explore each of the worlds, collect parts and upgrade your cars. It stands out for updating the popular Lego destruction and exploration found in games like Lego City Undercover and Lego Dimensions and creates a game that continues to grow over time.

NotesAccessibility Notes

There are no specific difficulty settings, but the game offers an option for Race Difficulty Assist that scales the challenge of races to be appropriate and engaging for any skill level. In addition, extensive gameplay options can aid in some of the controls, such as automatic switching between vehicle types and simply having to tap the button once to drift.

You can select between four different control schemes using both a keyboard and mouse and a controller, but can't fully remap buttons. You sometimes need to hold the accelerator and another button, such as jump. Rapidly pressing buttons is also required.

All main story dialogue is voice acted, but some dialogue for side quests and objectives is only in text. text throughout the game is high in contrast but can be quite small. You can adjust the background colour for subtitles.

There are good visual directional indicators for missions and open-world areas, although this is not present in the more linear races. Some objects which you need to locate for certain quests and missions can be quite small and occasionally low in contrast.

ReadingReading

We've documented 5 accessibility features for Reading in Lego 2K Drive which deal with how much reading or listening comprehension is required, how well the game provides visual and audible access to the text and whether subtitles and captions are a good fit for purpose.

Reading Level

How much reading is required to play the game's main path or story and how complex the language is. The presence of voiced characters doesn't reduce this requirement, as it's recorded as a separate datapoint.

Simple Minimal Reading: Minimal reading is required. The quantity and complexity of reading are at a level that a primary/elementary student (9-year-old) could understand.

Text Visibility

High Contrast Text: Text colour contrasts to the background or can be adjusted to be. The text in menus, instructions and other information is presented in high contrast with a solid background.

Subtitles

All Speech Subtitled (Or No Speech In Game): All spoken content has subtitles, or there is no speech in the game. This means there is no requirement to hear spoken dialogue or narrative to play the game.

Captions

Speaker Indicator: Textual captions indicate who is speaking (or there is only ever one person speaking). This can also be indicated visually in the game with character icons or placing text in speech bubbles next to the person speaking.

Voice Acted

Some Dialogue is Voice Acted: Some of the game dialogue and narrative is voice acted. This reduces the pressure on reading all the dialogue text, although not everything is provided audibly.

Visual Directional Cues: Additional in-game visual cues that signpost where to go next and how close you are to arriving. This can be with camera movement to focus on your destination or important items. It can use light, breadcrumb trails, in-world pointers to identify your mission's target location.

Head-Up Display

Adjust Head-Up Display: Resize and adjust the content of the head-up display. This enables it to be made more visible. It can also enable the removal of too much information that can be distracting or confusing.

Game Map: View a map of the game world during play, with the landscape, points of interest and missions highlighted throughout the entire game. This enables the orientation of the player and the world, confirming a direction of movement and the location of destinations or points of exploration.
