Foxhole is a strategic battle, where you play with hundreds of others to manage not only the front lines of war but also the infrastructure behind your offensive. From your overhead view, you collaborate to devise strategies and build bases, railways, and factories to equip the players on the front lines in the days-long battles against the other team. It stands out for how it forces you to rely on your teammates to achieve long-term, large-scale victories that future players can capitalise upon in the ongoing persistent world.

Our accessibility examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Foxhole accessibility 7 months ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

You can change the sprint action from a hold to a toggle and vice versa, but there are still some instances where holding down a button is required.

Depending on what your role within the team is, the requirement for fast reactions will vary significantly, but in some roles, such as fighting on the front lines, you need to have fairly fast reactions and perform precise inputs under pressure.

Text is often quite small and low in contrast, and there's quite a lot of it, especially in menus and around players. Although there's no speech in the game per se, there is a voice chat between players that is often used to devise strategies (here there can be a language barrier problem), and there's no speech-to-text or text-to-speech function. There's also a text chat which displays any messages sent over the player's head as well as in the chat log.

The game has no clearly defined objectives or missions, instead relying on your team to assign roles and work together to formulate a strategy.

The game can often be low in contrast, and there is both motion blur and screen shake that can't be disabled, in addition to flashes from explosions.
