The settings allow to turn off blood but that option is for gameplay only meaning the cutscenes will show blood. There is no manual save option just checkpoints that trigger an autosave. There are settings to adjust 3D Strength and Stereoscopy options (Off, Inficolor, Side by Side, and Top Bottom).
When in combat only the enemy you are focused on will be highlighted and glowing. Other enemies will have a small health bar that flashes when that enemy is going to attack. Enemies not in combat will have an icon indicating if they see you.
Objects that can be interacted with will be highlighted. Similarly, the path for some missions will have distinct indicators of where to go in the game world and on the minimap. There is no distinct indicator of what world elements can be traversed while free running.

We've documented 5 accessibility features for Reading in Assassin's Creed Revelations 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.
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.
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.
Some Speech Subtitled: Some spoken content has subtitles. This reduces the pressure on interpreting all the spoken content, although not everything is captured textually.
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.
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.
