EAAA is available for free access to any technology patent

EA is enforcing five accessibility-related technology rights – including the ping system for Apex Legends – for free to use by anyone, even its competitors.

In a statement issued today, the publisher said it was making a “patent pledge” to anyone who wanted to exercise their intellectual property indefinitely, as well as anyone who would develop available technologies in the future.

Effectively, this means that any of these five proprietary rights can be exercised by other developers, competitors, or others without the risk of being sued by EA.

Three other proprietary rights are related to visual access and include technology that detects and adjusts colors, brightness, and contrast in the game to improve visibility. This technology is now included in the Madden NFL and FIFA Frances.

Fifth patent is not currently used in any EA games, but it is related to personal audio technology to help players with hearing loss. With it, players can create or improve music based on their preferences.

In addition to these, EA is an open-source code for digital content, access to color, brightness, and contrast. This code is being made available on GitHub.

In recent years, the gaming industry has been pushing for more accessible technology, features, games, and hardware, especially as the Xbox unveiled its active controller several years ago and continues to push for access to the hardware and software on platforms. Recently, the AbleGamers Initiative raised $ 1 million to support a game that is accessible to all.
