World of Warcraft to Receive Color-Blind Support in Patch 6.1

World of Warcraft Patch v.6.1 is going to bring support for color-blind people, Blizzard has announced in a detailed blogpost.

Last week, the developer announced a host of visual enhancements including HBAO+ and a S.E.L.F.I.E. camera and now has added enhanced options for people suffering from the said disorder.

Players will find “Enable UI Colorblind Mode” under the new Accessibility Interface Option where they will be able to adjust color-blind filters for protanopia, deuteranopia, and tritanopia.

Although these filters will be predefined by Blizzard, players will have the freedom to further tweak their settings using a number of sliders.

At Battle.Net, Blizzard wrote that with UI Colorblind Mode enabled, players with the disorder will be able to better distinguish characters and in-game texts:

With ‘UI Colorblind Mode’ enabled, the game will add the words “Rare” and “Epic” to the tooltips for those items. For players who find it difficult to discern between friendly, neutral, or hostile targets, additional indication text in the tooltip will now appear when you move your mouse cursor over other characters.

Although there are not many people suffering from the said disorder, this is still a nice addition made by the developer and will definitely help some players enjoy the game from a much better perspective. Thoughts?
