Death Stranding won’t strain your eyes anymore whenever you go to check your mail or read up on interviews.

An update for the game (version 1.07) went live on Friday, adding several quality of life improvements, the biggest being the option to increase the size of text.

The Odradek on Sam’s left shoulder is also visible to players at all times now when treading through BT territory. The cargo on his back turns transparent whenever the game detects that it’s blocking the view of the sonar-like device from the camera.

And finally, players can now dismantle non-enemy vehicles.

Kojima Productions’ star-powered, open-world social experiment released to divisive but for the most part positive critical reception. GAW’s own Robin G. even said it was “one of the most polarizing games I have ever played” in his review.

Death Stranding also had a heavy presence at The Game Awards Thursday night. The game took home the awards for best score and game direction, Mads Mikkelsen – who starred as Cliff – won best performance, Norman Reedus (Sam Bridges) presented the award for best action game, and CHVRCHES performed with lead singer Lauren Mayberry wearing an outfit designed by artist Yoji Shinkawa and director Hideo Kojima.

Check out a few screens of the text size change below (note that it has to be switched under the language settings at the title screen), along with video of the new Odradek visibility.
