Gaming News: Skyrim Gets Kinect Features

Bethesda have today announced the introduction of Kinect features for their hit RPG Skyrim – including voice commands for Dragon Shouts. 

Available for free as a title update slated for release this month, Skyrim’s Kinect for Xbox 360 Support will “add a new dimension to gameplay”, with more than 200 voice commands for Dragon Shouts, Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands, and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills). Voice commands will also allow you to quickly create and load saves during gameplay and access menus and inventories. The update also adds new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value.

      Ha. Completely legit I’m afraid Dan! Though to be fair, it is completely free, and I actually think the ‘voice command’ feature is one of the areas where Kinect makes most sense at the moment. That said, it remains to be seen how effective ‘FOS DO RAH-ING’ will be vocally, as opposed to just pressing the shoulder button.
