Skyrim - Coming to Kinect
Bethsoft has announced Kinect control is coming to Skyrim for the X360 - hopefully this isn't the only "big announcement" for April that Pete Hines recently refered to. The presser:
We’re pleased to announce that Kinect™ for Xbox 360® support is coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Available for free as a title update slated for release this month, Skyrim Kinect for Xbox 360 Support will feature more than 200 Voice Commands.
Adding a new dimension to Skyrim’s gameplay, the Kinect for Xbox 360 integration offers Voice Commands throughout the game including Dragon Shouts, Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands, and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills). With Voice Commands, quickly create and load saves during gameplay and access menus and inventories. Skyrim’s Kinect for Xbox 360 Support also adds new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value.
For a look at some of the included Voice Commands, we have posted a video here www.elderscrolls.com and have made it available from the download link or FTP below. A full list of Voice Commands will be revealed in the coming weeks.
