Skyrim to get Kinect Controls
Skyrim to add Kinect controls later this month
Bethesda has just sent our a mass email stating that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be getting an update to add Kinect controls. Obviously this is only coming to the Xbox 360 version of the game, and the update will be coming sometime in April.
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.
A full list of commands will be coming sometime soon.
