Skyrim bags over 200 Kinect voice commands
Microsoft Kinect support is heading to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The popular RPG will benefit from over 200 voice commands letting players cast spells, cycle through inventory and bark the infamous Dragon Shouts. Read on for the full details on this very vocal update.
With Xbox 360 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim players will be able to hotkey commands by telling the game what items to equip. Meanwhile other other updates will see the ability better navigate menus, magic items, skills and maps. In the map mode simply saying the name of a town or location will transport the player there.
Using voice commands players will also be able to quick save and quick load new games at any time. To show the commands off, developer Bethesda has released a video showing off a handful of them to players: including the infamous “fus ro dah”. You can see that here. A full list of voice commands will be revealed in the coming weeks, says Bethesda. Meanwhile the studio is planned more game add-ons post release that will be exclusive to Xbox 360. These will include “new quests, locations, features, and much more” Bethesda reveals, so watch out for those details once they arrive.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was one of 2011’s best games. Will Kinect integration be enough to encourage a revisit? Those Dragon Shouts do sound tempting.
