Skyrim gets official Kinect integration
Do Fus Ro Dah for real.
Bethesda has announced Kinect support for its RPG, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The Kinect update is slated to roll out this month and will feature more than 200 voice commands, including, yes, even the dragon shouts. Fus Ro Dah just got real.
Players will fully be able to control the game with their voice, such as hotkey equipping, issue follower commands, accessing menus, and even saving and loading game files. Kinect support will also add new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight and value. Why isn’t this a normal mouse-supported feature is beyond us.
Bethesda has published a demonstration video of the Kinect support. Full list of voice commands will be released shortly.
