Bethesda has just announced that a free title update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released later this month, that will add Kinect support for the Xbox 360 version of the game. Kinect integration will add more than 200 voice commands to the game.
With Kinect’s voice recognition capabilities, players will be able to use hotkey equipping, follower commands, load and create quick saves, access menus and inventories, and most importantly, use dragon shouts. Kinect support will also add special map functions, more hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, value, and weight. Unfortunately, it seems that these new voice commands will be restricted to the Kinect, meaning you won’t be able to use a headset to dragon shout your way through the game.
