When The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim gets its next free title update, slated for release later in April, 2012, it will add a major new feature: voice control for Kinect owners.
See the voice control in action in the new video on our Skyrim page!
Now, you can actually activate the Dragonborn’s shout powers using your voice. Now, when you shout “Fus Ro DAH!” at the screen, it will actually work! Well, in the game, at least. Similarly, “Yo Toor Shur” will unleash your fire breath, and all your other favorite shouts will work as well.
You can also issue commands to companions like Lydia, such as “Ally, attack” and “Ally, follow.” And if you’re taking advantage of your companion’s carrying capacity to avoid overencumbrance, you can say “Ally, trade” and then use voice control to select the items to give or take.
You can even use your voice to change item hotkeys, selecting a hotkey in the menu and saying “Assign axe,” for instance. Best of all, you can use voice commands to change equipment without diving into the menus, saying “Equip fire spell” or “Equip axe and shield.”
Launch the map with a voice command and just say the name of the town or location to zoom on it, which is really handy when you’ve forgotten exactly where a town is on the map. There are more than 200 voice commands in all, including the ever-useful “Quick save” and “Quick load.”
Bethesda Game Studios also says it’s hard at work creating the first set of game add-ons, which will be exclusive to the Xbox 360, adding new quests, locations, features, and more to the world of Skyrim.
great a bunch of grown men and teenagers shouting at a t.v in a language no one understands.
i read it so i would know not because i care
this looks epic now im going to buy the kinect
This is actually looking pretty neat. I would proudly shout in dragon tongue for all my family and college neighbors to hear. Problem no dragon speaking folk?
Watched the video. Only useful features: Quick saving/loading, "hotkey" assignments, and the "Ally trade" command. The slow-mo arrow shot was a really nice feature. And hey, if you've ever wanted to actually be able to memorize the various shouts, there you go. I hope you'd be able to just say the name of it, though so you don't have to remember. Like "Unrelenting Force 2" for Fus Ro...
THAT'S FREAKEN AWESOME!!!!!!!!...but i don't have the game
Awesome! This was perfect for Mass Effect cant wait. For all the people with negative comments obviously doesn't own a Kinect and that's why they're hating.
It's not a troll. They already have videos about on youtube.
Interesting..... How do I make it work?
I think this is a cool idea, but I don't like the kinect or want one.......so how about all the DLC you guys have been talking about??????? Let's get some more gameplay, PLEASE!!!!!
Yes Cant wait!!
This is going to be EPIC!!! I LOVE XBOX and the KINECT!!!
I knew I'd use that Kinect eventually.
