Skyrim Kinect Support Now Available, DLC Info On The Way
UPDATE: Oh look – DLC alert!
Hey Skyrim players: have you been working on your shouts? That Kinect support that Bethesda promised in early April has officially arrived. Now, when you yell at your TV, something might actually happen.
The Bethesda blog says that the English Kinect support is now available on your 360, and that French, Italian, German, and Spanish versions are in the final testing stage and should be coming soon.
Here’s what you can expect to get with the Kinect update:
In addition to Dragon Shouts, the Kinect for Xbox 360 integration offers voice commands throughout the game including 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.
We were also promised a full list of voice commands, and you can now access that here.
While the Kinect support is fun and all, some Skyrim lovers have something else on their minds today. This tweet teases some sort of Skyrim DLC information for today. Let’s just say we’re closely watching Bethesda’s social channels this morning.
Be on the lookout for the first DLC info tomorrow
