Ah, Skyrim… You may have given over countless hours of your life to the fifth Elder Scrolls title already, but Bethesda reckons it could still stand to be a little bit more engrossing. And how do you manage that? Simple: add Kinect support.
An update due to land this month will bring Kinect powers to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with over 200 separate voice commands. It’s unclear whether you’ll be able to yell “Fus ro dah!” at your TV with the update, but we do know that your squeals will help you out with ally commands, spells, equipping weapons and items, as well as navigating the map.
Weirdly, the Kinect support is voice only, meaning you won’t be killing any mud crabs with any sort of physical sword swiping action. Still, Kinect support for voice commands is a nice addition for those who don’t already feel like they’re being quite geeky enough in silence.
