Battlefield 4 Uses Xbox One Kinect For Lean & Voice Control
According to Polygon, the lean/peek system was on full display at a recent Xbox showcase event. Instead of mapping leaning to a button, players can lean for the Kinect sensor, and the movement will trigger the in-game animation. Leaning is new to the Battlefield franchise, including the PC version of the game. Where Xbox One players can use the Kinect to lean, PC players need only walk to a corner or piece of cover, and the animation is triggered by ironsighting/scoping. You will lean out left or right, or you can peek out over half-height cover from the crouch position.
Voice commands will be part of the Battlefield 4 Xbox One experience as well, allowing players to request ammo or a medic by speaking instead of using the Comma Rose.
Not a big fan of the Kinect? Rest easy, as everything the Kinect helps you do in-game can be done via the controller, too. It’s an optional control method, through and through.
