Dragon Age: Inquisition For Xbox Likely To Use Voice Commands
The XBox versions of Dragon Age: Inquisition will most likely allow a player to use the Kinect for voice commands in game.
“We’re expecting that Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions will ship with a Kinect-enabled voice command feature, just like Mass Effect 3 did,” Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw stated in an interview in the Official XBox Magazine.
In Mass Effect 3 a large assortment of basic commands were available to you such as “Bypass” to initiate a bypass on a keypad or call out a squad member such as “Garrus” to select them. Laidlaw didn’t get into details about what commands could be used and how complex they may be. Something else that went unmentioned is how or if they plan on using motion recognition through the Kinect.
Also present at the interview was producer Cameron Lee who hinted at plans for SmartGlass support. “It needs to make sense, of course,” Lee pointed out. “But we want Inquisition to be an experience you can take with you everywhere – to work, the commute home, the living room, bed.” It will certainly be interesting to see how that plan unfolds.
Dragon Age: Inquisition has already been delayed a year, but as of now expect it to launch this Fall on the XBox One, XBox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and PC.
