    Skyrim Adds Kinect Support

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Xbox 360 will receive a free optional title update from developer Bethesda in “the week of April 23″ that adds support for Kinect!

    It’s been announced the update will introduce over 200 Voice Commands, including:

    • Dragon Shouts,
    • Hotkey Equipping,
    • Follower Commands,
    • Quick Save and Load,
    • Access the Map and Quick Traveling,
    • and all Menus like My Items (including sorting them by weight/value/etc).

    We’ll be getting the full list of voice commands before the title update goes live for the popular Action-RPG.
    Update: Here’s the Skyrim Voice Commands List.

    The five supported languages are:

    • English,
    • Italian,
    • Spanish,
    • German,
    • and French.

    As to why Motion Control wasn’t added to Skyrim using Kinect, Bethesda’s VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines explained that the game wasn’t designed with that in mind.

    To quote him from a CNN interview: “Doing combat and swinging your sword and all that stuff without a controller would dramatically change the game. We’re trying to enhance the experience as we designed it with some additional functionality.”

    Watch The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim’s Kinect intergration trailer.

    I’m not sure why they wouldn’t add this support to PC’s & PS3′s with a microphone as well (not to mention Kinect for Windows). But I suppose it’s not surprising, considering the first Skyrim DLC will be a timed Xbox 360-exclusive. This may simply be part of the same deal with Microsoft.

    Are you ready to shout Skyrim commands at your TV?
