The lights are on
Update: The update is now available to download for Xbox 360 Kinect. It's an automatic update that's 34 MB in size.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Xbox 360 owners with Kinect can soon begin dragon shouting their way to victory.
The update for Kinect support with English voice commands goes live tomorrow, May 1. Bethesda says French, Italian, German, and Spanish versions are all in final testing and dates for those versions will be revealed later.
Bethesda also posted a list of all the Kinect voice commands, which you can read here (PDF).
Regarding the first piece of download content for the game, Bethesda also teased that new information will be revealed tomorrow.
Now all I need is a Kinect...
I wish they would fix some of the bugs as well... currently the companions quest line is glitched because of a fragment of Wuuthrad is MIA.
I'm going to play this in the summertime. I'm not even finished the game and it sounds GREAT!!!
yes! Ice sneeze!
I wish there was some way to incorporate this with just a regular mic. The time-saving features in this update are awesome, but I don't want to actually buy a Kinect at this time.
The one thing that Kinect can't seem to "connect" is the formula of fun to the gamer.
Is this the actual *** update that adds the ability to kill your "current" wife and marry Lydia?
this will be helpfull with the hotkey stuff. The shouts will be fun for a minute, but it's really all about the extra stuff.
Tried the Kinect functions for the first time today. Walked in to the Companions headquarters to join. Was talking to their head guy and during the course of the conversation he said the word "fire". My character immediately cut loose with a fire shout that half incinerated him and set everybody in the vicinity up in arms to attack me. Kinect functions were disabled immediately thereafter.
What I don't get is why it's for Kinect. Why not have Skyrim support voice commands from a mic? That would also allow the update to be available to PS3 users.
The updatability of this game is amazing. Future updates will include an in-game terminal where all your real-world banking can be done.
