Skyrim proved that people like shouting at dragons, now you'll be able to use the Xbox One's Kinect to give out commands in BioWare's upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition.

In an interview with the game's creative director Mike Laidlaw in the Official Xbox Magazine, he confirmed that the game will use Kinect voice commands. Laidlaw said, "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."

He also said that SmartGlass features that "make sense" are being considered, commenting, "We want Inquisition to be an experience you can take with you everywhere - to work, the commute home, the living room, bed."

Our Take:
I'm not a huge proponent of Kinect, but I already have one hooked up and I wouldn't mind having some actual in-game uses for it. However, I assume that BioWare has the good sense to make these features optional. What do you think? Do you want Kinect in Dragon Age? Did you like the voice commands in Mass Effect 3?
