SKYRIM Receiving a Free Kinect Support Upgrade

Bethesda has announced that Kinect support is coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim later this month for free – yes, FREE!

Available a title update, Skyrim Kinect Support will feature more than 200 Voice Commands… including the game’s dragon shouts, Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands, and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills). With Voice Commands you can quickly create and load saves during gameplay to access menus and inventories.

Skyrim’s Kinect Support also adds new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value.
