With Mass Effect 3’s release only a couple months away, BioWare held a private hands-on demonstration of the game’s Kinect support during the Consumer Electronics Show.
Mass Effect 3 uses the Kinect to allow players to interact with the game through vocal commands. This neatly avoids the potential difficulty of adapting a conventional third-person shooter to a format more suitable to the Kinect, while still capitalizing on the Kinect’s hardware. Players can issue commands to main character Commander Shepard or allied characters in combat sequences, interact with the environment, or select dialogue options by voice.
Mass Effect 3 for the Xbox 360 will support voice command in English (British, American, and Australian), French, Italian and German.
A trailer for Mass Effect 3‘s Kinect support has been released.
