Kinect support coming to Skyrim, allows voice commands

Brought to you by Destructoid:

Bethesda has announced that Kinect support is coming to the Xbox 360 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and will include voice recognition to let you pull off the Dragon Shouts with your own vocal abilities. 

"In addition to Dragon Shouts, the Kinect for Xbox 360 integration offers voice commands throughout the game including Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands, and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills)," revealed the publisher. "With Voice Commands, quickly create and load saves during gameplay and access menus and inventories. Skyrim’s Kinect for Xbox 360 Support also adds new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value."

To PC modders, such voice commands will be nothing new, but at least it gives the Kinect something to do. Voice support will arrive as a free update this month. Here's hoping Bethesda won't sue us for screaming "Fus Ro Dah," though!
