Kinect voice commands coming to Skyrim - yes, including Dragon Shouts

Anyone who's played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has dreamed of actually shouting someone off of a cliff, right? Well, the Xbox version of the game will support more than 200 voice commands by the end of this month.

Anyone who's played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has dreamed of actually shouting someone off a cliff, right? Well, the Xbox version of the game will support more than 200 voice commands by the end of this month.

Bethesda plans to release a free title update that will allow gamers to enable Kinect support for Skyrim, thus enabling them to 'FUS RO DAH!' their in-game enemies by yelling at their TVs.

Aside from dragon shouts, players will also be able to use their voice for hotkey equips, follower commands, using the menus, and quickly saving and loading their games.

Kinect also adds new functionality, the company said, like "special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value".

Bethesda also said the company had been hard at work on Xbox 360-exclusive content for Skyrim. The exclusive content will "add new quests, locations, features, and much more" to the game, the company said.

To see the Kinect integration for yourself, check out the video on the Elder Scrolls website.
