'Skyrim' Kinect voice control update coming today, Bethesda releases list of commands


Bethesda has announced that the update with Kinect-powered voice control for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will go live today. If you can't quite wait before the update hits, though, you can get some practice in ahead of time — the developer has prepared a PDF list of commands that you'll be able to shout into your sensor. As Polygon found out earlier this month, you can bellow commands in either English or dragon tongue, though the former option unsurprisingly proved more reliable. Meanwhile, the French, German, Italian, and Spanish versions of the update are all in final testing and will follow at a later date. The update is only for the Xbox 360 version of the game, but PC players can always use the unofficial mod we saw back in December that allows for both voice and motion control.
