Skyrim Kinect support coming tomorrow, Voice command list available

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Kinect update for Xbox 360 is releasing tomorrow, Bethesda announced.

Only the English Kinect update will be available at first, but the French, Italian, German, and Spanish versions are all in "final testing."  Bethesda will share those dates "as soon as we know them".

In the meantime, Bethesda has released a PDF of the full list of English Voice Commands.  There are over 200 voice commands available through using the Kinect.  It's important to note that you need to have the shout unlocked to the level that you want to use before the Kinect will allow you to do it, otherwise it will do nothing.  The Dragon Shouts are available in both the English language and Dragon language.

As we previously mentioned, the new Kinect integration spreads far beyond Dragon Shouts.  Other voice commands includes Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills).  You will also be able to quickly create and load saves during gameplay and access menus and inventories.  In addition, Skyrim 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.
