Battlefield 4 to Include Kinect Support

Battlefield 4
EA/DICE

The Xbox One version of Battlefield 4 has been confirmed to include Kinect support. We hope this means that we can level entire buildings just by yelling at it.

According to Videogamer, DICE confirmed the Kinect integration in a recent interview. Those thinking that they’ll only see gimmicky features used by the Kinect can lay their fears to rest, since DICE general manager Karl Magnuss Troedsson said, “We have a pretty pragmatic view [on Kinect 2]. Instead of just trying to tick all the boxes of features you can do with new hardware, we look at what actually adds value [for] our players.”

He went on to say that Battlefield is a game about skill and requires tight input and precise controls. Because of this, full motion controls wouldn’t make very much sense. What would most likely happen is that we’ll be able to use the Kinect for voice commands or maybe even to access and navigate menus and shortcuts more easily.

Whatever the Kinect’s use will be for Battlefield 4, it’s yet to be announced. As soon as more info becomes available, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, hang tight and wait for the release of Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on Oct. 29. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow soon after.

What do you think we’ll use the Kinect for when playing Battlefield 4? Let us know in the comments.
