Like it or not, Kinect is part of the Xbox One experience and nothing could be more true for Battlefield 4. Though this implementation hasn’t been divulged but DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson says that DICE has “a pretty pragmatic view” on Kinect and will emphasis on skill – so motion controls are out.
“You need to have very precise control over what’s going on, and trying to do something like that with motion control input does not make sense – not if you want to keep the same kind of formula of the game as we [have] now. You’d need to build a different kind of shooter,” Troedsson said in the latest issue of Game Informer. “But there are other places where it will make sense, and we are going to use it for other things in the game, but we haven’t announced exactly what.” Voice commands? That seems like the obvious choice, though it’s purely speculation at this point.”
Battlefield 4 uses the Frostbite 3 engine and is set to launch on October 29. Battlefield 4 will be available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
