VIDEO: Mass Effect 3 gets Kinect support, demoed
EA has demoed Mass Effect 3 due out in March 2012, with the Kinect accessory at Microsoft’s press conference at E3 in LA.
Although Kinect isn’t actually needed for the game, those that do have the motion sensory bolt-on for their Xbox 360 console will be able to bark orders at the computer, saving them pressing the controller.
Demo guys on stage at the presser showed how using the voice recognition capabilities of the device you'll not only be able to tell what you want your character to do in game, but also instruct others to do stuff as well, like move forward on a position or take out a specific target.
“With Mass Effect 3, we are delivering blockbuster action and heart-wrenching emotion on a scale that far exceeds anything we’ve ever done before,” said Casey Hudson, executive producer of the Mass Effect series. “This is an all-out galactic war and how you choose to lead and play will ultimately determine how - and if - you can save the galaxy.”
Bioware also unveiled the Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector’s Edition, a special edition of the game featuring exclusive bonus content and unlockable items including in-game appearance packs, a Dark Horse Comic Book, a hardcover art book, an exclusive extended soundtrack, exclusive lithograph and an exclusive N7 patch.
