Dead Space 3 Features Voice Commands on Kinect

Posted on December 13, 2012 at 11:18 am by Justin Cavender


EA and Visceral Games announced today Dead Space 3 will feature voice commands exclusively for the Kinect on the Xbox 360. Earlier this year we told you Dead Space 3 will feature a co-op mode allowing you and a friend to tackle the horrors of space together. Simply shout out commands to give each other health or ammo, find objectives, revive one another, and fight enemies.

“The voice commands in Dead Space 3 give players a unique way to take down the terror, whether they choose to face the Necromorphs alone in single-player, or alongside a friend with drop-in / drop-out co-op,” said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer on Dead Space 3 and VP, General Manager of Visceral Games. “Dead Space 3 delivers the action-horror experience our fans have come to know and love. And with the ability to survive the adventure alone, with a friend, or with Kinect, we’re excited about extending the spine-tingling Dead Space experience to a whole new audience of players.”

So what do you guys think? Are you planning on picking this beast up for 360 so you can shout your way to victory? I wonder if Kinect will understand me after I stuff a couple Oreos in my mouth? We would love to hear your thoughts on Kinect and the future of voice commands in gaming.

Dead Space 3 will be available on February 5, 2013 in North America and February 8, 2013 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the PC.
