Kinect commands isn't a strange term when talking about BioWare, with their third title in the Mass Effect series utilising the Xbox 360 voice commands to further enhance (or hinder in some circumstances) the game, so it doesn't come as a surprise to hear that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be utilising said commands.

"We're expecting that Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions will ship with a Kinect-enabled voice command feature, just like Mass Effect 3 did," creative director Mike Laidlaw told Total Xbox. It isn't clear exactly how these voice commands will actually work, and whether it will be simple commands like opening up your inventory or full blown tactical input where you'll yell at your screen telling Varric to stop moving.

SmartGlass support may also be a possibility according to producer Cameron Lee. "It needs to make sense of course," said Lee, "but we want Inquisition to be an experience you can take with you everywhere - to work, the commute home, the living room, bed."

What are your thoughts on voice commands? Enjoy using them with your Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below on what you think about the possibilities this tech could open up for a game like Dragon Age.

I'll just be happy if they can deliver a good game...

But I doubt it. RIP Dragon Age games after Origins.
