1 min read


DICE confirmed a while back that Battlefield 4 would be tailored to each platforms strengths, and as such would include some sort of Kinect functionality. They’ve now detailed  how Kinect  and companion devices loaded with Smartlgass will be used in the Xbox One version of the game.

“Through SmartGlass, Xbox players will be able to view the overhead map during multiplayer matches and take advantage of the second screen Also, with Kinect, we’re looking into features that enhance the controls including peeking and leaning and tracking head movement as well as incorporating voice commands,” they said via Xbox Wire.

I am so looking forward to turning my head to speak to one of my kids while I’m playing, and getting shot in the face by a sniper because Kinect though I was trying to peek around a corner.

No mention of it on Xbox Wire, quite obviously, but it’s likely you’ll be able to perform similar motions using the PS4’s touch pad, or even using its own camera peripheral.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
