E3 2011: Mass Effect 3 Will Support Kinect

As rumored, Mass Effect 3, the final chapter in the Mass Effect trilogy will support Kinect. But unlike most Kinect games, you won’t be flailing around the living room looking all crazy and stuff. Kinect support in Mass Effect 3 will be limited to voice commands which means as Commander Shepard you’ll be able to choose a dialogue vocally.

During combat, you’ll also be able to issue voice commands to your squad using Kinect. This is actually one of the better uses of Kinect I’ve seen, so you retain the precision of the controller but make it a tad more immersive by allowing players to control certain aspects of the game using voice commands.

UPDATE: At their E3 press conference EA also announced the release date for Mass Effect 3. The game will release for the Xbox360, PS3 and PC by the 6th of March 2012.
