Dead Space 3 gets Kinect voice controls on Xbox

Shout commands at your game in both single-player and co-op modes

Visceral Games has today confirmed Kinect voice controls for the Xbox 360 version of Dead Space 3.


According to the developer, Kinect voice will allow gamers to shout simple commands at the game such as "Find partner", "Fire stasis", or "Attack Enemy".

These commands work not just in single-player mode but also in co-op with another player, and will apparently "make it easier for co-op partners to give each other health or ammo, find objectives, revive one another and more", says Visceral.

"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 the game's exec producer and Visceral VP Steve Papoutsis.
"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."

Earlier today a new Dead Space 3 trailer showed off new gameplay for both the single player and co-op modes.

EA has confirmed a Dead Space 3 release date of February 5, 2013 in North America and February 8, 2013 in Europe.
