Muzyka: Kinect to ‘personalise’ and ‘customise’ Mass Effect experience

Wednesday, 8th June 2011 12:40 GMT By Brenna Hillier

BioWare’s Ray Muzyka has commented on Mass Effect 3′s Kinect features, which he believes augment the experience without detracting from the franchise’s strengths.

“The Mass Effect franchise has always been about intense action and choice with consequence ā€¦ The Kinect experience we’re bringing to bear in Mass Effect 3 augments that experience,” Muzyka said in an episode of BioWare Pulse.

“… It feels very personalised, very customised. The experience is different – and yet you have the controller in your hands at the same time. Any time you choose to use the controller you can do so. There’s no gesturing. ā€¦ it’s all very seamless.”

During the Microsoft E3 press conference, BioWare debuted voice commands in Mass Effect 3 via Kinect, both for controlling squad members and making dialogue choices.

    My question may seem stupid but will this be available on the PC version? Since official Kinect drivers have been released for Windows if I’m not mistaken…

    Not a stupid question the Kinect works with the PC so there shouldn’t be a reason why not unless MS specified to Bioware not to.

    @2 Thanks for your answer. Let’s hope MS didn’t specify that to BioWare then. I’d like to at least try it :)
