Battlefield 4 will support Xbox One’s Kinect sensor, DICE has confirmed.
In the latest edition of GameInformer, DICE’s general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson said of the game’s Kinect support, “We have a pretty pragmatic view [on the new Kinect]. Instead of just trying to tick all the boxes of features you can do with new hardware, we look at what actually adds value [for] our players.
“When you look at the kind of games that we build – or Battlefield at least – it is a first-person shooter that is very much about skill. Input is really important. You need to have very precise control over what’s going on, and trying to do something like that with motion control input does not make sense – not if you want to keep the same kind of formula of the game as we [have] now. You’d need to build a different kind of shooter.
“But there are other places where it will make sense, and we are going to use it for other things in the game, but we haven’t announced exactly what.”
So it won’t be players waggling their hands around like chumps to make their soldier run around and shoot things. What do you think Kinect could be used for in Battlefield 4? Let us know below.
