Battlefield 4 was confirmed as having some form of Kinect features a while back, but now executive producer Patrick Bach has explained that DICE is now researching a variety of features including leaning and second screen maps.

Speaking with Xbox Wire, Bach said, “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.”

It’s not clear if these functions will be available at launch, but we’ll keep our ear to the ground in case any more is said.

Battlefield 4 will be available October 29 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will also be made available on PS4 November 12 in North America and in Europe on November 29. The Xbox One version will be release in North America on November 19 and in Europe on November 21.
