Bethesda is to add Kinect support for the Xbox 360 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with the update featuring more than 200 voice commands and other pieces of funtionality.

Kinect support will be introduced to Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Xbox 360, Bethesda has announced. Support will be added in later this month as part of a free update to the RPG.

More than 200 voice commands will be added to the RPG, including the ability to equip hotkeys, follower commands, menu commands and dragon shouts – yes, you can now shout “fus ro dah” to your heart’s content.

A full list of shouts will emerge “in the coming weeks”.

Other options will include map functions and the ability to to sort items by name, weight and value.
