It’s not even your birthday, but Bethesda will give you two gifts tomorrow: permission to shout at your TV, and details of the first batch of DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

“Be on the lookout for the first DLC info tomorrow,” the Elder Scrolls Twitter account promised.

Don’t get too excited, though.

“A tidbit of info. Not a complete dload of info,” Bethesda’s Pete Hines warned.

You know what definitely is coming tomorrow? A patch for the Xbox 360 version of the game which adds Kinect voice support for dragon shouts.

For those of you who can’t actually remember any of the commands, Bethesda has released a PDF listing all the shouts and how to use them (this could be considered a little spoilery if you like finding all the new powers yourself).

Worth noting is the fact that you don’t need to use any priming commands or key presses if you use the English names for the shouts, so go ahead and yell “Unrelenting Force” while your brother is chatting with a guard.
