DICE Looking Into Kinect Head Tracking for Battlefield 4 Xbox One

Posted on September 18, 2013 AT 06:55am

DICE is looking into adding Kinect features to the Xbox One version of Battlefield 4 that ”enhance controls,” such as head tracking.

“Through SmartGlass, Xbox players will be able to view the overhead map during multiplayer matches and take advantage of the second screen,” Battlefield executive producer Patrick Bach told Xbox Wire. ”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.”

Back at E3 in June, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson told Game Informer that the developer had no plans to mess with Battlefield‘s core gameplay by implementing needless Kinect features. However, he did add that Kinect could be used elsewhere in the game–with voice commands seeming the obvious place at the time.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
