Skyrim Kinect Support Release Date Narrowed Down

Posted on April 13, 2012 AT 08:13am

THE BUZZ: Pete Hines, vice president of marketing at Bethesda, has offered a narrowed down release date for the recently announced Kinect update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

He revealed that the update will go live during the last week of April, and will bring with it more than 200 voice commands.

EGM’s TAKE: We said most of what we thought on this update yesterday, you can read it here if you’re wondering. This is one of those love/hate updates, some fans will welcome it and enjoy what it brings, others will find it unnecessary and a way of diluting the core experience. It all depends on the type of player that you are. Before you yell too loudly though, remember that it’s an optional update. No one is forcing you to buy a Kinect to play Skyrim.

What are your thoughts on the update? Let us know in the comments below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
