In an interview with the UK’s Official Xbox Magazine about the Xbox One version of Bioware’s fantasy RPG sequal Dragon Age: Inquisition, which you can see the first trailer for above, the producer Cameron Lee revealed that they’re thinking about supporting Kinect 2 in some way. They mention Mass Effect 3 so it will probably have at least voice commands. Although they don’t mention it I would have thought there’s also a possibility of Dragon Age: Inquisition supporting Kinect for Xbox 360 with at least voice commands as well since Mass Effect 3 did.

Here are the the related excerpts from the interview:


Have you thought about any Xbox One exclusive features?

We’ve thought about it, we’ve looked at it, the SmartGlass stuff, the Kinect, the PS4′s Move and all that. One of the advantages of shipping a year after everyone else is that we get to see how everybody responds to these things, during the new generation. So, we want to take the time to look at how they work, and how players react. We don’t just want to jump in and say this is what we’re going to do, because it may not be what players want, it may not be a good experience. We have the luxury of time, to see how people respond and then craft something where if we want to do that, it’s the right thing to do. So we’ll see where we land with it, and we’ll take it from there.

I’d imagine you could do something great with Kinect. Mass Effect 3 was a great Kinect game, without primarily being a Kinect game.

It was, exactly. It was an interesting experience with Kinect on Mass Effect, and we’ve got a lot of the telemetry from Mass Effect 3 about how players used it, so we’ve certainly investigated quite deeply the difference between options. We’ll see where we go.



Dragon Age: Inquisition is due out on Xbox 360 & Xbox One in Autumn 2014.
