Dead Space 3 for Xbox 360 will feature Kinect voice controls, publisher Electronic Arts announced today. Players will be able to use simple voice commands like "Find partner," "Fire stasis," "Attack enemy" and others during gameplay in both single- and cooperative multiplayer.
Kinect voice controls are entirely optional in Dead Space 3. No gesture-based Kinect functionality was announced.
Dead Space 3 is due out February 5, 2013 in North America for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with a release following in Europe on February 8. The game is the first entry in the action-horror series to feature cooperative play. Players will venture to a new planet called Tau Volantis as series hero Isaac Clarke, but will also be joined by newcomer John Carver.
