When Microsoft announced the anniversary remake of Halo: Combat Evolved at its 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing, the publisher confirmed that the game would support the Xbox 360's motion-sensing add-on Kinect but gave no more details on how the game would integrate the technology.
Now, Microsoft has chosen to detail Halo: CE Anniversary's Kinect functionality at the Halo/343 Industries panel during New York Comic-Con. According to Game Rant, 343 Industries confirmed that the game will include two features that make use of the Kinect.
The first feature is a voice command option, which will allow players to control certain actions, such as throwing grenades, reloading weapons, and switching between the remastered and classic versions of the game by speaking certain words.
The second feature is an Analyze mode that allows players to scan environments, persons of interest, and items in the game by selecting them and speaking the word "scan." The scanned items will then appear in an in-game library that can be viewed anytime for background information on the Halo universe.
Halo: CE Anniversary is due for release on November 15, and will include a remastered campaign, Xbox Live co-op support, and seven bundled multiplayer maps. In August, Microsoft confirmed that the game will feature stereoscopic 3D support.
