Dragon Age: Inquisition to have Kinect voice commands

And maybe SmartGlass support, too.

Skyrim and Mass Effect did it, and now Dragon Age: Inquisition will do it - Kinect voice commands are in.

"We're expecting that Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions will ship with a Kinect-enabled voice command feature, just like Mass Effect 3 did," creative director Mike Laidlaw told Total Xbox.

It's not clear exactly how they'll work, but presumably you'll be able to bark out squad commands and maybe even voice a bit of fantasy speech. "Forsooth, my inappropriate corset hath fallen apart!"

SmartGlass support is on the cards, too. "It needs to make sense of course," said producer Cameron Lee, "but we want Inquisition to be an experience you can take with you everywhere - to work, the commute home, the living room, bed."

Previous Dragon Age games have integrated BioWare Social Network support for online character profile pages. Presumably this could take things a step further.
