We always knew that Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary was going to be more than a straight port. Yesterday, at the New York Comic-Con, the development team at 343 Industries detailed the game’s new Kinect functionality.
Like Mass Effect 3, Kinect users will be able to use voice commands in-game. For example, yelling “Grenade!” will chuck out a grenade while yelling “Reload!” will reload your current weapon.
The Kinect add-on will also enable an Analyze Mode within Halo Anniversary. Yelling “Analyze” will scan the surrounding area and add any enemies encountered into a database dubbed The Library. That’s neat and all, but games have been doing the beastiary thing for decades now. Why is this a Kinect-only thing?
