French publisher Ubisoft's next entry in the Ghost Recon
franchise will be the beginning of a permanent commitment to integrate Kinect functionality in all games in the Tom Clancy's
At Microsoft's E3 2011 press conference Monday morning, Ubisoft announced and showed the Kinect functionality for its upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
: first for weapon customization, allowing over 20 million customized weapons to be built, part by part, using either gestures or voice recognition.
Gesture controls were also shown for combat, with one hand steering the gun and the other firing.
"All future titles in the Tom Clancy's
will leverage Kinect," the company said at the end of its presentation, committing all of its franchises to the device.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
is expected to ship some time this year.
