Battlefield 4 Kinect Settings Guide (For Xbox One)

Find out the new possibilities with Battlefield on the next gen console.

We have a screenshot revealing available Battlefield 4 voice commands and settings for Kinect. For the moment we will have to assume this is Xbox One only. These are what you need to know:

  1. Voice commands can be turned on and off.
  2. Dialects can be changed from US, Great Britain, etc.
  3. You can adjust sensitivity to leaning.
  4. Headtracking can be turned on and off.
  5. Freelook sensitivity, likewise, can also be adjusted.

 The reason I say this is Xbox One only is because one of the options listed here, head tracking, is clearly not possible with the older Kinect on the Xbox 360. Nonetheless, it may be safe to assume most of these will apply to the 360 version of Battlefield 4 as well. On the other hand, Windows PCs will be getting the same Kinect the Xbox One has, but it won’t be coming until next year.

We’re listing recognized Kinect voice commands below:

  • medic
  • need medic
  • need healing
  • go go go
  • affirmative
  • roger
  • thank you
  • need ammo
  • need ammunition
  • need a ride
  • need pickup

There is some debate among fans about the usefulness of the Kinect features, even from the source, but if implemented correctly these features can definitely open up gameplay options for players who want it. Leaning left and right and head tracking can make the game even more intuitive than it is now, and voice commands have proven their usefulness, even if they are not considered a necessity.

I won’t share it here, but there is an interesting discussion at the source explaining why these features can’t be replicated with the camera on the Playstation 4. If you’re curious, click through and judge for yourself.
