You can shout "grenade!" and see Master Chief sling one with the Kinect functionality 343 Industries has added to Halo: Anniversary, the high-definition remake coming on November 15. Other voice commands include "reload!" the studio revealed yesterday at Comic-Con.
Kinect will also support the spoken command "analyse", which allows players to capture specific items from the environment and store them in the game's "library", where they are given a text listing and a 3D model to view up close.
Library is available only for those with Kinect, however. (Reloading and grenade chucking are, of course, available for controller-only gamers.)
Though 343 did not specify further, it sounds as though "reload", "grenade" and "analyse" are not the only spoken commands Halo: Anniversary will recognise. We'd already heard that Kinect would allow players to switch the game between its high-definition and classic graphics.
Also, ShackNews reported that 343 revealed that "Hang 'Em High" is the final multiplayer map for Anniversary.
A short video of 343's discussion of Kinect functionality may be seen at Joystiq.
