Halo: Anniversary Kinect features revealed

Three features specifically for Kinect.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Microsoft’s high-definition update of the 2001 shooter, will support three Kinect-specific features when it’s released next month.

You can issue voice-commands to reload your weapon, throw grenades, and to switch between classic and remastered graphics.

Analyze Mode allows you to scan items into The Library, an index where you can view detailed item information. By saying “scan,” whilst aiming your reticule at an item, you’ll scan the item to The Library.

In The Library, you’ll be able to navigate its content using various gestures.

Microsoft also released three new Halo videos today, including a behind-the-scenes look at Anniversary‘s single-player.

A new set of screenshots, featuring the High Noon multiplayer map, can be seen at the gallery.
