Watch New ‘Dead Island 2’ Hands-On IGN Gameplay Preview Video
“Amazon is launching a new tool called Alexa Game Control that’s designed to let gamers use natural language voice commands so they can accomplish actions in video games.
“The first game to feature the technology will be the zombie-filled Dead Island 2, which was just re-revealed at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live event.
“With Alexa Game Control, Amazon says you’ll be able to do things like interact with NPCs and switch weapons just by using your voice.
“You won’t need to use a wake word like “Alexa” or even have one of Amazon’s Echo devices, and the company says that the feature will work with “any microphone or headset connected to their PC or console.” However, you will be able to use Alexa features like controlling smart home devices and ordering food.”
