Xbox One owners now have a new reason to talk to their consoles. Released Wednesday, Voice Commander is a free-to-play, voice-controlled, eight-player RTS developed by Microsoft Garage.
Voice Commander is described as a mashup between a real-time strategy game and a top-down shooter. Up to eight players can simultaneously shout commands to help defend Earth from “relentless attacks.”
Microsoft Garage consists of interns and employees from around the company who work together to turn their “wild ideas into real projects.” The group previously created some social, mobile and wearable technology apps.
