Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Kinect-enabled

The rumored Kinect functionality of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier appears to have panned out.

A new boxart for the Ubisoft shooter, due out next year, discovered on (since removed, via) labels the game as “better with Kinect sensor.” No word on what to expect, though according to a rumor from 2010 — from a time when Kinect was still known as Project Natal — the game will combine the traditional controller with Kinect controls, allowing players to use hand signals to issue commands, for example.

According to the same rumor, the Kinect functionality is optional.

After yet another delay, Future Soldier is currently on for an early 2012 release.
