Forza Horizon 2 Kinect features centre on ‘digital personal assistant ANNA’

Forza Horizon 2‘s Kinect features will centre on a “digital personal assistant” called ANNA.

While Kinect integration for the Xbox racer wasn’t on show at E3 last month, Playground Games creative director Ralph Fulton told Examiner he’s “really excited” about the possibilities afforded by the voice and motion sensing device.

“Kinect will be involved with a feature called ANNA,” he said. “She is your digital personal assistant and navigation in the game. She is also very intelligent and will suggest things to do in the game and give you a recap when you return to the games. She will also alert you when friends are online.”

Fulton also confirmed that the game won’t feature a story mode, although he said it will offer “a vast robust solo experience” for players who aren’t keen on multiplayer.
