There Came an Echo is a Voice-Controlled Squad-Based RTS For PS4

By   /   Apr 10, 2014

Iridium Studios is bringing to our attention their upcoming “voice-controlled squad-based real-time strategy game” called There Came an Echo; which will release either late 2014 or early 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

On the battlefield players take the role of a tactical commander, who then will be issuing orders to move around soldiers. These orders can be given through your headset or if you prefer, a controller. The developer revealed that their work is heavily influenced by games such as XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Tom Clancy’s EndWar.

Games supporting voice recognition do not always come out right. Most of us find it annoying to having repeat instructions, but Iridium is pretty confident that we’ll opt for that instead of the conventional controller.

More so, players have the option of recording their own commands as well that will override the default ones. “There Came an Echo goes a little farther with something we call command aliasing,” said lead designer Jason Wishnov. “Don’t like the default commands, like “fire” or “shields up”? You can enter in your own custom word or phrase for every existing unit and command in the game.”

The plot of the game is unclear at this moment. It vaguely has something to do with a conflict over a technology that can change the world.
