Fallout 4 has more dialogue than Fallout 3 and Skyrim combined
Voice recording for Fallout 4 is complete, with more dialogue than Fallout 3 and Skyrim put together.
There will be plenty of talking in Fallout 4, as Bethesda reveals that the post-apocalyptic title will include more dialogue than its previous two games combined.
A total of 111,000 lines of dialogue have been recorded for Fallout 4 . After “many years” the herculean task of recording everything is now complete, Bethesda said on Twitter yesterday.
This is a clear indication of the scope and scale Bethesda is aiming for with Fallout 4, the first entry in post-apocalyptic franchise since Fallout: New Vegas in 2010.
Whilst ambitious, such an abundance of dialogue in Fallout 4 isn’t too surprising, considering they are now being powered by next generation hardware.
The PS4 and Xbox One both utilise Blu-ray discs, eliminating the space restrictions that often hindered the previous cycle of consoles.
