Voice Over Work is HUGE -- Testament to a Well-Kept Secret

Voice Over Work is HUGE -- Testament to a Well-Kept Secret - MMORPG.com

In a new interview at Britain's The Telegraph, Todd Howard reveals that over 13,000 lines of Fallout 4 dialog have been recorded in the last couple of years. Not only is that indicative of the level of "secrecy" that the project embodied, but also the massive size of the game itself, particularly with regard to player choices.

Given this era of big budget blockbusters, motion capture and lavish cutscenes, it’s unusual that a voiced player-character can cause such a stir. The concern with Fallout is that your conversation with the wasteland’s denizens will be limited. “We had the same worry as everyone else,” admits Howard.

“A lot of games have voiced characters, but what they don’t want to give up is all the dialogue options. So for us a lot of it was logistical. The voice actors have been recording for 2 years, they’ve each done over 13,000 lines of dialogue. So to be able to do that makes the difference; you still have choice.”

The interview is a great read and worth the time to head to the link above to check out.
