Mass Effect 3 audio lead Rob Blake has revealed that the game will feature 40,000 lines of recorded dialogue – that’s twice as much dialogue as the first game, and almost twice as much as its sequel.
Wondering how wordy Mass Effect 3 is set to be? Well, wonder no more. The answer is “very”.
Indeed, the game’s audio lead, Rob Blake, has revealed on Twitter that the game will feature a whopping 40,000 lines of recorded dialogue.
To put that into perspective, Mass Effect featured 20,000 lines, while its sequel featured 25,000 lines. So the third game, the final in this strand of the Mass Effect story, features almost as much recorded dialogue as the first two titles combined.
The revelation comes from Blake after a fan expressed concerns on Twitter about consistency of volume in Shepard’s voice.
“We do our best to keep consistency but it’s tough with 40,000 lines!” wrote Blake in response.
But, he added, the team has “new techniques” for Mass Effect 3 which should help to ensure everything stays nice and even.
The Mass Effect 3 story is the first to take the fight to the planet Earth, as it’s attacked by the Reaper hordes.
We’re looking forward to seeing how it pans out. Quite a lot, in fact. So it makes us rather giddy to know we’ll be going hands-on with the game next week.
