Bethesda’s sci-fi RPG Starfield promises to be a big, sprawling sci-fi romp—”like Skyrim in space,” creative director Todd Howard said earlier this year. But it definitely won’t be all action. Howard told an audience at the Tokyo Game Show earlier today (via Nibellion on Twitter) that the game will contain more than 150,000 lines of dialog.
By way of comparison, that’s more lines of chit-chat than Fallout 4, and more than double the verbosity of Skyrim:
Todd Howards appeared on stream to announce that Starfield will have a complete Japanese localization (just like Redfall) and mentioned that the game has over 150,000 lines of dialogue apparently #TGS2021 (Fallout 4 had 111,000 lines, Skyrim 60,000) pic.twitter.com/0PzvVtojyjSeptember 30, 2021
