Mass Effect 3 has over 40,000 lines of dialogue

Posted By | On 02nd, Feb. 2012

Mass Effect 3 is a huge game. It has hundreds of thousands of variables and story branches, and that obviously means that it has a lot of dialogue, written and spoken. Mass Effect 3’s producer Mike Gamble says there’s at least over 40,000 lines of dialogue in the game.

“If you play and you’ve never played before, the dialogue choices that are shown reflect that,” Gamble told OXM. ” If you don’t import a save, it’ll be more descriptive, giving you more back-story, it will assume you know less. Whereas if you did import a save, the dialogue choices will be more to the point of what you’ve previously played.

“So that allows us to satisfy the existing audiences and help new players who don’t know who the characters are,” he continued.

“It’s literally trees and trees of dialogue lines.”

When asked how long the script exactly is, Gamble said: “The way we write our text, we don’t really do it by the traditional Hollywood read off a script. We’re over 40,000 lines of recorded, video dialogue though, which is our biggest Mass Effect so far. It’s taken a long time, and we’re fully localised in many languages as well.”

In the same interview, he discussed what Mass Effect 4 might focus on, saying it might be a prequel.

Mass Effect 3 releases on March 6 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Stay tuned for more coverage.
