Though there wasn’t much by way of new reveals in the Xbox TGS 2021 presentation, Microsoft did have various announcements. Bethesda Game Studios’ Todd Howard, who’s currently directing Starfield, also made an appearance. Howard revealed that the upcoming sci-fi space RPG would have over 150,000 lines of dialogue.
It will also be completely localized in Japanese with full voice-acting (which Arkane Studios’ Redfall is also getting). In terms of dialogue amount, Fallout 4 had 110,000 lines while The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim had about 60,000 lines, all fully voiced. Not that this should serve as an indication of the game’s size but at least there’s a good amount of story content to be expected.
Starfield is in development exclusively for Xbox Series X/S and PC. It’s slated to release on November 11th 2022 and will launch day one on Xbox Game Pass. Details on various locations were revealed by Bethesda last month – you can read more about those here.
