BioWare’s well-known for the epic yarns put into its titles, and this is also one of the reasons folks seem to love the studio’s RPGs so much.

To those who love a grand story, it looks as though they are not going to be disappointed with Star Wars: The old Republic, because according to the game’s writing director, the story and conversations for it have massive a amount of content.

Speaking in an interview with VG247 during E3, Daniel Erickon said that there is enough voiceover content to surpass “50 Star Wars Novels”.

“The game itself, when you talk about total number of conversations, is bigger than every other game we’ve ever done put together,”said Erickson.

“At one point, we realized that, just for voiceover content, we were larger than 50 Star Wars novels – which was kind of surprising [laughs]. That kind of stuff is exciting and scary all at once.

“When we talk about things like, ‘You can play through one faction, and then play all the way through another faction, and it’s totally different,’ that’s huge. Even if you’re in the same faction, you’ve got a whole class story that’s going to take you all the way through everything.

“Yeah. There’s a lot of stuff there”.

Sound massive indeed.

SWTOR is slated for sometime during spring 2011, and you can catch the rest of the interview through here, and part one here.
