George Backer, audio producer at Lionhead, has said Fable III will contain 47 hours of voiced dialogue.
Mentioned during his talk at Develop today, Backer said this amounts to 460K words, assuring characters won’t repeat themselves, with each of the 32 AI types able to say around 2,000 different lines.
According to the producer, Peter Molyneux himself oversaw the “freestyle” sessions with actors during development, in order to keep the dramatic flair going before voice and motion capture sessions were recorded.
The one featuring John Cleese can be seen here.
Fable III is out October 26 for Xbox 360 and PC, with Molyneux himself demoing the game at Develop this week.
