Amount of Mass Effect 3 dialogue rivals ME+ME2

Mass Effect 3 will be a chatty one, considerably more so than its predecessors; the sci-fi trilogy’s final act will have twice the amount of dialogue over the first game.

That’s 40,000 lines, the game’s audio lead Rob Blake has revealed over Twitter: “We do our best to keep consistency but it’s tough with 40,000 lines! We’ve got new techniques on ME3 that improve it tho!”

That’s actually almost as much as both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 combined; the two hold 20,000 and 25,000 lines, respectively.

Mass Effect 3‘s out next March.
