There’s lots of chit-chat in Diablo III

There’ll be a lot of time for talking in Diablo III in between all of the bloodshed. Blizzard announced during a sound panel at this year’s BlizzCon that the upcoming dungeon crawler will feature as much as 16,000 lines of dialogue.

GameFront reports that each character class will claim 1,200 of those lines, and given the male and female variants that should mean 12,000 of those lines belong to the players, with the rest spoken by quest-giving NPCs.

The game’s out early next year on PC.
