Lionhead filling Fable III with 47 hours of voice work

Fable III will be a chatty fellow; the RPG will have 47 hours worth of dialogue, Lionhead audio producer George Backer has revealed at the Develop Conference in Brighton. That’s 460,000 words.

Trotting around the gameworld and hearing the same chatter from the AI shouldn’t pose much of a problem either. The 32 different types of AI come with a vocabulary of 2,000 different sentences. Each.

According to Backer, the impressive amount of dialogue will be put to good use, too; the game has a cast of 80, including confirmed names John Cleese and Jonathan Ross.

The game’s out later in the year, on both the 360 and PC.
