‘Fallout 4’ script is bigger than ‘Fallout 3’ and ‘Skyrim’ scripts combined

Fallout 4.

Goddamn! This is exactly the sort of news I cannot handle. I cannot handle this news because it makes me sweat Fallout 4 so hard. I cannot handle this news because it surely cements the Death of my (Non-Existent) Social Life come this November.


Fallout 4′s dialogue library is greater than that of Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, combined, Bethesda Game Studios boasted on Twitter.

It would stand to reason that the number of spoken lines in Fallout 4 are vastly greater, considering the main playable character — who can be of either gender — speaks, unlikeSkyrim or Fallout 3. Further, the robotic assistant that features in the beginning of the game can call the main character by a variety of names — including Fuckface — so this likely figures into the total.

Nonetheless, 111,000 lines of dialogue were recorded, a process taking “many years,” Bethesda says. The recording completed only recently.
