Giant Bomb has been pumping out some great videos from E3 2009, but we of course took immediate notice of this interview
with two Star Wars: The Old Republic
developers from BioWare
. Most of the conversation revolves around information we already know, until one of the devs reveals, "we have literally thousands of roles which are voiced in our game, which are done by many, many hundreds of voice actors."
We knew there was going to be a lot of people, but, okay we didn't expect that
Much of the Massively crew agreed that Star Wars: The Old Republic's
classes would be limited to four or five on each side, due to the fully-voiced announcement
. Now we're thinking differently with thousands of roles filled by many hundreds of voice actors. Suddenly, six or seven per side doesn't seem like a far away fever dream.
If you'd like to see how it ends when you ask a BioWare dev about SWTOR's
release date, check out the full video after the break.
