Voice actress Courtenay Taylor previosily used her talent to bring Resident Evil’s Ada Wong and Mass Effect’s Jack to life, and she is also the default voice if you choose to play as a female in Bethesda’s much-anticipated Fallout 4.
Taylor revealed that she recorded over 13,000 lines of dialogue over the course of two years, which is the longest time she spent recording for a video game. She continued to justify the long period by stating how much detail was put into the story and the environment.
To her, Fallout 4’s writing is ‘exactly what you would expect from a Fallout game, but better – it’s more immersive.”
“I mean, I’ve never worked this long on a game and I think that does affect my excitement but also the material is great. The writing is great. It is exactly what you would expect from a Fallout game, but better – it’s more immersive. They’ve taken it to a new level. There’s no stone that’s been unturned. It’s like – I went to Pixar, in Emeryville once. And they were talking about the movie Cars, and the level of detail in Cars. In every car, they would know what was in the glove box, even if the glove box is never opened, these creators would know exatly what was inside. You couldn’t just say “oh, I have no idea”. Detail is fleshed out completely. And it rung the same for me on Fallout 4. Even if the camera never goes there, we know it’s there. And the effect of that level of detail is going to be apparent.”
Fallout 4 releases on November 10 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, so get ready, because that’s just a week away.
