SWTOR Wins Guinness World Record For Voice-Acting

We’ve all heard talk that The Old Republic would be fully voiced, with every bit of dialogue spoken by an NPC acted out by voice talent. But what some people may not have realized is how impressive a feat that is — so much so, that it landed the game a spot in the Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition.

The specific record TOR broke was “Largest Entertainment Voice Over Project,” with more than 200,000 lines of recorded dialogue performed by several hundred voice actors. Not only does this make it the most massive game in terms of voice acting, this record makes TOR a more ambitious recording project than any undertaking for a feature film.

Some prospective players were concerned that, over time, the voice acting would grow tiresome — have you found this to be the case?

The voice acting is great. Talking to an npc right next to the other and hearing the “exact” same voice and line is kind of dumb though.

Repeating the same few recorded lines 200000 times might actually be some kind of record.
