Mass Effect 3 is the final chapter of the Commander Shepard trilogy, and it will have the most dialog. According to BioWare audio lead Rob Blake, it will have twice as many lines as Mass Effect alone.
On Twitter, a fan expressed concern over the consistency of volume in Shepard’s voice. Blake “We do our best to keep consistency but it’s tough with 40,000 lines! We’ve got new techniques on ME3 that improve it tho!” For comparison, Mass Effect had 20,000 lines, while Mass Effect 2 had 25,000.,
Mass Effect 3 will be released in March 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
