Seeing as Fallout 4's wasteland is, well, you know, a bit barren, we suppose its inhabitants have generally got a lot of free time on their hands. And when the world outside of your tin shack is packed with things just waiting to eat you alive, spending a lot of that free time chatting to other doomed souls probably seems like a good idea. As such, it's perhaps no surprise that the upcoming post-apocalyptic adventure's got an absolute truckload of spoken dialogue.

Bethesda's confirmed via Twitter that the blockbuster's script features over 111,000 lines, so you can expect plenty of character building exercises as you make use of the game's all-new, fully voiced dialogue system. The developer also pointed out that there's more dialogue here than in Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim combined - so let's hope that the studio's hired more than eight voice actors this time around, eh?

Joking aside, it's clear that Bethesda's trying to pursue a stronger narrative with its latest project, and we can't wait to see what sort of dark comedy it's managed to cook up this time around.

Is Fallout 4 right at the top of your most wanted list, or is your hype gently simmering as we move into the holiday rush? Go off like a nuke in the comments section below.
