On The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Audio

The Bethesda Blog points to Making a Dragon Sandwich: The Sound of Skyrim, a new feature on the audio in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda's imminent RPG sequel. This includes a podcast and a trailer on recording the Jeremy Soule-composed soundtrack (which is is now available for preorder) and the game's voice acting. The trailer includes anecdotes about composing and recording a song in dragon language and how they are responding to the complaints about how many NPCs in Oblivion shared the same voices by employing 70+ actors for over 110 roles, which Todd Howard notes is "a lot more than we've ever had." We also hear from a couple of those voice actors, Joan Allen and Christopher Plummer.

Yeah, it's pretty cool Max and Joan are in there, with 60+ other voice actors. A huge relief, it will make it MUCH easier to forgive bugs this time.

The limited voices in Oblivion were just excruciatingly painful, even NOW I can't seem to go an play it. Thought about trying the game with all the voices turned off and just reading my way. Then I couldn't hear the NPCs I want to hear like Saerileth and Viconia.

All I got to say is, NObody better get between Creston and his Skyrim!
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
