When compared to other titles from Bethesda, Starfield’s dialogue count is well ahead of the pack. Fallout 4 had a total of 110,000 lines of dialogue, while Skyrim’s dialogue count was just around 60,000 lines. Therefore, Starfield is going to be bigger and might also include a lot of design choices.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, another very popular and massive RPG developed by CD Projekt Red was packed with things to do and unique RPG elements. The game had 450,000 words and over 900 actors. Starfield developers could take some inspiration from Witcher 3 like the side activities and world exploration and improve on those.
