Star Wars: The Old Republic Wins “Most Voice Acting Ever” Guinness World Record

Star Wars: The Old Republic has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records as having the most voice acting in any media ever!

The award (shown above) was accepted by BioWare Co-Founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk, at the game’s midnight launch event on December 20th, 2011.

The latest Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition stated:

“Star Wars: The Old Republic, developed by BioWare with LucasArts and EA, boasts a record-breaking effort as the Largest Entertainment Voice Over Project ever. More than 200,000 lines of recorded dialogue were performed by several hundred voice actors, making it a far more ambitious recording project than any undertaking for a feature film.

This behind-the-scenes video talks about recording the voice acting in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The announcement continued, saying: “This record is included in an eye-popping two-page spread that pays homage to 30 years of Star Wars gaming with fun facts, figures and new records from the storied franchise.”
