So they have already stated everything NPC's say to you will be voice acted.
And I like many others are wondering.. Will they have celebrities do the voices on any or many of these NPC's

They have used them in previous games,
What do you guys thinks?

I don't really have an opinion. As long as the voice acting is good, I don't care who is talking.

What Knightmare said. I just hope that the voice acting is good. Also if they were to get celebrities it would cost a whole lot more then regular people, and that money could go to other things.

That is a good point, however there are certainly a lot of celebs that are inner nerds, potentially they would want to? (if not then damn them)

I wonder how it will work with several languages. There will be a english, a german and a french version. Of course there are games that run with french and german players on one server and the french guy hears french voices and the german guy hears german voices. Of course I´m talking of NPC voices here. But there will not be just a few lines like in a shooter. There will be masses of masses of spoken text.

So will the voices and files be downloaded onto every single computer? Like the localization of non-multiplayer games? Or how does that work? Just curious. Different languages could be a topic for this thread http://www.tesof.com/topic-himmelsrand-w...immelsrand (advertises his own thread ;))

i think i voiced my concerns about this already.
Voice acting kinda killed both AoC and SWTOR in different ways.

AoC boasted with having fully voice acted quests. turns out this only applied to the tutorial, and people got damn upset about it.
On SWTOR they basically wasted all their money on voice acting.

Two fates i do not want to see befalling TESO

Well, he heard Micheal Gambon (Dumbledore) in the teaser trailer. Chances are, he'll have a fairly major part. Probably Molag Bal or Mannimarco.

I think if they pulled it off in a smart way, using celebrity appearances to publicize to a wider range of people, The use of a famous actor websites such as IMDB will then have TESO in their database.

It puts the name all over the place, and people who follow celebs may be interested.
The problem a lot of games have is that they think its a cool idea to have them, but don't use it to its full potential.

They should have Jim Parsons voice someone :D

I was thinking more along the lines of how Fable 3 did it.

I'd guess that the client you download onto your computer will have all the files so that you can choose the language you want , then again I guess they could run separate servers for different languages but that would split up the community.

On the official ESO page it say's this in the faq section -

Q - In which languages can I play The Elder Scrolls Online?
A - The Elder Scrolls Online will be available in English, German, and French.

I would love to see a return to the raspy voiced male Dunmer from Morrowind. I always thought the voice acting in Skyrim was fine. I even liked Farengar Secret-Fire.

Now for real, it would be awesome if Johnny Depp would voice act some characters their own way.
