Fable 3 Will Do Away With An RPG Foundation Stone

During his GamesCom presentation, Peter Molyneux announced Fable 3.

Promising that the game would provide something "new, fresh, and different," Peter Molyneux said that he thinks " there's something fundamentally wrong with RPGs like Fable... It's a mechanic that's been there since the eighties. I'm going to take that foundation stone and throw it away." Needless to say, Molyneux is keeping his lips sealed about the aforementioned mechanic.

In Fable 3, the player will become the ruler of the world of Albion. "You are going to become the ruler of the whole of Albion. You've played in this land in Fable 1, in Fable 2 you became a hero; this time, why not rule Albion? Why not be a king or a queen?," Molyneux said. "I want players to feel and experience what it's like to be a ruler."

Players will take the role of either the son or daughter of the Hero from Fable 2. They'll spend the first half of the game gaining support and starting a revolution against the current king. "Ultimately you overthrow that terrible tyrant who rules Albion, but to do that you have to make some promises," said Molyneux. Of course, keeping those campaign promises is totally up to the player who might choose to spend the money in his treasure room to buy new items for himself or to abolish poverty from his kingdom; either way, there will be consequences.

Fable 3 will be released sometime in the second half of 2010.

Fable 3 Will Do Away With An RPG Foundation Stone

I really hope he doesn't go through with Fable 3. Fable 1, great game. Fable 2, horrible. Black and White, decent game. Black and White 2, terrible. Notice a pattern? Leave the Fable series alone.Fable 2 had so much hype that it ended up being a huge letdown. I hope Peter advertises Fable 3 as a crap game. It would be honest, and maybe he will have a more positive response.

Man so much hate for his guy. I'll tell you all what. Why don't you all get off your fat lazy asses, get out of your parent's basement, get a job, get an education, and make better games?You thankless idiots expect to be catered to and then whine, "this game sucks" when some one makes a bad game. Well guess what, I'd like to see you all do better.Man what a bunch of babies.

@10:44Ha, I love these guys. There's a whole lot of laws, corrupt politicians, war and all manner of social/cultural works of s**t that I have a problem with. Thing is, people probably won't appreciate me overthrowing society and turning the civilised(lol) world into good ol' fashioned mindless anarchy.Such a shame.
