Microsoft’s GamesCon press conference started off with a bang with the unveiling of Fable 3. There were talks of “New, Fresh, and Different” to what in specific though we still don’t know. You will start the game as either the son or daughter of the Hero from Fable 2. During the first half of the game you will start a revolution against the current king and ultimately overthrow his kingdom. As fun and promising as this sounds this game will still be strongly dependant on its fighting mechanics which we have yet to see any of.
Peter Molyneux said:
“I think 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.” he added “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? I want players to feel and experience what it’s like to be a ruler.”
