Fable III Introduces Kingly Consequences

By Spencer . August 19, 2009 . 3:13pm

fableiiiLionhead is already working on Fable III which puts players on a path to royalty. Once crowned king or queen of Albion, players face a new set of moral dilemmas.

 

Fable III tests values by seeing how you rule a kingdom. Will you let your subjects wallow in poverty while living a life of luxury or sacrifice everything for your subjects?

 

Joystiq explains the judgment system allows players to dictate laws like what to do with a girl that stole bread with quick decisions. The touch system lets the ruler order his subjects to complete tasks like saving a child from a burning building.

 

While a handful of games give players choices on how to save the world, Fable III asks players what happens afterwards.

 

Fable III is slated to come out in holiday 2010, around two years after Fable II.

    I’m not seeing the game play in this scenario. It sounds like I just sit there…
    BUT, I will get this. I didn’t enjoy Fable II that much, beat it, but I guess there was more for me to do to fully enjoy the game.

      Then you must have never tried Little King’s Story or FFCC: My Life as a King. Well, I really haven’t either, but at least they prove they can work.

    Lionhead should stop making Fable games and just make more Fable concept art.
