Some Fable III Details
They put an RPG inside your RPG.
10.15.10 - 2:57 AM
With the release of Fable III less than two weeks away, Microsoft mentioned a few more interesting tidbits at a recent event in Manhattan. One of the sidequests is fairly involved, in which you can play a tabletop RPG that will actually give you some stat boosts (albeit sometimes quirky ones). The game masters of course, are some of the Fable characters and can be heard chatting about the game and its rules in the background of this quest, which takes about twenty minutes to complete.
Now, you no longer have to get married in order to be financially well-off in the game - you can enter a business partnership instead if you'd like. What exactly that means, only time will tell. That said, the romance system is not as simple as before and you're going to have to work harder than before to win someone's heart in Fable III.
Finally, magic - any type of magic - can be combined, since characters can wield two magic gauntlets. So you can make some pretty powerful and interesting magic mixtures, which always sounds like fun (to me, anyways).
Fable III for Xbox 360 will be out on October 26th for $59.99 US. If you have the money to spare, you also have the option of a collector's edition for $79.99 US, which includes: an extra quest, an exclusive location, a Boxer dog breed, Fable III-themed playing cards, and a Guild Coin - in case you have trouble deciding the world's fate yourself. The PC version, meanwhile, has been delayed to an unspecified date.
