Default Lionhead Studios - Fable 3 Announced

August 20th, 2009, 06:58
Lionhead and Microsoft have put out a press release announcing their next title in the Fable series, the XBox 360 exclusive Fable III, along with a trailer and two concept art pics. You can read the press release details and catch the media here at Voodoo Extreme, Action Trip, and ShackNews among others. Eurogamer also has a preview of the game here.
From Eurogamer:
"The entire Fable idea is a fairytale twist on European history and myth," says [art lead John] McCormack. "What we've settled on is to go about 50 years on from Fable II. So we've loosely chosen the Napoleonic period, and we've started to pull in a bit of Regency, a tiny bit of Victorian, and we're plugging in an early industrial age to Albion. It's a Napoleonic fairytale."
The game is slated for a holiday 2010 release date.
More information.

Well, I can't say that I'm surprised. They never made Fable 2 for the PC, so why should they make Fable 3 for it.

I used to like Peter Molyneux. Sure he was a bit of a loud mouth and basically crazy, but still he made some interesting games. Now….I could careless what his next project would be.

Despite all my rage.
I'm still just a rat in a cage.

Their source of inspiration seems to be Arcanum (Industry vs Nature/Magic). Could turn out interesting, though I have no illusions it'll turn out to be another Arcanum. Still, the concept is fairly interesting.

Molyneux's concepts are generally fairly interesting. In the most basic level, he's actually a very good designer, and I believe that's why people think he's a good designer all around. I mean, if you think game design is all about know how to make a game that sells, than I believe he's probably one of the best, along all the guys in his sales and marketing department: they're fairly good game designers too.

In any case, it's how he develops his basic ideas that make me, too, not give a damn about what he does. Lol.

Just play Fable: Lost Chapters on the PC. It's a better game than Fable 2 turned out to be and I expect even less from Fable 3. Fable 2 felt like a kick in the gut and I refuse to buy another game that has Molyneux as a designer. What the hell happened since Populous or Dungeon Keeper?
