Anyone with a brother or sister knows that sibling rivalry is real. In extreme cases it can tear a family apart. So imagine if your older brother was a tyrannical King and it was down to you to overthrow him to bring peace to the land (extreme case in point)! That’s the situation that Fable III’s main protagonist finds himself in at the beginning of the game. There’s no slow intro this time, it’s straight into the action and the choices you make from the offset will determine the outcome of your journey.
The action RPG, set in an open world, continues the story from Fable II, but 50 years into the future. The eldest son of the hero from Fable II (The Hero of Bowerstone) has been given the crown but it’s safe to say he’s not being the greatest king and it’s up to you to do something about it. Through forming alliances and building a revolution you must do all you can to save the fictional continent of Albion from the clutches of your big bro turned evil villain Logan. That’s the first job, but once you’ve completed that fairly sizeable task, there’s the small matter of ruling the kingdom (no big deal). And the fun doesn’t stop there either! Having taken the throne, you’ll have to defend the realm from The Crawler and the forces of Darkness who are hellbent on death and destruction. Will you end up being a noble king or another deceitful tyrant? The choice is yours!
Fable III also features some fantastic voice acting from some very famous faces (well voices,) from the likes of John Cleese, Michael Fassbender, Stephen Fry and Simon Pegg (just to name a few), making it a real blockbuster!
