During a recent interview, Lionhead have admitted that Fable 2’s co-op was rubbish.
“We do admit, the co-op in Fable II was rubbish. We’d be restricted to being within 10 yards of each other, I’d have to be your henchman.” said Ted Timmins from Lionhead
The co-op and multiplayer aspect of Fable III will be much better, you will be able to bring your character with its own stats, interface, weapons and your dog into a friends’ game.
One other new feature is actually marriage, Ted explained that you will be able to get married with someone.
“If I’m playing with my girlfriend, I can get married to my girlfriend in the game,” Timmins said. “Have a wedding, get down on one knee like in real life.” he said
“When you actually get married in the game, you have a shared back account. So one day you might turn your game on thinking yeah, I’ve got 1000 gold, I can have that weapon that I wanted, you run over, you press A, you’ve got no money. The reason is, you go to your house, you’ve got pink wallpaper and a new bed.” he added.
Fable III will be released on the Xbox 360 and PC on October 26 of 2010.
