Set half a century after the 2nd Fable installment, again the primary essence of this action Role Playing Game is choice.
By interacting with a variety of Albion inhabitants, your decisions have a direct impact on the course of the tale, and your fate. Make nasty choices and you head down the path of evil, while a more virtuous path will result in rising to becoming a great and influential figure.
In the previous chapter a hero rose to stop a madman from reshaping Albion into his wicked vision. He was succeeded by one of his children, Logan (your sibling). In ruling this new prosperous and advancing society, Logan fell from grace, sparking whispers of revolution, with you set to spearhead the take-over by forging allies. After choosing your gender, you go out into the world with the potential to lead Albion down a fortuitous road, or dark destruction as you decide on your actions, from whether to help people in need, to unprovoked killing - this contributes to the changing of your appearance and villagers' reaction towards you. Even your diet and fighting style translates to your physical appearance. Your weapons also adapt to your personality.
Your loyal dog follows you everywhere and will prove indispensable, from warning you, to assisting in combat and finding treasure. Money, haggling and gifts are important and crime is a possibility.
Magic also comes into play with spells and potions, and various upgrades and essentials are found along the way. Magical doors need keys, and as to be expected, you'll have to find them. You can also have sex, get married and start a family!
The Sanctuary is the most important location where you can track your quests, maps, inventory, trophies and family, store your armoury, wardrobe, gifts and access the X Box Live Room. Special downloads can be accessed on-line.
Going out into this free-roaming Steam-Punk slanted realm and interaction with its population as you choose, this could become more interesting than the real lives of the gamers sinking their teeth into this exciting and vast experience, exploring, battling, and constantly adapting to how you live this virtual life!
