Speaking with Lionhead’s Peter Molyneux at X10, we found out why certain plans for Fable III might “piss off” fans of the series.
It appears that Fable III will be incredibly streamlined, doing away with the player HUD, removing your health bar and replacing it with an FPS style visual indicator.
Additionally, levelling up won’t occur in the usual way with accumulation of XP. Instead, your progress and standing in Fable III’s world will be measured by the number of followers you attract to your kingdom.
If you can woo the mayor of a town as King for instance, you’ll draw followers from there, expanding your influence.
Weapons too will benefit from the new levelling system applying level up enhancements the more you use a certain weapon. Once it reaches a new level, it’ll change in appearance, presumably gaining bolstered attributes as a result.
Us? We’re not pissed off at all by any of this. How about you?
