Since pre-order bonuses are all the rage nowadays, it’s only natural that Fable 3 hop on the bandwagon, right? Still, it’s better than a slap in the face, amirite? And I imagine it helps speed up the ditheres who haven’t gotten round to pre-ordering themselves a copy as of yet.
Here’s a quote from the press release:
The Fable III pre-order tool invites fans to design their own villager with over 2,000 possibilities; pre-order incentive includes bonus quest and gold fortune.
Great heroes of the past and present all know one thing is true: the revolution starts with you. That’s why Microsoft and Lionhead Studios are giving fans the chance to get into the action now before Fable III launches in the U.S. on Oct. 26 (This date varies depending on region). With the all-new character creator tool, called the Fable III Villager Maker, fans who pre-order the game can create and bring their personalized villager to life. Your custom in-game villager will deliver to your hero a thrilling new quest and 1,000 gold fortune, and then continue to interact with you on your journey to become ruler of Albion. I think it’s very important to stress the point that this is an exclusive quest and the only way to get it is by placing a pre-order!
Fans can utilize the tool to create a male or female villager with more than 2,000 different variations, including an enthralling backstory for the character, unique personality traits, clothing, accent, hairstyles and the region they hail from. Whether you create a valiant ally, an evil villain, or perhaps the perfect spouse, let your imagination run free as you make your mark in the fantastical world of Fable III.
The fun doesn’t stop there. With the Villager Maker, you’ll be able to save your character as a desktop wallpaper and share your creation with your friends on Facebook and Twitter to see who has the coolest design. Anyone can start designing, but transporting the villager into Fable III is a reward given only to fans who pre-order the game at participating retailers. A redeemable code will be provided that allows players to bring their character creation to life in Fable III when the game launches.
