The new teaser clip for upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive “Fable III” is all about taking it to the Man, and the secret deals it takes to foment a violent coup.
On their official development blog, Lionhead Studios details the elements of the TV spot:
The gripping trailer, “Revolution,” takes you from the depths of rebellion to the birth of revolution in Albion as you take the lead in overthrowing the tyrant king Logan. Sounding the call-to-arms against oppressive rule and negotiating strategic partnerships with the different clans of Albion, the Hero and his fellow revolutionaries rise up to seize the throne. Xbox and agencytwofifteen worked with Emmy award-winning visual effects house Psyop to bring the story to life with rich and imaginative cinematic detail. The journey is set to the chilling backdrop of the Black Angels’ track, “Young Men Dead,” resulting in a compelling story of revolutionary struggle and upheaval.
There’s no trace of the “You’re king, now what?” part of the game, but that’s understandable, since it’s not as sexy as the overthrowing part. You’ll get your chance to get rebellious when Fable III hits the 360 on October 26th.
