Fable II had co-op, true, but it was pretty weak at best. Lionhead is listening to its fans this time around, adding a more fleshed out co-op experience in Fable III.
“I heard you all about co-op,” Peter Molyneux told the 4Guys 1Up podcast. “You want to have your own hero come into the world. Okay, fine, you can have that definitely.
“When you come into my world, you come in as your hero, with your dog, with all your unique weapons, self-crafted weapons. I heard you — you don’t wanna be tied to my camera, you wanna go off and do your own thing in my world. Fine, fair enough.”
Molyneux pointed out that players need to be careful who they invite though because “they can screw the whole thing up.”
Fable III is releasing this fall.
