Fable creator Peter Molyneux has confirmed that the third installment in Lionhead Studios' epic adventure franchise will receive downloadable episodes similar to those released for Fable II.
Molyneux told bit-tech (via Eurogamer) that he’s long since drawn inspiration for the scope and structure of Fable from a fairly obvious literary source.
“I’ve often thought it would be brilliant to be walking through Charles Dickens’ London. It was such a dark place and very episodic too – so we’re doing that with Fable III [...] We'll give you the first big episodes, and you'll be able to download new episodes, which is analogous to the way Dickens wrote."
Understandably, Molyneux didn’t elaborate on how many episodes are currently planned or how much they will cost, but the Fable II episodes should provide a solid model until more solid details are revealed.
