Microsoft has released a Fable III launch trailer – which is also the US TV ad – ahead of the games launch at the end of the month. The Fable III TV trailer shows its world of Albion in the midst of a revolution as your hero attempts to overthrow the corrupt King Logan.
The one minute long Fable III video features the hero taking the lead in the revolution, while fighting breaks out in the streets, important looking people are kidnapped and statue representing the old regime of King Logan falls to the ground. All in all, the Fable III trailer looks like it could be for a TV series rather than a game!
