Fable III is real and it’s coming exclusively to Xbox 360 during the 2010 holiday season, Lionhead head honcho and chronic over-hyper Peter Molyneux confirmed at Gamescom today.

The third chapter in the Fable saga begins five decades after the events of Fable II. You will actually play as the child of your hero from Fable II, and as the new king/queen of Albion you will have to make tough choices that will impact your character’s morality and the development of the entire kingdom. Sounds intriguing.

Molyneux explains a bit more:

“We’ve spent a lot of time at Lionhead thinking about how we can innovate the gameplay and progress the world of the Fable games for its third chapter, and we’re confident that players won’t second-guess what we have planned for Fable III,” said Molyneux, who also serves as creative director of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for Microsoft Game Studios. “Though I can’t give too much away right now, players should expect to have to make much tougher choices with far wider consequences than ever before in Albion—and with many more interactive adventure elements.”

And here is the unveil teaser trailer.
