"Microsoft has also today announced that every new copy of Fable III will be packaged with a one-time-use Xbox Live download code that will grant access to the following exclusive content:


Raise Dead Potion - Call forth undead minions to your aid
Slow Time Potion - Extend battle time for more attacks
Scot Male Hero Outfit or the Scot Female Hero Outfit - For the fashionably conscious, try them on and keep them
Highlander Tattoo Set - perfect for a hero or heroine looking to get inked
Red Setter Dog Skin - Transform your faithful furry companion into a whole new breed"

NOTE: The DLC comes on a slip INSIDE of the game case. No worries about having the code emailed to you, printed on a receipt, or handed to you by an employee.

NOTE#2: The potion are one-time use items. You can get multiple of each potion and they are already in the game. These potions are just some free ones. The dog skin/clothes/tattoos can NOT be gotten in the game without this DLC.

That means the code will be inside the box, yes?

Yes. The code will most likely come on a card like the LE content did in Fable II, or the Recon Helmet for Halo Reach.

I know things sometimes go by different names in different countries, so can somebody confirm that "Red Setter" is what I would know as an Irish Setter? Tall, thin dog with long, red hair?

If so, I have my dog breed (unless by some miracle they include a Doberman, Rottweiler, or Beagle with it).

Only 4 more days for me, which means I REALLY need to finish the Fable book soon. I'm just less than halfway through the book.

I can confirm that a Red Setter is an Irish Setter. I do work at a Vet hospital after all :)

Get crackin', it's not that long of a book.

Thank you. That makes up for what they did at the end of Fable 2. Guess I'm probably not using my LE Boxer now. Maybe I'll use it on my evil run through.

Oh I know, I've just been progressing slowly since I've been busy with other things. I could probably finish it in an afternoon if I had the time to do so.

No problem. I'm not even going to be using my LE Boxer since they have Border Collies in the game, which happen to be my absolute favorite breed :D

Nice to hear, they should have DLC for something like 80 points per dog skin for a large portion of the worlds dog breeds. I would love to have my Bernese Mountain running a long with my Fable hero. :)

No reason to hope and get the Slow Time potion, as the code gives you ALL of the aforementioned DLC.

Well, if you aren't going to use your code, you could always send it my way. I let the Mrs do the preorder and she didn't ask for the LE, and now they won't do preorders on it.

I just hope it's put inside the box by the factory and not given by some clerk who *oops* forgot to give the code or *oops* we don't have enough codes, that kind of shit.

It's in the box. I saw an LE unboxing where he opened it up and went through everything. When he opened the game case he pulled out some of the paper on the instruction booklet side. One of them was the LE content card, another was a slip for the code I mentioned in the OP.

So don't worry, as it comes inside the game case.

Mine too, since I have one in real life it would be cool to have one in fable 3

I grew up with one when I was little. Sadly he died a few years ago and I have a new Border Collie now. And I have one as an avatar prop. And I'll have one in Fable III :)

On a side note, I finished the book last night. Good read.

I think that's the best LE I have ever bought.
So much content for the money, it's a great value.

Thanks for the video.

I do really like the LE. I'm glad that the coin is metal as well.

And thanks go to FableFan101 for posting the video.

You won't when it gets pulled up into a tree by a Balverine or put on a spit roast in a Hobbe Cave :p

im glad they are doing this. of corse this content should be in the game anyways. but they are trying to get the ppl to buy it new and that is good. i always buy my games new. the rental and used game industry (especially the later) is hurting the game industry. they dont profit from the used game market. the gaming industry could also stop being greedy but that wont happen so they are trying to get the ppl to be less cheap and actually fork over the cash for a new game. im just having issues with the villager maker at the moment. its a pre order deal but the maker is currently not working on xbox.com.

Yes this DLC is already in the game. At least the potions anyway. They are one-time use items that you need to get and use each time.
As for the Dog skin and the tattoo, probably already in the game.

Doesn't matter though as this is just an incentive to buy the game new, which is a good thing.

As for the Villager Creator, try Lionhead's. Xbox's is a piece of garbage.
