Get Your Poodle On With Fable III's Dog Breeds DLC

Three more dog breeds are being introduced to Albion via download.

In a recent blog post titled "New Dog Breeds out now," Lionhead Studios announced that... new dog breeds are out now for Fable III.  
 
To get just a tad more specific, three new dog skins have been introduced to the game via DLC. For the mere price of 240 Microsoft Points, you can morph your unimpressive mutt into a Doberman Pincher, a Poodle, or a German Shepherd. 

Oh, and there's a "FREE" Santa hat available as well via download. Get your first look at all these fascinating additions just below.

Does the new dog skin do anything extra beneficial?  Or is this just for cosmetic purposes?

No, it's just "okay", which is basically unforgivable given how great the first two were.

What the...? I have absolutely no interest in Fable III (or the first two, really), but as an avid listener of the Bombcast, I'd say this is the last fucking thing this game needs to add to make it a better experience.

There appears to be some new Bits and Bobs in the Sanctuary Shop..

All I can really say is LOL. Why DLC like these is priced I don't even know. Stuff like new dog skins should already be in the game or for free.

I like how everyone commenting on the Lionhead post about these DLC dogs are way into it.  "Nice, I'll probably purchase soon!"

REVOLUTIONARY

I'll probably never play Fable III again, but hey, free Santa hat!

Seriously a poodle, who would download that???????????????

Posted by PhatSeeJay

Yeah sure that's great but how about a DLC that deals with the hundreds of days you skip as a ruler?!

yeah I all ready sold my collectors edition copy as soon as I got all 1000...fuck fable and its nickle and dime shit. I can bet you all these skins were taken out of the game before release.

This is exactly what Fable 3 needed, now it is a much better game.

Until they release a DLC that re-skins my dog into an eight-week old attack kitten, my wallet stays closed.

Did they come with dog armor?

Yes. Fable III needed a poodle that I can buy for space bucks. Brilliant!

I tried playing Fable one and jsut got so lost in the little tiny quests and never made it very far...bt it seemed really good

Posted by JuggaloAcidman

The dog pack sounds like a horrible value... But it's not nearly as bad as Tron's DLC... 800 points for a Sam Flynn multiplayer skin.... REALLY! REALLY!

Posted by spalka621

Do I get the hat?

Posted by Artisan88

Can I morph the game into something I'd want to buy??

Posted by Shindiggah

meh, it'd be worth it if it came with a few more breeds, either way stupid add on is stupid.

I bet you say this about everything DLC related. Way to be edgy =D These days, DLC plans are made early enough that no, that shit probably wasn't in the retail package at any point. 
 
Also, is this better or worse than Horse Armor?
Posted by Amp

Is this as bad as Horse Armor? I think so.

Posted by Elusionar

If they let me cross a buldog with a shitsu i am all in!
Posted by Jimi

Horse armor.

Posted by UltorOscariot

No Labrador Retriever?  Really?

Posted by sins_of_mosin

Give the Basset Hound some respect you brit jerk offs!

Posted by ContrarianKing

At least it isn't horse armor.

I still miss Populus, Magic carpet and Syndicate (wars, multiplayer). Mmmm, those were the days.
