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.

stuff like this should be free.

Posted by jonnyboy

This should come with a free punch in the balls to teach you a lesson.

Posted by essi2

Hmm, stuff like this should really be free.... but having a Shepard would be kinda cool.

This is about on the same level as horse armor.

Posted by RaceKickfist

ughhhhhhhhh lionhead, you are not making the job of "fable apologeticist" very easy.

Posted by Getz

How much time you think they had their artist work on these? Three hours? Two? 
 
C'mon Lionhead...

Wow...Fable...you're taking every opportunity to redeem yourself and flushing it...

Fable 3 was good but the DLC kinda sucks, lionhead is going all out to micro transaction the shit out of its customers and the in game advertising for it is fucking annoying, "there seems to be new items in the shop sir"...

Posted by Zeemod

Just what the game needed to redeem itself, good call Lionhead!

No, because it's no where near as expensive. 
 
I actually liked Fable 3, but the way they've handled the DLC is really, really bad.  The game has problems that needed to be ironed out and fixed, instead they've been focusing on this crappy microtransactions that add nothing to the game.

Where's the good DLC Lionhead? More quests and Places to explore, nope..just freaking skins for a dog.

Posted by Catarrhal

All this talk of horse armor--screw that, how 'bout some dog armor?

Posted by Skald

I bet they could make even more money if they sold something that wasn't complete crap.

Posted by sixpin

As much as I feel like the cosmetic dog re-skins are a bad thing... I kinda want my Fable 3 dog to look like my actual dog. I have a German Shepherd. Sigh...

Posted by Doctorchimp

No rottweiler dog?? 
 
Fable 3 truly is garbage.

Posted by Landon

Here is you some more stuff that should have already been in the game.

Posted by MeatSim

No Basset Hounds? get out of here Fable 3.

Posted by JackSukeru

There's already a Boxer in the game isn't there? Then why would you need anything else?

Posted by TheCheese33

No miniature schnauzer?

Posted by Krakn3Dfx

Cause that's what's wrong with this game, not enough dog types.

Posted by Sammo21
@Hailinel: Horse armor that is supposed to help you attack enemies but looks like a moron holding its tongue out.
Posted by Sammo21
@extremeradical: Well, are we talking about Fable 3 or the DLC now...cause that could go for either.
Posted by tourgen

HAHAHAHAH

Posted by MetalGearSunny

Yeah, focus on the dog rather than fixing that latter half of the game.

Edited by FritzDude

Stop releasing micro's and release a proper DLC with new quests and items, where these dog potions will be included. It's hard to keep track on the DLC's in the longrun, it's too expensive, and did i mention: IT'S TOO FUCKING EXPENSIVE!

Posted by KillerBears

The most impressive thing since horse armor

Posted by umdesch4

Next DLC will have sharks for you to jump.

Posted by Koobz

They need to Old Yeller this mofo now.  Pretend it never happened and make Fable 4 a game that isn't made of 60% suck.  For what it's worth I used to be a total Fable fanboy until this game, but ugh.  And then they're putting salt in the wound with this shitty  DLC.

Edited by NMC2008

Why do people complain about DLC? What is someone who bought Fable 3 was like "I like the dog but I wish I had a poodle instead", are those people idiots for wanting a poodle? Are Lionhead stupid for supplying the Poodle? What is the problem? You don't have to buy it so why complain about it? Oh wait, I know why, because gamers(people in general)like to bitch about any and everything they can, like it keeps them alive or some shit.

@FritzDude:
Agreed, I loved how they did the DLC in Fable2 & it made a lot of sense. Then again that game also made a lot of sense plus Chesty was creepy & mean where as in Fable3 kind of a pushover.

@NMC2008: But aren't you just bitching at the bitchers who bitch at the bitches in this canine conundrum?
Posted by NMC2008
@snetErz:  
*sigh* 
Yeah............ I am. :(
Posted by Faint

so this is a game made for kids.... right?

Posted by John1912

Yea, Peter is now on my shit list.  I once thought of him and Lionhead as a great company.  Now they plain suck, and he is a over promising babbling moron.

Posted by Afroman269

lol

Posted by jim_dandy

Too bad the dog was fucking useless.
 
HEY THERE'S SOME TREASURE BURIED HERE, BUT I'LL JUST BE STUCK ON THIS STALACTITE AND KEEP BARKING, OKAY
 
I fucking hated that dog and cursed Peter Molyneux and it's little dog face every time it glitched out. (which was always)

Posted by 2HeadedNinja

dog skins? ... for money? ... seriously?

At least horse armor had an actual effect on the game... Dog skins seem to be completely cosmedic. 
 
That, and I'd much rather give my money to Bethesda over Petey Molyneux...

 Sigh.
Posted by Paulrus

Poodle bites. Poodle chews it.

Posted by metal_mad

is this the new horse armour controversy 

Posted by Gamer_152

Dog skins DLC? Come on Lionhead, you're better than this.

Fable 3 is garbage.

Posted by UItros

 Why did I expect something good?

Posted by Gunner612

This DLC better be included with the PC version when it comes out...

Posted by guthwulf

What a waste of money. Why don't they offer a decent game as DLC instead.

Posted by Bloodgraiv3

Fuck yeah can't wait!!!
