Fable III gets launch day pack-in DLC

Fable III will come downloadable content right out the box when it launches on October 26. Each new copy will come with a code that gives you some free items and a unique costume, as well as a completely new dog companion. 

The extra content includes a “Raise Dead” potion for summoning monsters, a free “Slow Time” potion, the Scot outfit (in both male and female varieties), a Highlander Tattoo Set and a Red Setter dog skin. You can notice the theme, right? 

Microsoft Game Studios does this quite a bit with its titles, and I think it’s a much cooler way to fight used sales. Encouraging people to buy new, rather than punishing them for buying used, is far superior and shows a bit more respect for customers. Regardless of what I think, that’s a little extra fun for you if you’re planning to pick it up. 

Destructoid’s Fable III review will arrive on launch day morning.
