Fable III launches next week (sort of)

Smartphone app called 'Kingmaker' will allow you to earn gold for the game itself.

Kingmaker, a Smartphone application for Fable III, will launch next week reports CVG.

The description for the application reads: "The kingdom of Albion is in turmoil. Two rival armies are fighting for total dominion: the tyrant king's Royals and the revolutionary Rebels. And now the battle has spilled onto the wretched streets of Great Britain! For this is where the wondrous world of Fable meets the real world. Where the battleground is your town, and your only weapon is your smartphone."

"Your mission, should you be foolish enough to accept it, is to plant virtual flags for the Royals or the Rebels, and claim power-ups in locations throughout the United Kingdom... For every flag you plant, and every power up you claim, you shall earn gold coins, which you shall then be able to transfer into the Fable III game on your Xbox 360!"

October 1st is listed as the release date for Kingmaker while while the game itself is due on October 26th.
