Fable III Kingmaker launches today

Here's your chance to grab Fable III cash before the actual game launches.

Fable III Kingmaker, a new Smartphone app by Fable III developers Lionhead, launches today.

Kingmaker allows you to sign up as a Rebel or Royalist, and you then use your phone to plant geo-located flags that can be exchanged for gold and items in Fable III itself.

"To be able to earn gold you can use in your Fable III game, and to check-in and claim land for your side is brilliant for both Fable III and Xbox 360," said Peter Molyneux, Lionhead chief. "We all love the innovation and feeling of being connected that Kingmaker brings to gamers."

You can see how the game works in the video below. Think of Kingmaker as the equivalent to Fable II's Pub Games, a cheeky and fun way of grabbing a headstart for when the main game itself is released.
