Fable III Lets You Knock Up Your Xbox Live Friends

The cooperative multiplayer mode in Fable II may not have been the role-playing game's highest point—it arrived late and had some notable limitations—but developer Lionhead Studios is giving birth to less compromised sequel, including the ability to get "intimate" online.

The latest issue of the Official Xbox Magazine UK explains that the Xbox 360 exclusive, due this fall, will allow players to know their cooperative partners in the biblical sense, a chance to become intimate with your friends and make some in-game babies.

"The team seems committed to ensuring the [co-op] experience is in no way compromised," says the mag. "You'll be able to enjoy, ahem, intimate moments with your co-op friend and eventually produce offspring together." Guess we can file this feature under "contextual touching" bullet point that Lionhead's been touting.
