Peter Molyneux has said that the Fable series should no longer be considered an RPG, but more of an action/adventure series.

This revelation was announced during X10 last night, when Lionhead was showing Fable III to attendees.

“I’m not sure I even call Fable an RPG anymore,” he said (via CVG). “Certainly not a 1990s RPG, for sure. In a way, you could look at it and say it’s like an action adventure.

“There’s a lot of drama, there a lot of story, there’s a lot of emotion in there – but with leveling up. I love that leveling up. I’m not the sort of person that likes being given a pre-planned character and told ‘this is you no matter what'” .

Other than the HUD changes announced last night, the expression system has been removed, with the developers opting for a touch system instead.

Now, instead of frowning, smiling and the like, you will be able to drag, fondle, hug, shake, and more.
