Fable Novel Brings DLC Code for Fable 3 Weapon

We’ve seen videogames ship with books before (or digital versions of books, anyway), but here is a book that’s going to ship with videogame content. has a listing for "Fable: The Balverine Order," a novel set in the Fable universe that’s apparently set for release on October 5. And if a Fable novel sounds like something you want to read, you’ll get a small bonus with it: a download code for an exclusive Fable 3 weapon.
As you can see on the book’s cover image, there’s a blurb that promises a "code to unlock unique weapon in Fable 3." The cover also shows "The Balverine Order" is written by novelist and comic book writer Peter David.

OK, so the book gives you a Fable 3 weapon. But what exactly is it about? "The days of magic and adventure are fading away, giving way to the age of industry and science," reads the novel’s product description. "As the aged last Hero sits upon the throne of Albion, two friends -- the privileged Thomas and his loyal servant, John -- set out for the East in search of a legendary beast: the vicious, rarely-seen balverine. But their desire for adventure may be their ultimate undoing -- because their quarry has just found them..."

"The Balverine Order" is priced at $9.99, which actually makes it pretty reasonable as far as DLC goes, considering there’s a book that comes with it. Fable 3, meanwhile, is set for release on October 26.
