Fable 3 Glitch in The Game

How to Fix Fable 3 Glitch The Game Quest

So as you may know fable 3 has lots of glitches. This is normal for a new game but when hundreds have stopped playing because they can't play because of glitches sticking them in quest and even in thin air just hovering their. Fable 3 Glitches are quite comman.

One fable 3 glitch that is having a lot of complaints and even I experienced this. The quest is called the game. The mission works great up to were you face the 6 wolves that attack you at the tower. If you touch the stairs or whatever else you can do to screw it up. What happens is the gold trail disappears and doesn't let you enter the castle to save the princess.

Updated ways to fix glitch that works for some people.

  • Enter a multiplayer game with a friend, that helps reset the mission sometimes.
  • If it's not to late just shut off the Xbox and start mission over again.
  • Try shooting the wolves or casting a spell. (This worked for me it went into the slow motion and my gold trail appeared again.


Update for Fable 3 Glitches from Lionhead

I have heard that Lionhead will be releasing a patch to the many thousands of unhappy players that this has affected. I think they should develop a new sword and prize it to people but that might make another glitch.

So the date is November 25th 2010 and still there are tons of glitches with no patch that I have seen yet.  This is a really poor decision by lionhead since I know at least a dozen or so people who have returned the game and won't try again with it.  Me I have gone back to playing fable 1 and 2, and black ops.

opened the front door from inside a house in the underground and the door opened, trapping me between the wall and door, then whilst pressing buttons in an attempt to get out of this trap, i ended up "in a nees bent, one leg outstretched slightly and arms out to the side as if jumping down". Looks like i'm falling through clouds.

Hey Phil and Steven what you can try is to have a friend join your game and see if they can complete the quest for you. This has helped for a lot of people and has helped me in a couple of the glitches.

I'm stuck in aurora, the part near a letter that says: something about the dreams. I can go to the sanctuary, but when I come back I'm stuck at that stone again. I can't move or even interact with my dog. I can't even fast travel to other place until I complete the current quest which is return to Kalin.. blah blah.. I don't want to start a new game again because I've gone too far.

My wife plays fable 3. When she gets to certain points that the game decides to "auto save", the xbox pops up message that states "disc is unreadable." I have cleaned the xbox, tried other games. It seems to only be fable 3. Even fable 2 runs well! The disc is brand new and has no dirt, oil, scratches, etc.

Hey Todd I would return it for a even exchange.


RoccosMom 5 years ago

I have a glitch in the "flowers" quest in Aurora. I've located all of the flowers except 1 purple. I even re-traced Shifting Sands 3 times. Every time my dog barks and points, the "treasure" icon shows up over his head but there is no treasure. I've saved and re-entered the area, I've even left and done other quests, but it's still doing this. I don't have any other friends online that play, so I don't have the option of joining games or anyone joining mine. I'm not loosing all my progress as I've almost finished. Do you think if I go to that spot, and do a hard shut down, re-boot that this might fix it or just delete all my progress?? Any other suggestions?

I hate to say this but a lot of the fixes that worked are still the same from inviting a friend to finish quest, shutting off xbox hoping it didn't autosave, Still waiting for lionhead to put a patch out i think it's been almost 6 months now this is horrible.

I'm stuck at wheel of misfortune glitch. And the only way was able to finish ahievements was delete traitors keep dlc from memory and then was able to enter mult player as henchmen and finish ahievements.


Beth 5 years ago

I am stuck at the Wheel of Misfortune!! This is ridiculous! That among other glitches have been a headache for me ever since downloading Traitor's Keep!! i.e. gliding along when playing in someone else's game, lagging behind during waves of enemies when playing in co-op mode. and now this! I have over 80 hours put into this and now have to start over from scratch. Has anyone found a patch yet???
