Fable Legends Announced for Xbox One

Posted on August 20, 2013 AT 03:08am

Following domain registrations yesterday, Microsoft has officially announced Fable Legends for Xbox One at its Gamescom showcase event.

The game will be set in the world of Albion and support up to four player co-op. Users can choose to either take on the role of the hero or the villain. Developer Lionhead also revealed that there will be SmartGlass functionality, but this wasn’t detailed.

“Prepare to return to the magical and mysterious fantasy world of Albion, only this time with up to three other Heroes as you embark on quests, slay monsters and discover new weapons, armor and treasure to upgrade your character with,” developer Lionhead states. “”Fable Legends” empowers you to play the way you want. Hone your skills in swordplay, or specialize in the arcane arts as a wizard or witch. Play cooperatively with friends on Xbox Live, venture through Albion solo with AI companions, or create a party comprised of both human and computer allies. Switching between single and multiplayer sessions is seamless, allowing you or your friends to hop in and out whenever you decide.

“”Fable” has given you the freedom to be as righteous or morally bankrupt as you want in the past, but for the first time in “Fable” history, “Fable Legends” gives you the chance to embrace villainy and assume the role of an evil mastermind. Playing a Hero utilizes the classic “Fable” style of gameplay, but as a Villain, you’ll combine strategy and tactics to control an army of minions against the Heroes. Command your troops in real-time and carefully manage your minions’ unique abilities to ensure the forces of evil prevail.”
