Lionhead unleashed two new Fable Legends heroes upon the world at E3, surprising fans who assumed there would be no new playable characters until the game is released later this year for Xbox One and PC.
Fable, which has set hearts afire with its fantasy co-op combat, is introducing a bruiser with otherworldly power, and a healer who?s also solid with a bow.
Let?s meet Malice and Celeste, shall we?
Malice is a hero who used to be a villain, forced into heroism by a curse that makes him do good deeds. His original body is gone, but his consciousness is bound to a suit of armor held together by magic. He retains some of his villainous ways, however, enabling him to summon minions from the corpses of dead warriors to aid him in battle. He wields a hefty mace and shield that do some real damage to his opponents. We?re told he?s one of the hardest heroes to control in the game, so player beware when becoming one with Malice.
Celeste is one of the most unique heroes we?ve ever seen in an RPG. She is primarily a healer, exerting many powerful spells to help her allies in a hurry. While most healers are considered inept in battle, Celeste packs a mean punch with ranged weaponry, making her one of the deadliest healers we?ve ever seen. She?s meant to stay in the back of the squad, allowing the best use of her ranged weaponry. Celeste is a force with which to be reckoned, and players who take her for a spin will not regret it.
The current list of heroes for Fable Legends now totals six, and there may be more coming. Whether you prefer Malice?s dark magic or Celeste?s healing skills, both warriors will be formidable additions to a good team.
