A new Fable game reveal might be incoming. Microsoft has registered multiple domain names with Fable Legends in the title including FableLegends.com and FableLegends.net.

Superannuation a blogger for Kotaku tweeted "Microsoft moved some new Fable domains onto their servers." http://whois.domaintools.com/fablelegends.net shows Microsoft as the owner administrator.

Fable Anniversary, the redux of the original Fable game, is coming to Xbox 360 in the next quarter and is a great way to introduce newcomers to the franchise. The Fable forums have been relaunched on the Lionhead website and Microsoft have teased an exclusive game reveal at Gamescom this week. If it does turn out to be Fable Legends it would likely be an Xbox One game that is released in time for Christmas 2014. Here's hoping! :)

What was so bad about Fable III exactly? I thought it was good.

I did get it for free in the Gold promotion but I bought the DLC off the strength of the main game.

I'm going to make a wild prediction and say this isn't a game, but a video series similar to Halo Legends.

They should just release Fable II every three years or so.

The first was the best though. They've got progressively worse

Nah, Fable II was the best. Fable III wasn't as good as II, but it's since been unfairly condemned, IMO. Disappointing villager interactions and a dreadful ending aside (oh, and a cop-out for what would have been a powerful narrative beat, too) it wasn't all that bad. I enjoyed a great deal of the game's first half.

There's a new Fable! Lionhead Studios is working on an exclusive new entry in its action role-playing series. Called Fable Legends, the game is apparently co-op and allows players to be a hero or a villain. The game is headed to Xbox One.

http://kotaku.com/the-next-fable-is-called-fable-legends-1170718721

The game will return players to Albion, which will be an online world, and let them take on the role of a hero or villain. There'll be some sort of SmartGlass functionality, although this hasn't yet been detailed.

Is it naive to think the game will actually look like that? Something like Deep Down was just as impressive and was in-game (supposedly).

Today at gamescom, Microsoft Studios and renowned UK developer Lionhead Studios unveiled the next installment in the epic “Fable” saga – “Fable Legends” – exclusively for Xbox One. 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.

“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.

Using Xbox SmartGlass for your tablet or smartphone also enables several gameplay enhancing features. Heroes can use it to track game progress, learn more about quests, and more. As a Villain, however, you can use Xbox SmartGlass as a second screen for your Xbox One, allowing you to wage war against Hero players as you sit beside them in couch co-op.

Nice screens Monkey Man! Sure the trailer is CGI but it works as a appetiser - and I love that Fable music and Dumbledore(?) voiceover!

Yes Fable III dropped the ball. It wasn't that the game engine was broken or anything like that but it was that it needed the director and playtest team to spend an extra 3 months playtesting it to fix the bad design decisions. Basically everything Angry Joe said in his video. It did feature 2 player co-op but it wasn't particularly useful because one person was effectively a guest in the other person's game
and it didn't really make much difference and felt tacked on. Fable Legends has 4 player co-op but now with next-gen hardware it would be great if this is deeply integrated and there are multiplayer specific quests or quest that only work with the help of others.

So Microsoft remove the need for the Xbox One to check-in online every 24 hours; then they make all their games online only! :lol:

Fable Legends makes full use of the Xbox One's cloud capabilities, and so will only be playable online.
