Uniting thrilling stories, exciting combat and heroic quests with the next generation capabilities of the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, Fable Legends is the forthcoming adventure in the genre defining series Fable.
Magic is rife and all manner of creatures and miscreants inhabit the world off the beaten track. Eyes watch the unwary from the shadowy canopy of the forest. Are you brave enough to venture outside the walls of Brightlodge? Will you leave the welcoming taverns and the even more welcoming arms of Betsy (or Brian) the barkeep and strike a new path into the unknown? There are quests and treasure aplenty awaiting you if you do.
ALBION NEEDS HEROES
And you can take on the role of any. Fearless warriors, cunning tricksters, intoxicated brawlers, masters of Will, heartless mercenaries or paragons of virtue, even Chicken chasers (gotta catch ‘em to kick ‘em). But you won’t be sent out to battle the fearsome beasties alone. Indeed that would be the fastest way to have a song written about you – not one you would want repeating though …
Fear not for thy kneecaps! Three heroic comrades will join you. You’ll even be able to personalise your heroes, by kitting them out in new armour and weapons. Some you might even find in the chests scattered around the land, stumbling upon them whilst questing. Lovely, shiny, deadly rapiers, sabres, longswords that you can improve, or infuse with the power of the elements by adding augments.
IF ALL THAT SEEMS A BIT NOBLE …
Maybe playing bad is more up your dark, murderous alley? Villain players get to set traps, command creatures and ambush bothersome do-gooders. Ultimately you can be the big bad thing the citizens of Albion are afraid of. Muster your minions, rally your redcaps, order your ogre to smash those squishy heroes. Doesn’t that sound delicious? Oh the power, the infamy, the tight black leather britches … Have we whetted your appetite?
