Lionhead Studios revealed the next entry in the Fable franchise at Gamescom and it is taking it in an exciting new direction.
Fable Legends will be an [amazon_link id=”B00CMQTVMI” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Xbox One[/amazon_link] exclusive title which will feature five-player co-op.
Why five, you may ask?
Well, four friends will take control of four different character classes including a cocky prince character, a burly archer, a female mage and another female with a rather huge wooden shield to take on the forces of evil in the land of Albion. The twist comes in the fifth player who will be playing the role of villain. They will be able to view the world from a top-down perspective and will have control over the enemies the heroes face as well as setting up traps and other nefarious means to defeat the doers of good.
Intrigued yet? I know I am.
You are able to play Fable Legends as a single-player experience with AI taking over the other four roles in the game, but the game is being built to be fully enjoyed with five friends online.
No release date was given for Fable Legends. Check out the trailer below narrated by the wonderful Michael Gambon, who should really do narration for everything from airplane safety videos to feminine hygiene. His voice is that soothing.
