Info: Fable Legends is a cooperative online action RPG developed by Lionhead Studios. The game unites the classic gameplay that players have come to love from the series with all of the next-generation capabilities of Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. For the first time, grab your friends and go on adventures – up to four Heroes can cooperatively discover the quests and stories of Albion. Or, play the villain where you can mastermind the game in real time. Fable Legends takes advantage of the graphical processing power of Xbox One, and when coupled with Unreal Engine 4, delivers a rich and beautiful world.
• Rediscover The Magic of Fable
Return to Albion, a picturesque land full of thrilling stories, exciting combat, and high adventure. It’s no surprise that millions of players have visited and adored the welcoming countryside of this once upon a time storyland. “Fable Legends” brings you to a place where history, myth, and folklore are practically the same thing. Of course you’ll also find monsters, villains, and even the occasional disaster, but you shouldn’t take it too seriously. Albion is a unique fantasy land where epic, tragic, and comedic stories all combine for a one of a kind experience.
• New Ways to Play the Hero
In “Fable Legends”, you’re never completely alone. You can play the game single player, with a party of three heroic AI companions that follow your lead through stories and adventures. Or you can play cooperatively with up to three friends and discover the game’s quests and content together. Play whatever style you want, when you want. After all, you’re the Hero. And just what kind of Hero you choose to play is up to you. “Fable Legends” takes you back to a time when Albion is teeming with Heroes, so there’s bound to be one for you. Fearless warriors. Cunning tricksters. Masters of Will. Paragons of virtue. Heartless mercenaries. Intoxicated brawlers. Chicken chasers. They’re all here, and many more besides. You’ll be able to customize your abilities, alter your appearance, and advance your Hero by earning experience and finding new armour, weapons, and treasures.
• Play “Fable Legends” Across Devices
Experience cross-device play between Windows 10 devices and Xbox One. Play with friends and match-make on either platform with any combination of Windows 10 and Xbox One players in exciting 4v1 multiplayer matches. Microsoft-powered, cloud-synced player profiles allow you to have access to all of your items and progress on either platform – giving gamers the flexibility to play how and where they want.
• Or Is Evil Your Thing?
Fable has always presented opportunities for mischief and villainy, and in “Fable Legends” we’re going to offer a way to play the bad guy as never before. The Villain player takes control of the many creatures, minions, traps, and environmental hazards that Heroes must overcome. Villain play combines elements of strategic decision making and tactical control. When those pitiful Heroes enter an area, you’ll choose which minions are sent into battle and where to place these creatures to maximize their effectiveness. Once the fight begins, you issue the orders for your creatures to execute: telling them where to go, which Hero to attack, and what abilities to use to ensure your evil plans come to fruition.
• All for One. Or One Takes All.
You can play with other people in a four-player cooperative experience or as the Villain. Your Heroic party could be all human players, or a mix of players and AI-controlled Heroes. You can switch easily between single player and multiplayer styles of play whenever you decide, or when a friend signs on.
As a Villain, you can challenge parties of human players, AI opponents, or mixed groups. The combination of experiences make “Fable Legends” into a unique experience for 5 players: 4 Heroes vs 1 Villain. Which will you choose?
