Video: Microsoft announce Xbox One-exclusive Fable Legends
Latest news from Gamescom includes the full roster of launch titles for the Xbox One
Microsoft have announced that the next installment in the Fable series, Fable Legends, will be an Xbox One exclusive, and have released a new trailer for the game (see below).
As usual in the series, Fable Legends will unleash players into the world of Albion where they can become a hero or a villain, and choose whether to specialise in swordplay or magic.
However, the game promises to enhance the villain-experience, offering players the chance to “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.”
Developed by UK-based Lionhead Studios, Fable Legends also promises “seamless” switching between single and multiplayer sessions and the use of Xbox SmartGlass to turn your smartphone into a second screen.
The news is the latest from Microsoft at Gamescom, with the company also announcing the first details of their indie publishing scheme for the Xbox One, named ID@Xbox.
Microsoft have also announced the full roster of launch titles for the Xbox One , including the latest franchise juggernauts (including Call of Duty, Battlefield, Assassin’s Creed) and a smattering of new IP titles (Watch Dogs and Ryse being the most anticipated).
Other new included a new trailer of ‘Gladiator’ mode in sword-and-sandals hack-and-slash title Ryse: Son of Rome. The arena-based mode sees your character fight waves of enemies in order to fill an audience entertainment meter.
