Lionhead Studios made a bold choice when it comes to their new Fable Legends in more than one way, but it could very well be a strategy that will pay off big time for the company as well as the franchise in itself. The new game, unlike the previous installments in the Fable series, is a multiplayer oriented team-based game where you can play alone or with your friends with or against the AI. Fable Legends is also one of the first games to be built on Microsoft’s DX12 engine that should give the players some spectacular graphics and performance – hopefully.
Fable Legends will launch on both Xbox One and Windows 10 and the limitation here is of course due to DX12, this is the only place that you’ll find that API. Xbox One gamers have already been able to join the beta games and now PC players will be able to do the same. The Windows 10 beta is scheduled to launch this month and you can still sign up for an invite.
Fable Legends won’t just run on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, it can be played cross-platform on both systems with the same account and everything the way it was. Start on your PC and move on over to the Xbox in the living room later on – or the other way around, you can do it as you want. That could be a great win for the game besides being a completely free to play game. You can purchase cosmetics, but not overpowered winning attributes. The developers stress that you can unlock anything with gameplay alone and that is good news.
The full game is scheduled to be released later this year and until then we can enjoy the new trailer released during Gamescom 2015. It looks like an amazing game, especially with the focus on team play and cross-platform play, but also with the DX12 graphics and overall concept. I think Lionhead Studios has a winner here.
