Fable Heroes is rumour no more – first screens, video

Monday, 5th March 2012 14:01 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Following leaks over the weekend, Microsoft’s officially made Fable Heroes a real thing, announcing it at the Xbox Spring Showcase in San Francisco last week.

The game will be an action hack-and-slash effort with a “unique” art style not seen in past Fable games. It will be entirely co-op themed.

Co-op will allow up to four players to get together through local play or Xbox Live, with players working to together to defeat enemies, but also competing to collect gold coins in the process. Coins collected will help level up your character and unlock rewards for Fable: The Journey.

Heroes, made by a team at Lionhead who’ve been “fans of the franchise from day one,” will contain heroes, regions and enemies that fans of the series will recognise.

As you progress through the game and level up, your character will unlock more difficulty levels and mini-games.

Get the first screens and video below. No date as yet.

    My comment stands from the other story about this.. meh dout it will have much content either (one thing I think that lionhead has lacked in) I mean look at castle crashers (1 guy all artwork and 4-5 other guys coding yeah took them few years to make)

    But small team of 15-20 people or whatever at Lionhead should be able to make a big with that much content for a timeframe that we could guess they have been working on it. So even if it was a full CC clone it’d would still be much shorter in stuff then CC. Fable 3 wasn’t too bad that amount of area should be min at a push these days for single player (well co-op but meh) games.

    Look how big the land mass is in Kingdoms of Amalur. Or Darksiders 2 (Well I’ve seen more of it then most people but it’s huge from what I’ve seen) Meh Microsoft kill off our british studios.. look at RARE. -_- *rant over* lol
