As part of the Xbox Games Showcase, the return of the legendary brand Fable was unveiled: A chic render trailer is supposed to get you excited for a new game. The last part of the popular series was published ten years ago.
It has been almost ten years since we were able to play a full game from the Fable series: Fable 3 was released on October 26, 2010 for PC and Xbox 360 – since then fans have been waiting for a worthy successor. Fable: The Journey was more of a gimmick for motion control Kinect, while the online game Fable Legends was rescheduled in 2016 before release. Shortly afterwards, the end of the Fable Studio Lionhead buried many hopes. But that changed in 2018: rumors about a reboot of the series, from the Forza developers at Studio Playgrounds. At the end of the Xbox Games Showcase on July 23, 2020, the time had finally come: A new fable was unveiled with an atmospheric trailer:
Back to the roots by Fable – with the same sense of humor
In the render trailer without in-game scenes, a voice tells of heroes and villains, stories and their ends. The speaker himself sounds like a British storyteller, which fits perfectly with the vibe of previous games that were strongly influenced by British culture. The black and humorous end of the video also suggests that the creators of the new part know what makes Fable so charming. The days of industrial revolution also seem to be over: The trailer shows a classic fantasy world again, not the smoking factories that we saw in Fable 3.
No substance yet – hype anyway?
The announcement of a new part of the Fable series definitely causes enthusiasm among fans, but some gamers are disappointed that the trailer is basically a big "nothing burger": no game scenes, no release date, no information about Story or to the protagonist. It is only clear that the game should appear for Xbox Series X and PC.
