Fable four will reject Albion and firearms in favour of a brand new, medieval-themed open world, a attainable leak suggests.
A video glimpsed by a Redditor and amplified by regular leaker Nibel tells the story of a world constructed from the ashes of Albion and Fable 3’s Aurora. The two lands have been “reduced to fables” by a mad king, who rebuilt the Spire and wished for an asteroid to strike the planet.
Eons laters, a medieval-styled world set throughout new continents has sprung up of their place, and a Heroes Guild has survived behind a demon door. In truth the leak describes some very particular hyperlinks to outdated Fable – each the prophet Theresa and Jack of Blades, the antagonist who blinded her, will apparently make appearances.
It’s claimed that your most important quest shall be to forestall the destruction of the planet by a second asteroid, however that it’s solely optionally available – you may ignore that and discover at your personal tempo. The world is “completely open” and lets you construct cities, so there needs to be a lot to do.
Fable four may be performed in first or third-person, closely entails time journey, options an in-depth character creator, incorporates multiplayer, and runs in Unreal Engine. Apparently, anyway. All of the above comes with an enormous ‘apparently’ disclaimer.
Rumours about Fable four are usually not new – the game is claimed to have been in improvement at Playground Games, the Microsoft studio behind Forza Horizon, and we’ve been ready for an E3 announcement for years. Perhaps this’ll be the one. We’ve already seen a reputable leak of a post-Brexit Watch Dogs 3 this morning, so stranger issues have occurred.
