With E3 2019 just around the corner, it’s that time of the year when leaks and rumours run rampant. The latest game to be joining this yearly trend seems to be an alleged Fable reboot for Xbox One.
The rumour, which began on the Xbox One Reddit page, initially included a video that showed off what appeared to be an unannounced Fable title. Although the video has since been taken down, the leaker kindly wrote down several key features that may be present in the forthcoming Fable title. An excerpt of the post can be read down below:
- First/Third Person
- In Depth character creator
- Completely Open
- No guns
- Can ignore main quest and never become a hero
- Players can build towns, ties into main quest heavily if you get the bad ending and fail
- Unreal Engine
Reddit user LagSwag1 went on to detail the world of the alleged Fable title, stating,
“Albion and Aurora are gone. “Lands reduced to fables.” The Spire was rebuilt and used by a mad king to wish that an asteroid would strike the planet. He also wished it would happen again in the far future. Eons later and everything is new (medieval themed, new continents) and you have to stop the destruction of the planet again. Theresa and a Heroes Guild are preserved on another planet via a demon door. Time Travel heavily involved in play. Jack of Blades returns.”LagSwag1
Of course, especially without video evidence, it’s hard to say how likely any of the above is in actually being true. However, it has been quite some time since a Fable game was released — making E3 2019 an excellent opportunity to unveil the future of the dormant franchise.
