Fable lives in on the form of a new computer card game. Flaming Fowl Studios and developer Mediatonic officially announced this week that Fable Fortune will launch next month for Xbox One and Windows PC. The new game is a competitive and cooperative collectible card game that is themed after the iconic Fable game series. You can also check out one of the game’s earlier trailers in the player below.
Players who still want a Fable fix will be able to experience the game later in July. Players will be able to go to Albion with a Founder’s Pack. The new game combines CCG systems with some of the franchise’s most iconic moments, including the heroes, villains, armies of peasants, and also necromancy.
Players can choose from one of six different heroes and use a diverse collection of powers and cards. The game features both a classic PVP mode or a fully integrated co-op mode. Players can transform their powers, alter their card affects and then turn the tables on their opponents.
The Founder’s Pack for the game is available for $14.99 and is valued at $40 worth of in-game items, with 20 packs of cards to open. This includes the exclusive Flaming Fowl Trophy Card and the rare Giant Egg card. The game will also be free to play later this year. But the Founder’s Pack is available for those who want to play early on.
The game is currently available in closed beta. However, it will hit Xbox One and Windows PC on July 11.
