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.
Fable Legends, the free-to-play RPG by Lionhead that was set in the Fable universe has been cancelled, as reported by Lionhead on their forums:
Gamescom kicked off in a large way with an absolute wealth of information to take in on day one, including exclusives galore from both the Microsoft and Sony conference. Here’s the highlights, news and trailers in condensed forms for anyone who couldn’t keep up to date with the information overload!
When Lionhead unveiled their final installment of Fable, or at least the last to have Peter Molyneux on board, hearts fell at the realization that it would be a Kinect game. Yet, after working through the game’s entirety, that’s undeniably not the issue with the final product. Fable: The Journey is a fantastic addition to the Kinect library and a good bit of fun that utilizes the Kinect’s motion-tracking extremely well. Detailed environments with that signature Fable stylization, a good sound track, and carefully conceived controls transform it into a great on-rails shooter. Yet, as a possible end to a franchise of RPGs, it falls short when standing beside its predecessors. A storyline that tried to accomplish too much in too little time, in a game that is little more than a group of prescripted battle sequences, proved to be the deadweight that sunk the game. This is not the climactic close to a franchise that prided itself on choices and scope and pushing limits.
Most of the games featuring the usage of Microsoft’s Kinect have controls which can easily be replicated on the controller, not to mention work better.
