More Infomation Keeps Pouring Out
More rumors have come out concerning Fable 4. A large amount of “leaks” and rumors have been spilling out lately. Some have been debunked entirely, while other rumors still stand as being plausible. However, there has been a fresh batch of information that has recently come out. This info states that the game will be a fully open world with high in-depth character customization. There will be no muskets or firearms of any kind. You can build a town and totally ignore the main quest. You never have to become a hero. Multiplayer with be available. The player will be able to switch between a first and third person camera. And lastly, Fable will be made on the Unreal Engine.
Albion and Aurora, the two main continents, are gone. There are new continents that have a Medieval theme. The player is tasked to save the world and Theresa, the Heros Guild, and Jack of Blades are all present in the plot. Time traveling will be also playing a heavy role in the game.
How these characters weave into the story is still unclear. This info is only rumors after all. However, if they do turn out to be true then Fable 4 will definitely be the most ambitious of the franchise. A truly open world was something that the series had always lacked. An open world was something that was promised to players as well but was never delivered.
The last Fable game came out almost 10 years ago. It will be interesting to see how fans of the older Fable games respond if they do in fact unveil Fable 4 at E3 this month. Fable was always a good middle of the road franchise, but it always fell short of being great. Maybe this time will be different.
