Fable 4 will abandon its typical setting of Albion and firearm combat for a brand new, medieval-themed open-world, a possible leak suggests.
A video of the upcoming game has supposedly been viewed by reddit user LagSwag1 who quickly shared the information.
The screenshot below appears to show a brief story synopsis of a new world built upon 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.
Now in a new era of a medieval-styled world spanning new continents and a Heroes Guild has survived behind a demon door. The leak also appears to describe specific old Fable links such as prophet Theresa and Jack of Blades. However, whether or not these links will be main features of gameplay or if they are alluded to as myths, history, or lore is unclear.
Fable 4 will feature first or third-person camera options, features in-depth character creator, incorporates multiplayer, and also strongly relies on time travel, perhaps as a mode of fast travel.
Though, again, not officially confirmed, the leak suggests the game will also benefit from using the Unreal Engine.
Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has taken over the mantel of producing the next Fable game, so how these leaked details may relate to the game remains to be seen. If the leak is accurate, fans can look forward to an update at Microsoft’s E3 press conference June 9.
