Rumors

New ‘Baldur’s Gate’ in the Works?

Published

 on

The acclaimed RPG series has been MIA since the days of the PS2. Recently it was said that the games in the series would be coming to Steam, but the latest bit of speculation, coming from BeefJack, apparently has little to do with those rumors. On baldursgate.com there’s quite a bit of activity on the once dormant site.

 

 

A big picture of a skull is the main attraction. Just now a block of text has been added beneath it:

“The Lord of Murder shall perish, but in his doom he shall spawn a score of mortal progeny, chaos will be sown by their passage.”

So sayeth the wise Alaundo

The page’s source code also has something to say:

February 28, 2012
Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine

For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory.

And then… it returned. Better than it was before.

The domain for the site was also registered to Trent Oster, one of the developers who worked on the original Baldur’s Gate, who is also a former Bioware designer. Right now the leading source of speculation is directed at a new entry in the highly acclaimed franchise, but other rumors have it as a HD remake of the PS2 classic or even a f2p Facebook game. Whatever it is, fans are excited and according to Geoff Keighley there are quite a few announcements coming in March. Could this be one of them?

RUMOR: Fable 4 Story, Gameplay Details Leak Ahead of E3

Published

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.
