Through a tweet in which he reminded us that there is less and less left for the Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct (of which we reviewed the event date and time here), Microsoft announced the presence of one of the brand’s most The anticipated game is indicated. , We are referring to the new Fable from Playground Games (responsible for Forza Horizon) which, although it was already announced, has not been seen since the summer of 2020.
In his tweet, one of the tunes from the fable can be heard in the background and the person who recorded everything follows the luminous path that leads us to the missions in the games of the franchise. It would be strange that after both tracks, Fable didn’t say no to an appearance at the Xbox Showcase.
Waiting for fiction for three years
Before announcing this new installment, it should be acknowledged that the fable hasn’t exactly been treated the same way over the years. From Fable Legends’ canceled multiplayer trials to mediocre exploitation of the brand through mediocre works (Heroes, The Journey, Fortune, and even Anniversary, none of which exceed a 70 on Metacritic). However, before long it was a franchise to do chest stretching. The talk wasn’t about Halo, Gears, and Forza, but about Halo, Gears, and Fable. We’re talking about that significance level. That’s when Microsoft announced a proper reboot and one of the most deserving teams in the current Xbox family (as we said earlier, Playground Games, acclaimed makers of Forza Horizon).
Unfortunately, three years after its release, we continue with nothing more than that early trailer for that cinematic which praised the color and humor characteristic of Albion. We cross our fingers that this changes and Fable is just another trick up Microsoft’s sleeve for the next Xbox Showcase. It will help show that Phil Spencer’s new way of studying works. Because the playground has flourished under his tenure and seeing him successfully make the jump from driving to RPG will instill in us the confidence that is shaky these days after the failures of Redfall and the blockade over the Activision Blizzard purchase. we will see.
