Microsoft Game Studios today announced that Fable: The Lost Chapters is currently in development for Windows and is expected to reach store shelves this fall. Fable: The Lost Chapters will feature a host of enhancements from its top-selling Xbox version, including new quests to conquer, areas to explore, creatures to slay and story elements to discover. The original Fable sold more than 1.4 million copies and was highly acclaimed, earning numerous awards from the industry's top print, broadcast and online outlets. Fable: The Lost Chapters is being developed by world-renowned Lionhead Studios.
Based on the best-selling award-winning Xbox title, Fable: The Lost Chapters is now fully optimized for the Windows platform, complete with expanded content, greater customization, new quests and enhanced graphics. In this groundbreaking role-playing adventure game from Lionhead Studios, every action determines a character’s skills, appearance and morality. A character’s life story is created from childhood through to adulthood and on to old age. One can grow from an inexperienced child into the most powerful being in the world, spoken of by all and immortalized in legend. As additional story and side quests await, so too does the path of righteousness, as well as the life of evil. With every choice, a character transforms into a reflection of his actions and decisions. Age leaves characters wizened and battle leaves characters scarred in the world of Fable: The Lost Chapters.
With experience comes character advancement and physical change. These changes may take the form of expanding muscles, development of a keen eye or even the buzz of magical energies around fingertips. Villagers and NPCs comment on successes, failures, appearances and behaviors. Their many opinions are expressed through applause, mockery, trepidation, panic and even flirtation. With each good deed or creature slain, the world is changed forever. In Fable: The Lost Chapters, gamers decide: “Who will I be?”
Well, All I can say is: About Bloody Time!
I don't own an X-box, nor will I own one in the near future (I'm a PS2/PC gamer) but I still got to play the console game on my brother's box. I enjoyed it alot, although I thought it was short.
I really can't wait till it comes out on the PC. The PC is capable of greater graphics the X-Box, and I want to see what improvements they did on the game, I also want to see what kind of control scheme they have, cause I found the x-box controls to be cumbersome.
