Fable Legends is a 5 player asymmetric multiplayer game coming to Xbox One, similar to Evolve, where 4 players work together to defeat one all powerful villain.
Based on the Fable series, and in production by Lionhead Studios, you’ll return once again to the land of Albion. You can play the whole game in single player if you wish, with three computer controlled allies, or co-operatively with 3 friends, with the ability to switch easily between single player and multiplayer whenever you decide. During a quest, you can elect to battle a human villain or an AI villain.
Fable has always presented opportunities for mischief and villainy, and in Fable Legends you’re able to play the bad guy as never before. The Villain player takes control of the many creatures, minions, traps, and environmental hazards that Heroes must overcome. When those Heroes enter an area, you’ll choose which minions are sent into battle and where to place these creatures to maximize their effectiveness. Once the fight begins, you issue the orders for your creatures to execute: telling them where to go, which Hero to attack, and what abilities to use to ensure your evil plans come to fruition.
If the trailer is anything to go by it’s going to be a very good looking game, with fun combat and a nice selection of creatures to beat up/command. The 5 player multiplayer is particularly exciting, playing the hero looks like fun, but playing as a villainous dungeon master sounds wicked.
