E3: Fable 2 massive combat and death movie

Peter Molyneux shows the lot in this exclusive movie.

Two especial points of interest emerged: first up is Fable's combat system, which uses just a single button (the blue X) for hand-to-hand combat (with magic and ranged weapons on the red and green). What's interesting though is how it's moved on since the original Fable, so that although you can play it as a simple button masher, more advanced players will be able to use a combo of rhythmic taps to pull off much more sophisticated melee moves or 'hold' to block and charge up power moves. Check out the movie for the full details.

Superb find. I was really excited when I heard about Fable 2's new death/punishment system but though they wont show it for public for some time. Can't wait.

Fable 2 will definately introduce new and unique gameplay mechanics. I think innovative gameplay is good thing even if it ends up as unpopular or frustrating because it means that developers are trying to expand gameplay to new levels. I'm not saying to continue with the gameplay if it's terrible, I'm saying it's good that developers and companies are exploring new and innovative ways to play.

Over the past few years, I've been assembling a story and some gameplay concepts into a coherent idea. In the process, I've also introduced a new perception of what "death" is in this game. I haven't seen it anywhere else yet but Fable 2 is somewhere close to it.

I thought Fable was a great game.

Hopefully this one will be developed up to the high standards they were shooting for in the first one.
