Game Rant Writes "The Fable reboot is presumably coming along in development now, and the game may benefit from giving the player starting classes to choose from."

Fable has always been an RPG-lite game designed mainly for kids or the "Xbox crowd" who generally have no clue about RPGs so mechanics such as farting has been more important than levelling up, classes, or narrative.

The developers also have had an abysmal recent record. I have no faith that these guys can make anything that isn't full of bugs

Didn't know crude humor and sex scenes were aimed towards. You never played it clearly lol wow.

DOMination-630d ago

Oh my mistake. Didn't realise that sex scenes = RPG.

But as you mentioned it, please link me to one of these sex scenes you mention. Afterall, I've never played it and you're a franchise expert so finding this should be quite easy for you.

Lightning77630d ago


It blacks it out but it's a sex scene. It's all over YT.

As a gamer who primarily plays games on PC, I think I've heard this about all console RPGs. RPG elitism is a little silly, not every game needs to be a proper pen and paper adaption.

I prefer classes along with a classless option. Tho from what I remember from Fable 2 you were pretty much good at everything and there wasn't much need to tie yourself to one type of play style.

HyperMoused629d ago

I enjoy class systems much more than just do whatever you want, only problem is late game stuff, its good when you are a class and it stays that way, not just get so powerful in the mid to end game that you are everything now.

So many great games shown but for me Perfect Dark took the cake.

Jingsing34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

Looked dated to be honest, simple cpu character pathing mixed with gameplay and graphics resembling a 360 game. It is clearly an indie effort. Perfect Dark Zero was a better attempt despite not having the best controls.

Lightning7734d ago

Quick look at your comment history it's pretty obvious on your little crusade so why would anyone take your comments seriously?

GaboonViper33d ago

LOL i think you're talking about Concord.

Perfect Woke Starring John Dark for Xbox 360

Lightning7734d ago

Perfect Dark trailer looked better than I thought. People are down on Dragon Age or has a mixed response but I have to see gameplay im still hyped for it. People want the big titles. I know AAA guys are closing down studios and doing massive lay offs but ppl need to get excited for PS5 and Series X and still need a reason to buy these consoles. The small AA stuff that Geoff showed off was fine, It's not a reason to pickup consoles, hell even turn on your console for some.

Ranting. Anyway Avowed I'm definitely looking forward to also.


Fable Confirmed for 2025, But is it a Reboot, or Prequel?

Fable got a whole new trailer at the recent Xbox Games Showcase. It was breathtaking and left so much to interpret for fans new and old.

I expect it to be released by 2026

Sonic188186d ago (Edited 86d ago )

I expect it to release by the time the next Xbox releases. Can that be 2026? Sure

DOMination-86d ago

You could say the same for any number of games that were stupidly announced during pre-production. Elder Scrolls 6 & Perfect Dark are current examples, Blade is another recent one and in the past Mass Effect Andromeda and Cyberpunk 2077 come to mind.

I don't think this game is in any trouble. For a start, Playground Games are one of the few under MS Studios that actually have a track record of delivering on time and with quality. We got a trailer last year and I'd fully expect there to be something more substantial at the next showcase in the summer.

No dramas here - just another victim of Microsoft's incompetence. They simply had to announce several games way too early because they had nothing else to talk about.

Michiel198985d ago

how are they a victim when they are clearly being given enough time? They haven't set any release date, haven't had to show any trailers, how is that being a victim? You even say yourself that you think it's not in trouble.

MrBaskerville85d ago (Edited 85d ago )

TESVI was mostly announced to stop people from asking. Like how they gave us a roadmap of first Starfield, then TES then Fallout. So people keep asking whether they'll do another one or not.

But Fable and Perfect Dark was defineately too early.

RNTody86d ago

The same thing that happens to any project when you announce it far too early. Perfect Dark, Fable, The Elder Scrolls 6, Star Wars KOTOR Remake...you actually have to, I don't know, make the game?

I'm fairly confident this game will see the light of day, as Playground have released 5 Forza games of quality and on schedule. Think it was just revealed too early.

Charlieboy33385d ago

The only issue I see is that, as you mentioned, they have only done Forza games. An RPG is completely different requiring completely different facets.

Whole new different open world....not just tracks. Character designs and animations, dialogue, combat systems, quest systems, equipment and inventory managment....the list is very long and none of it falls under their previous experience.

Even with assistance from other studios I believe they are still far off from delivering a complete version of this game.
