This is the final nail in the coffin for what's left of Fables good name (after the shamble Fable 3 and Kinect left it in).

Not looking forward to relying on 3 AI characters while offline.

This game looks very promising. I loved the fable series there not the best RPGs but they sure not the worst by a long shot

it looks like it would be awesome to play as the villain on the pc, and the heroes on x1. they should aim at that kind of integration. but fable is all about the story (even more in the last games where gameplay was actually lacking), and if they can't fit story into this setting, I'll probably be skipping it.

From one of the most over rated personalities and studios in the game industry. But here is hoping Legends beats the odds. I don't see how multiplayer focus is going to appeal to the Fable fan base. Core RPG gamers, in general, aren't into action multiplayer. Not interested, pending great post launch reviews.

don't hate on fable. Xbox doesn't have a lot of exclusive franchises like ps3. fable is all they can come up with.

I hate it and I love it. Uhhh I guess its a co-op game where you only can play with people and cant play on your own. If it would come on PC i would try it... I dont feel like buying a console.

WTF Lionhead, why do yo think we'd pay for another spin-off?? Fable didn't even have that big of a fan-base and you've now just obliterated what little you had left

"multiplayer-focused adventure Xbox One game" 

holy crap this is going to be another subscribtion based MMO 

it's not bad enough Micro$hit made a kinect fable so now this??!

Disappointing...as cruddy as Fable III was, I was hoping for a sequel where they redeemed themselves.  I'm not overly interested in games just based in the Fable world.

I'll play this game a villian from my tablet. So i do have to buy game first and get Xbox One to work it out ? Please find some info about this. Same goes for The Division and all the SmartGlass featured games.

Probably because Fable III was crap. Legends will turn out rubbish as well.

@Revl8n Except that Peter Molyneux left Lion Head Studios so he actually has nothing to do with this game.  So we'll get to see what the developers are able to do without the "over rated" personality attached to them.

It's not a subscription based MMO. Check IGNs coverage.

@Zetsuie Yeah this is shocking because Fable 3 was really good.*Cough* *cough*.

@Random_Matt Right? Because when one company makes more than one game, every game that it creates is of the same quality and would get exactly the same score on any rating system.

Oh, wait...
