Peter Molyneux, who led development on the original Fable and its two sequels, has played the upcoming high-definition Fable Anniversary overhaul and has given it a "thumbs up."
Lionhead Studios lead designer Ted Timmins told GameSpot that Molyneux, following his departure from the studio and Microsoft altogether, remains a friend of the company.
"He popped over, had a play, gave a thumbs up, and then went back on his way," Timmins said.
The game will have an entirely new lighting system, powered by the Unreal engine, as well as all-new character models, textures, materials, and new facial and cutscene animations. It will also feature widescreen support and remastered audio for surround sound setups.
All content found in Fable and its Lost Chapters expansion will be included in Fable Anniversary, though Lionhead said no additional quests or content will be added to the new version.
