Today during Microsoft's Gamescom briefing in Cologne, Germany, the company announced that the multiplayer beta for upcoming Xbox One role-playing game Fable Legends will begin on October 16. You can sign up for the beta today at the game's website.

Unfortunately, neither Microsoft nor developer Lionhead Studios have announced what the Fable Legends beta will entail. Lionhead did say, however, that it plans to grow the beta over time.

Fable Legends was originally announced a year ago this month, during last year's Gamescom. It is powered by Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4, and lets up to four players journey through the fictional world of Albion together. Players can also choose to become the villain, and are able to issue commands to nefarious creatures about which player to attack and which abilities to use to thwart their advances.

Though the beta for Fable Legends begins this year, the full game's release date has not been announced. When it is finally released, Microsoft expects the game to enjoy a long life of 5-10 years. For more on Fable Legends, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
