A high-definition remake of Fable, entitled Fable Anniversary, which will include The Lost Chapters is scheduled for release in February 2014 for the Xbox 360.
Fable is a role-playing video game where players control their character from a third person perspective. The main character, known as the The Hero of Oakvale, can interact with people and objects as well as battle foes. The goal of Fable is to complete missions called quests that advance the game’s plot, but Fable also features optional quests and allows players to pursue actions not directly tied to story completion.
The game takes place in Albion, a patchwork of city-states with lawless stretches of plains and forest between them. Once called the Old Kingdom, the entire land was once led by an ancient royal bloodline, bestowed with the title of Archon. The first Archon’s rule was peaceful and prosperous, but the source of his power was an ancient and powerful sword that gradually began to corrupt him and, eventually, his entire kingdom. By the time the events of the game take place, the world has slowly deteriorated from the days of the Old Kingdom. One of the most prominent institutions of Albion is the Heroes’ Guild. The Guild is a centre of learning and training for Heroes, renowned mercenaries that are active in all parts of Albion. Heroes are hired as thieves, soldiers, guards, rescuers, and protectors; the Guild makes no moral judgement on the actions of its Heroes.
