Gamescom's first new game comes in the form of Fable Legends, exclusive to the Xbox One.

Fable franchise is one of Microsoft's famed properties and this new game, developed by Lionhead Studios, will be an always-online game...

This newest entrant in Microsoft's fantasy franchise was revealed in a pre-event showcase via a CGI trailer by Microsoft execs Phil Harrison and Phil Spencer.

Here's the trailer:

From the Fables Legends trailer, we get the idea that the game will offer the player either the role of a 'hero' or 'villain'. A perfect setup for an online game, where the 'good vs evil' play always scores.

Nothing more is known but rest assured, Microsoft will pull back the curtains very soon. Stay tuned for more!

So Xbox players, does the action role-playing series still excite you? What are your thoughts on Fable Legend's it multiplayer-focused gameplay? Let us know in the comments below!

Excited for Fable Legends fellas?

The only reason people are saying they're not excited is because it's coming out for Xbox One only (I voted not really for that reason). If it was also being released for PC then people would be excited :(

Fable has to be on level with Elder Scrolls and Knight of the Old Republic for me.

It didn't have many choices and they didn't impact the game as much as they should. The weapon system was just f**ked up. The rest was OK... In MY opinion!

I enjoyed Fable 2 and 3 but have never played the first one. Fable 2 is better than fable 3 though.

Fable 2 was alright though.

What would you suggest they do? I'm pretty sure if they had gone for a new IP, people would've reacted the same way... :)
Resorting to your most successful franchise is a good way to get your confidence back, but yes, they'l have to be extra careful.

I only suggest that because, the quality of their most sucessful series has gone down in overall quality with each installment, this will either make it or break it for the series in my perspective.

Very true that, Markus. But going for a new IP wouldn't be as good a choice overall in my view.
Looks like only the game will tell us ;D

Fable 1: Was one of the best games out there.
Fable 2: Wasnt as good, took out some systems that were good like armor and you couldnt use a bow. Still very enjoyable though. (also wasnt on PC)
Fable 3: Oh please dear god no

after fable 3 I went back and played fable 2, and the combat on fable 2 is awful in comparison. I guess that it's just something you don't really notice I guess?

You mean TLC? Holy s***, that was the game that got me addicted to RPGs! It was freaking awesome, I hope they add extra 2 hours for the story like they did when they remade original Fable into TLC :3 Feels like my PC life just got a meaning (For the last month I was running around YouTue just being an ass)
