    Happy they announced this and hopefully it will be out before 2015.

    I really like Fable 2 and Fable 3 was OK (felt a little too streamlined and the end sort of snuck up on me).

    Sounds like it might be an MMO style game. I hope they don't go all out MMO and make it like World of Warcraft or something (i.e. just endless quests of go fetch 10 of these) and they focus on story in missions and have an overall campaign/quest line.

    Also if they keep the charm and humour of the Fable series and don't make it like Fable: The Journey I'll be interested.

    I'll be keeping a close eye on this one. Cant wait for Fable Ann on the 360 later this year though.

    Fable: Legends is “big and ambitious,” with a 5-10 year lifespan planned | VG247

    Nobody knows but I'd hazard a guess that there will be. I imagine that it'll be like swtor so you can solo it if you want but the bigger missions will need coop.

    The trailer above is very nice, but is there any actual gameplay videos or screenshots? wondering how close or far the graphics are to the announcement trailer above.

    Yep. I've signed up. Many a false dawn with what the fables promised and what they delivered. They were all very good, just not what they seemingly promised. I will gladly try it out if selected. I hope it's great.

    My other half is never interested in any of my games apart from Fable

    But this was back in the day when Fable II was released...now though

    She has absolutely no interest in the past 2 releases and it's a shame because I'd love my other half to be more interested in gaming. I too think the makers have gone completely down the wrong path and should have continued what was in the first and second and grasped the essence and evolved the gameplay.

    They've lost one buyer, I wonder how many more this company have lost with their change of direction

    I'm hearing that this is gonna be free to play. Which is good because at least I'll give it a go, from what we've seen of it so far, the 4 v 1 and what not I'm not really interested.

    I only really played fable 2, and really liked it, so would appreciate an evolution of that. This sends to be nothing like that.

    I think being Free to Play like they did with Killer Instinct might be the best for it however this doesn't seem like the Fable game I would have wanted. I would have preferred a deep RPG with lots of story and the humour of the early Fable games.

    What does slightly worry me is that as it's Free to Play people will download it for free and MS might see this as a success (large number of downloads) and go more into this route of games and less into getting their first party studios to do story driven narrative games. Hope that's not the case though.

    A Eurogamer video about it being free to play. They seem to have more information on how it works. With 4 characters being free to use, and being swapped out every couple of weeks for a new 4 characters. Characters can then be purchased with cash money or in game currency which is earned through normal gameplay.

    Fable Legends will be Free-To-Play (and a bit of new PC Gameplay):

    Sounds to me like they are making all the right decisions around how the free to play system works.

    Indeed this idea is looking very interesting. If done right it will be excellent. Big risk for them as yes it will get loads of players (like me who wouldn't of bought it) . Their online world will be full and they must be confident with this. I don't mind paying for extras if the games free and I'm enjoying it. This is very interesting

    Very different, in my opinion its Fable only in name. From what I have played it's quite entertaining, I'm not sure about the longevity though.
