Fable Heroes brings a new level of cuteness to the franchise
Earlier today Microsoft and Lionhead Studios released Fable Heroes, a fresh and unique spin on the world of Albion that Fable fans have come to know and love.
In the game you control one of four puppet warriors as they hack and slash through a half-dozen levels of a shrunken Albion. You start the game with four basic characters—two for melee and two for ranged attacks—and can unlock more skins with gold coins that they earn by smashing barrels and enemies.
Fable Heroes includes some nice bits, such as;
- Heroic Challenges: You and four of your mates can team-up or go head-to-head to defeat monsters to collect gold coins.
- Albion with a Fun Twist: Fable Heroes emerged from the imaginations of several Lionhead employees and fans of the franchise will recognise regions, enemies and cheeky characters from the “Fable” series.
- Skilled Progression: Players can battle to become an unstoppable force in Albion by crushing friends and foes to level-up. As heroes advance, game features will unlock, such as finishing moves, flourishes and power ups.
- Ever Changing Gameplay: The game is host to numerous mini-games, which unlock new powers and allows you to climb the Xbox LIVE leaderboards while sticking it to you friends.
Oh and one nice touch is that all the coin collected in Fable Heroes can be imported into the forthcoming Kinect title, Fable: The Journey, providing players with a serious head start from launch.
The launch trailer that was also released today, is full to the brim with hack-and-slash fun, in addition to previewing some the different finishing moves, flourishes and power ups you can earn. Check it out below.
Fable Heroes is available now on the Xbox LIVE Arcade for just 800 Microsoft points.
