Lionhead Teases ‘Fable: The Lost Chapters’ HD Remake, ‘Fable 4’

Fable Jack of Blades Teaser

Fans of the Fable video game series have been expecting a new game for a while now. The games have been progressively becoming less and less loved over the years, capped off by the latest entry, Fable: The Journey, a motion-controlled Kinect title that failed pretty spectacularly. But credit is due to fans of the series, who, for the most part, have remained excited about future games despite the growing list of negatives associated with the franchise, holding on to that hope that the next game could be the game to restore the franchise to its original glory.

This tiny sliver of hope grew a bit when Lionhead Studios head Peter Molyneaux—who became infamous for spitting out exciting used car salesman statements about a game that ultimately failed to deliver—departed the company for a new venture. Now Lionhead is teasing fans with a video that appears to announce either an HD re-release of the classic original Fable (including The Lost Chapters, it’s assumed) and/or Fable IV, or perhaps a remake of the original. Check out the video below and share your thoughts!

Peter Molyneaux Leaves Lionhead Studios For New Venture; What’s It Mean For ‘Fable 4’?

Fable III

Almost anyone who follows video games will know the name Peter Molyneaux. The British video game designer and programmer founded Lionhead Studios, the creator of the massive Fable franchise, and he developed quite the reputation for over-exalting upcoming games and promising the moon and the stars even when the final product didn’t end up meeting expectations.

Whether the man just wanted to do or say whatever it took to sell a game or if he simply had a childlike passion that led to his exaggerations is not clear, but you can’t deny that when he talked about his games, he made you as excited as he seemed to be about them.

But for better or worse, Molyneaux has decided to move on to new things, announcing his departure from the Microsoft-owned Lionhead for a new company called 22 Cans.

E3 2011: ‘Fable 4’ Looks To Bring Kinect To The Next Level; See Trailer & Gameplay Demo Now!

Fable has turned into an interesting franchise for Peter Molyneaux and his Lionhead Studios. Each game has come with unbelievable promises, and each—while still enjoyable for many players in terms of basic entertainment—has failed to live up to a lot of the overall hype.

That’s not stopping Molyneaux from continuing to try and reach beyond the stars for the next installment in the Fable franchise, however, with the not-so-surprising announcement of a Fable 4, more officially titled Fable: The Journey. The new game takes a major turn from its predecessors, and it’s this move that will see it gaining (and perhaps losing) many fans.

Be sure to continue reading to learn much more and to see not only the first cinematic trailer for Fable: The Journey, but to see a gameplay demo as well, so you can decide whether you’re in, out, or undecided.

E3 2010: ‘Fable 3’ Demo Shows Off Gameplay

We’ve seen a few different trailers for Fable 3, but we haven’t seen too much gameplay footage, until now. Straight from E3 comes a 6-minute look at the demo that all the insiders got to play. One of the developers actually walks us through many of the new features of the next game in the successful franchise.

One of the new features is a new way to equip your items, instead of the menu of old, you see it all in a 3D environment. In the demo this looked visually pleasing, but cumbersome. The touch feature, where you can touch those in the environments is also featured. Another new piece is how spells are done. You now wear gauntlets on your hand for spells. Put a different spell on each hand and the spells are combined.

In Fable your actions always changed your appearance. Now in the game your actions also change the appearance of your weaponry. Enough about it from me, though, take a look below and let us know what you think in the comments. Will you be picking this game up when it comes out on October 26th?

E3 2010: Lionhead Delivers Brand New ‘Fable 3’ Gameplay Trailer

Coming out of E3 this year is a new trailer for the highly anticipated Fable 3.

Watch it below.

At the end Fable 2, you become the kind Albion, the nation in the game. At the beginning of Fable 3, your old character is dead and you play as one of your sons. It is an interesting way to tie the two games together, if it is a little confusing.

There are two sons of your former character: one continues on to rule ruthlessly; the other, the one you play, is left to be homeless. Strange that one prince would get it all, while the other gets nothing. Hopefully this will be explained. What is a former prince left with nothing to do, but revolt against his brother to gain power, which is exactly what you do in the game.

Fable III

The work on Fable III is already well under-way, and with promises of a Holiday season 2010 release date, the folks at Lionhead Studios have a lot on their plate these days. None-the-less, things seem to be going well, and after some big announcements made recently, the studio has released a new video diary to warm up your excitement levels for the third adventure.

Lionhead top dog Peter Molyneaux recently spoke at the X10 convention, and arrived with promises of the announcements of major changes to the Fable franchise that would likely leave many angered. As it turns out, all of the big changes actually sound pretty exciting, and, depending on how well the concepts translate to gameplay, they could make for a very cool, very unique Fable III experience.

Among the many changes being reported out of the convention, it looks as if Lionhead is ready to take our hand (literally) and guide us away from the games that we’re familiar with today, including Fable II. For example: there will be no more health bars or orbs of experience or any of that. Everything will depend solely on who you are and what you do with your Fable III life.

Good Choices Or Bad Choices: ‘Fable 3’ To Use Project Natal, Charge For Items?

Fable III

In an announcement that comes as no surprise at all, Lionhead Studios Creative Director Peter Molyneaux confirmed that Fable III will be compatible with the Microsoft motion sensor technology currently known only as Project Natal. It has been rumored that Natal will be ready to go some time in 2010, but it’s doubtful that this third chapter in the beloved Fable franchise will require the sure-to-be-pricey addition to your Xbox 360 system.

No details were included as to how the system would apply if you play Fable III using it, but it could be really good and it could be really bad. When Natal was shown off at this year’s past E3 Expo (Click to read about E3 & watch the Project Natal demos), the demonstrations blew minds (for the most part), with Lionhead and Molyneaux’s introduction of the boy Milo as the real jaw-dropping moment. Natal was also promoted as the future of gaming, where people will be able to play all of their games with no controllers at all, using only their body and movement. In these two things is where we find the possible pros and cons.
