As showcased during the Xbox Games Showcase of 2024, the brand-new Fable game will be released in 2025. While the exact launch date is yet to be specified, players were treated to several minutes of in-game footage. This was also the first time this title received any gameplay footage of the sort, which was quite the treat to witness.

Fans got to see bits of gameplay, which put the protagonist's powers, abilities, and combat skills on display. The developers also showed levitating enemies and ways to immobilize them.

The trailer showcased the game world, depicting bits of lore complete with the usual humor associated with the series, as well. The usual fantasy setting is still returning, though.

The game is set to release for the PC and Xbox Series X/S in 2025. It is also available via Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service, day one. As expected, this first-party Xbox game does not possess a PlayStation 5 port for now.

Playground Games’ Fable is an upcoming action-adventure, open-world RPG. The game has been in development since 2017, and has been subject to multiple delays. This new entry in the series features a very different artstyle when compared to prior entries in the franchise - focusing on realism over an animated, cartoony visual makeup. The game otherwise seems to be remarkably similar though, bringing in the charm of the previous games.
