Much like Halo 4, Microsoft and Lionhead Studios have been rather quiet regarding Fable: The Journey since its E3 2011 unveiling. However, today they have released some new screenshots and highlighted some of the Kinect powered game’s features.
Taking place in the familiar world of Albion, Fable: The Journey will see you play as Gabriel from a new first-person perspective. Playing as the aforementioned protagonist, you’ ll come to the aid of the ailing and mysterious Theresa, who thrusts you into an adventure full of dangerous enemies, hair-raising chases and humorous characters. To add to that, you’ll learn to master magic, defend yourself in combat and solve puzzles on your journey to becoming a hero. Don’t worry, you won’t be alone, as you’ll have a trusty horse by your side!
The following are just some Fable: The Journey’s features:
- A captivating narrative – Fable: The Journey immerses you in a role-playing experience like never before with a deep storyline and a slew of compelling characters and creatures. In this action-packed adventure you’ll develop a lasting bond with your horse through an emotion-filled journey that will uncover the mystery behind Theresa, who has appeared in all previous games in the franchise.
- Heart-pounding action – Thanks to the controller-free experience of Kinect, you’ll be able to quickly wield magic in ways you never dreamed possible.
