Lionhead teasing remake of original Fable *update* Fable Anniversary announced.


Update: Lionhead has now announced Fable Anniversary for release later this year on Xbox 360.

Check out the new screens and press release:

Nearly a decade ago, Microsoft and Lionhead Studios took the gaming world by storm with Fable, a unique, fantasy role-playing game that gave players unprecedented freedom to make meaningful choices with permanent consequences.

Now, Lionhead Studios invites you to relive the magic with Fable Anniversary for Xbox 360, a modern remastering of the best-selling Xbox classic featuring stunning graphics, almost instant loading times, an all-new interface, Achievements, Xbox SmartGlass support and more.

“We’re really excited to bring Fable to Xbox 360,” said Ted Timmins, Lead Designer on Fable Anniversary. “It’s the game that the Fable community has been asking for, so we wanted to make sure Fable Anniversary delivered the definitive Fable experience for both long-time fans and newcomers to the franchise.”

In Fable Anniversary, you play as The Hero, an orphan whose destiny you shape through in-game decisions that influence not only his development as a hero, but the fate of the entire realm. In addition to Fable’s original storyline, Fable: Anniversary includes the expansion pack, Fable: The Lost Chapters.

Fable Anniversary uses the power Xbox 360 to bring Fable to life like never before. The graphics are substantially updated with new lighting, textures, models, facial and cut scene animations, and more, all in 1080p HD resolution. In addition, Fable Anniversary includes a new interface, save system and nearly non-existent loading times, making the immersive journey through the dangerous and mysterious world of Albion even more seamless.

Fable Anniversary also brings Achievements to Fable for the first time. “We’re doing something that’s not been done before,” said Timmins. “Fable has always been about choices and consequences, so we’re trying to put that into our Achievements.”

While Fable Anniversary introduces modern improvements, Timmins emphasized each one was designed to enhance a gameplay experience that remains true to its roots.

“It’s probably the hardest part of the job. We needed to keep Fable the same, but also make it different,” said Timmins. “It was a case of playing through the game over and over and writing down a list of the things we wanted to address in order to bring Fable to a 360 quality level that people expect.”

And of course you can still punt chickens. “There’s now a leaderboard for this,” explained Timmins. “So you can actually find out who the best chicken kicker in Albion is.”

Fable Anniversary launches only on Xbox 360 this holiday season. 

Original: Lionhead is teasing a remake of the original Fable. The game originally appeared on Xbox, although never made the jump to Xbox 360.

In the clip below we see Fable villain Jack of Blades, while also getting more than a few looks at all of the requests for a remake.

Why would we get this video without a remake? It's happening and by the looks of things on Xbox 360.

Here's the video.

For all you know all the people that have Pre-ordered it could cancel the Pre-orders around E3 (Unlikely since some Fanboys will get it no matter what)

When facepalm just not enough. "Jak & Daxter" or "Ratchet and Clank" re-release in "HD" for PS3 makes perfect sense since they where only on PS2, but this old-ass-shit is on Steam with Lost Chapters for like £4 - what's the point?

You can get the Jak games, Ratchet game and the Sly games on Ebay for a few quid each. The point is like you said this is "old-ass-shit" and people what this game Remade with the cut content

But it won't be better than it is already on Steam. Few oldfags will buy it and that's it. No sales, no profit, no reason. So, what's the point again?

People who don't have steam like me would buy a hd upgraded game.

Also, people don't like to play their games on the PC when they have a £100+ console sitting there begging for attention.

How are these > another? They're all pointless and do nothing save for bragging rights.

@Hymeleon Yes I prefer Sony console also, but Fable ain't out on Sony. For those asking: Why 360 and not Xbox One. Because Microsoft need to prove to 360 gamers, that they won't be forgotten after Xbox one

When the "One" comes out, the price of making a game for the 360 will go down so i'm sure we will see some new IP's on the 360 and some exclusive games

Let's hope so, barring a miracle happening I won't be getting any new consoles for at least a year.

Hope so. I'd like to pick up a 360 dirt cheap at some point and get a few games I've missed played!
