According to the description on the Fable trailer, the new game will be on Game Pass when it launches, which means that Xbox Series X owners who also subscribe to the service will be able to play the new Fable for free.
After Fable 3 was released in 2010, the franchise has been treated to nearly a half-dozen trite spin-offs like Fable: The Journey, Fable Coin Golf, and quite a few more. After months of speculation and leaks, Microsoft debuted a cinematic teaser during the July 23 Games Showcase that confirmed a new Fable game was in development for Xbox Series X — and we might as well call it Fable 4 until an actual title is confirmed.
Here’s everything we know about the game billed as “a new beginning for the legendary franchise.”
When is the Fable 4 release date?
There currently isn’t a release date or window for the newest Fable. The minute-long reveal teaser doesn’t offer much in the way of concrete information, but it would be safe to assume the latest Fable game is in early development.
We do know that this new Fable will be available exclusively on Xbox Series X and Windows 10. Most Xbox games in the near future are being released cross-gen for both Xbox One and for Xbox Series X, so that means Fable probably won’t be released for quite some time. At this point, a late 2021 release date seems wildly optimistic but perhaps possible.
Is there a trailer for Fable 4?
Yes! An “official announce trailer” debuted when Fable 4 was announced during the Xbox Games showcase on July 23. You can watch it below.
In the trailer, a fairy flies through Fable’s verdant forests, showcasing the brilliantly detailed graphics. The fairy is eaten by a frog, which is a great example of Fable’s classic cheeky humor. Afterward, we’re shown an unnamed kingdom. The central building looks somewhat similar to Fable 2’s , but it isn’t said where this kingdom is located or if we’re even in Albion.
British actor provided the narrator’s voice in the trailer. Fry previously played the pirate in Fable 2 and 3. The trailer doesn’t make it clear if Reaver himself is the narrator or if they’re just voiced by the same actor. Fry could be portraying a new character altogether. “Not all stories have happy endings,” he says.
Will Fable 4 be on Xbox Game Pass?
Yes! According to the description on the Fable trailer, the new game will be on Game Pass when it launches, which means that Xbox Series X owners who also subscribe to the service will be able to play the new Fable for free.
How does Fable 4 connect to the previous games?
We’re not sure how it connects yet. The Fable announcement trailer didn’t place a number after the Fable name. This could be a reboot or a continuation of previous games, but context clues hint at the former.
