Fable IV details leaked on Reddit

Game Details:

- First/Third Person
- In depth character creator
- Completely open
- No guns
- Can ignore main quest and never become a hero
- Players can build towns, ties into main quest heavily if you get the bad ending and fail
- Multiplayer
- Unreal Engine

Story Details:

Albion and Aurora are gone. "Lands reduced to fables." The Spire was rebuilt and used by a mad king to wish that an asteroid would strike the planet. He also wished it would happen again in the far future. Eons later and everything is new (medieval themed, new continents) and you have to stop the destruction of the planet again. Theresa and a Heroes Guild are preserved on another planet via a demon door. Time Travel heavily involved in play. Jack of Blades returns.

well Fable was always one of the big draws to the Xbox for me, not sure how I feel about another team making one, guess as long as its a British team theres a chance the tone of humour will be intact at least

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (XGP & Gold combined) is now available. You can convert your current sub to it and get it converted to Ultimate.

The Xbox Game Pass for PC is also working now. If you've got it on Xbox, you've got it on PC as well.

They've also added 20+ new games to XGP, which includes Shenmue 1 & 2, Moonlighter, Guacamelee 2, Steamworld Dig 2 etc.

There are rumours MS have bought another 3 game studios & it will be announced at their E3 conference.

When you sign up for a dollar it will convert your remaining Pass/Gold time to Ultimate.

OK yeah I figured it out.

Best option here is extend XBL as much as you can, then convert it to this new pass for $1. It will convert all your existing Live to the new pass then add +1 month of the new pass on top.

Now I'm on the hunt for cheap XBL Gold.

And if you add Gold or XGP after switching, you get it at a 3:2 ratio, so with a 1 month XBL/GP code you get 20 days of Ultimate.

That's fine, I haven't converted yet. So I need to find some cheap XBLG online somewhere first, then I'll convert over.

I extended my Live by 12 months, then converted it to Ultimate Game Pass. It all runs out in October 2020, so not too bad.
