Today sees the launch of the highly anticipated Fable Heroes, the latest title in the critically acclaimed Fable series launching exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Developed by UK outfit Lionhead Studios, Fable Heroes is the sixth release in the franchise and second to grace the Xbox LIVE Arcade digital distribution service.
Fable Heroes is an action-packed hack-and-slash adventure built for Xbox LIVE Arcade, delivering a fresh spin on Fable with a unique art style and gameplay that brings playful competition to the franchise for the first time. Whether on the couch or using Xbox LIVE, up to four players work together to defeat enemies while also competing with one another to collect gold coins and level-up. Precious gold collected in Fable Heroes can be imported into the forthcoming Kinect title, Fable: The Journey, in a similar fashion to Fable: Pub Games with Fable II and the Windows Phone 7 exclusive, Fable Coin Golf with Fable III, providing players with a valuable head start from day one.
As with Trials Evolution and Bloodforge, Fable Heroes will present the updated rules for Achievements and Gamerscore in Xbox LIVE Arcade titles, now offering four hundred Gamerscore across up to thirty Achievements. Fable Heroes is available to download now, priced at 800 Microsoft Points, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Fable franchise.
