Fable 4 is the next mainline entry in the fantasy RPG series. The thing is, it’s just called Fable for now, but that could change as we get closer to the final launch window, and Microsoft hasn’t released all that much information about his Fable 4 right now. Hmm. After a brief announcement trailer, things seemed to quiet down while the game was in development.
What we do know about Fable 4 is that it’s being handled by the great folks at Playground Games. This is the team behind the Forza Horizon series, which may seem strange at first. The team excels at creating detailed environments with realistic weather effects. This could really help give his new Fable game a unique visual style. Anyway, it seems to be in safe hands.
Everything we know about Fable 4 so far is here, including platforms, trailers, and the latest news and rumors. For now, check out the first reveal trailer below, along with some possible teases of what the fight might look like.

Fable 4 release date and platforms
No release date or release period has been set for Fable 4 yet. The earliest he could be is late 2023, but more likely 2024.

This was corroborated by the June 2022 Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, which focused on games coming out “within the next 12 months,” and was not attended by Fable.

It’s unclear if it will arrive on the Xbox One console, but Microsoft hasn’t confirmed anything, so that doesn’t mean we’re holding back hope.
Fable 4 Trailer
world premiere trailer
Currently, only one trailer for Fable has been released.
The trailer doesn’t reveal much, but it doesn’t quite get the Victorian-style Industrial Revolution feel it did with Fable, so it’s possible the game is set well before the later entries in the series. It suggests 3 settings. Instead, Fable 4 will likely have a medieval fantasy setting similar to the original game, with the trailer apparently showing swords, fairies, overgrown mushrooms, and ravenous toads.

Fable 4 News and Rumors
Xbox Boss Explains Lack Of News
Fable 4 is still in development, but with the game not showing up during the Xbox showcase at both Summer Game Fest and Gamescom 2022, fans have been wondering when they’ll be able to hear more.
Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty acknowledged the lack of news during the event. Interview at PAX West 2022 (opens in new tab) However, he explained that the game will only appear when developer Playground Games is ready to show it.
“Every time I see something, I say, ‘I should show you this,’ because there’s so much cool stuff,” said Booty. “The team made it very clear that we can’t show you anything until it’s ready.”
Booty went on to voice his support for Playground Games, saying that choosing a studio primarily known for Forza Horizon to produce Fable 4 might seem “a bit of a headache.” But they said they “understand” and “the time will come when we can show more”.
In development for at least 4 years
Fable 4 has been in development longer than expected. In a November 2021 tweet, the Playground Games developer working on the game celebrated “his four years working on Fable.”
That means the game has been in development for at least four years, and its development likely began just a year after series creator Lionhead Studios closed down. I’m not sure, but the idea that Fable has been in development for years gives me hope that I’ll learn more in the near future.

Combat in Fable 4 might feel like a witcher
The developers of CD Projekt RED (The Witcher series, Cyberpunk 2077) are working on the game’s combat system.As reported by PC Games N (opens in new tab)gameplay designer Paweł Kapała, directs combat at Fable developer Playground Games, and his LinkedIn page confirms that the role entails “designing and implementing combat in Fable.”
In our opinion, sword-and-spell combat like The Witcher 3, one of the best-selling video games of all time, is the best of Fable games, especially given how similar some of the spells in the game are. It would be a perfect template. .
Be Confident in Your Playground Games, Says Phil Spencer
Fable 4 is being made by Playground Games, the studio perhaps best known for its work on the Forza Horizon series, but Phil Spencer wants fans to have confidence in the studio.2021 Speaking on the Dropped Frames Podcast, June (via) VGC (opens in new tab)), Spencer said:
“All I can really say about Fable is confirming the team and Playground’s pedigree and where they set their bar in building the game. Forza Horizon 5 Previews , I think it showed what they had.People should have confidence in that [studio director] Gavin [Raeburn] The team there has the same level of focus on doing something great with an IP that we know is very important to many Xbox fans, so we can’t wait to show you more. But the team is just great. ”
Forza Horizon 5’s weather system portends Fable 4
Considering Forza Horizon 5 has the most dynamic and impressive weather system in the series, and developer Playground Games is also working on Fable 4, here’s how this tech translates into open-world Albion. By implementing these dynamic weather systems into the new Fable, Playground Games will bring the new Fable to what previous developer Lionhead and many other RPG developers have ever been able to do. We believe we have the opportunity to give you a unique stamp that you never had before. The idea of Albion, where each region has its own seasonal weather, is exciting. It can reflect the passage of time more effectively and truly enhance the immersion and uniqueness of each part of the game’s map.
it may be years away
As far as we know, Fable 4 is still in early development and it may be a while before we get a chance to play it. actual, VGC off the record podcast (opens in new tab) In April 2021, industry reporter and head of GamesIndustry.biz Chris Dring said the (at the time) release of the game could be years away, along with other Xbox exclusives announced. said.
Based on conversations with Xbox Game Studios employees, Dring said: Likewise, there could be new Xboxes (mid-tier upgrades) by the time these games are released.
They’re so far apart, and with Xbox not having a large line-up of exclusives at all, it’s no wonder they’re looking to invest in and sign certain products soon. “
Fable is set to use the ForzaTech engine
According to past job postings (opens in new tab)was for software engineers at Turn10 Studios, Fable will be built using the ForzaTech engine that powers the Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon games. The list is looking for candidates who can help the team enrich their “Open World Action RPG – Toolset to support Fable” and add new features such as “Ray Tracing to support the next generation of consoles”. It is stated that
Confirmation of lead writer
Anna Megill, who was senior writer and narrative lead at Remedy Entertainment during the development of Control, will join Playground Games as lead writer on Fable.

the team behind the game
Shortly after Fable itself was published, we got an insight into the impressive team working on the game. VGC (opens in new tab)It turns out that a number of veteran game designers are working on a Fable reboot, including the lead quest designer for the Borderlands series, level designers for GTA V and GTA Online, and many of the writers who worked on Batman: Arkham. Knight.
There have been rumors that Fable will be an MMO, but the experience of those working on the project certainly suggests it take a more open-world RPG approach, perhaps with an online multiplayer component. we can’t say For real Stay tuned until Playground Games and Microsoft reveal official details.
That wild pre-announcement rumor
Before Fable 4 was announced to the world, there was a 2019 video leak that claimed to give insight into the game’s setting and story. There’s a Reddit thread left containing it, and some of the details sound pretty wild.
While that sounds pretty plausible, it does create an opportunity to reset the setting of the Fable series, return the series to its medieval fantasy roots, and use some very different elements to make the series feel fresh. Make it easy. The game’s reveal trailer, though brief, didn’t give us any obvious sense that the new game was ahead of Fable 3’s industrial revolution setting over time.
Of course, this is a leak from an unverified source, so I guess we’ll take it with a pinch of salt until Playground Games or Microsoft start revealing solid details about Fable 4. You can read the full leak.

Fable 4 is likely an open world game
Eurogamer, January 2018 Said An all-new high-budget Fable game was in the works, according to sources close to the project. Now we know it’s true.
The news comes less than two years after Lionhead Studios closed. The report correctly states that Playground Games, best known for their work on the Forza Horizon series, will be the series’ new developer.
Eurogamer sources say a team of over 200 people are working on Fable from the team’s new office at Leamington Spa, but development was still in its very early stages.
What kind of Fable is Playground working on? Well, reports say the game will be an open world action RPG with a focus on characters and story. It certainly matches everything we’ve seen in the reveal trailer, with the final shot showing a large world that seems ripe for exploration.
It also makes sense that Playground would bring Forza Horizon’s open world expertise to a game like this. Either way, we can’t wait to see what it comes up with.
