Fable Jack of Blades Teaser

Fans of the Fable video game series have been expecting a new game for a while now. The games have been progressively becoming less and less loved over the years, capped off by the latest entry, Fable: The Journey, a motion-controlled Kinect title that failed pretty spectacularly. But credit is due to fans of the series, who, for the most part, have remained excited about future games despite the growing list of negatives associated with the franchise, holding on to that hope that the next game could be the game to restore the franchise to its original glory.

This tiny sliver of hope grew a bit when Lionhead Studios head Peter Molyneaux—who became infamous for spitting out exciting used car salesman statements about a game that ultimately failed to deliver—departed the company for a new venture. Now Lionhead is teasing fans with a video that appears to announce either an HD re-release of the classic original Fable (including The Lost Chapters, it’s assumed) and/or Fable IV, or perhaps a remake of the original. Check out the video below and share your thoughts!

As you can see, the teaser touches on the swarms of tweets they’ve received from fans about re-releasing in HD or remaking the original Fable, and then showing the villain from the original game, none other than Jack of Blades.

Jack says he’s back, but does that mean the original is simply being re-released in HD, fully remade, or that Jack could be returning for Fable IV? These are the questions!

Personally, the best case scenario would be an HD re-release of the original game with The Lost Chapters (which is the only way to play that game), and then the announcement of Fable IV, with or without Jack of Blades so long as it’s made a lot closer to the way the original was.

What do you think is on the horizon for Fable?

  1. Yes, yes, YES!!! I don’t care if it’s Xbox 1 exclusive, I’ll buy the system for that fucking game!

  2. I 100% agree with the this article, HD Remake and then announce the 4th game to be like the original and TLC. Please god give us our Fable games back that we loved so much. Fable, and Fable TLC.

  3. Yes! Give me more fable in its original form!

    Comment by Kai Anders Askedal — June 23, 2013 @ 3:34 am

  4. Did you all notice the dialogue was the same as used in the arena[by him] in Fable: The Lost Chapters?

  5. Closer to the way the origional was? That’s insane. Fable 3 was better than Fable 2, Fable 2 was better than Fable. Each game grew and forced the gamer to make tougher decisions than the previous game and rewarded those decisions even more than the last. Fable uses a consequence format and has increased the player’s involvement in that world over and over with the third installment letting the player be King. Wanted to go back to the original format is like wishing you were still in school when you’re in the real world and wishing you were in grade school when you’re in secondary. If you don’t want a challgenge, pop in Fable and beat it (presumably for the first time), otherwise, stop letting publishers dumb down our games.

  6. Are you on crack or something?

    Comment by Jacco — June 25, 2013 @ 11:46 am

  7. I have to agree with Jacco…. 2 dumbed down the game… Three was such a piece of garbage, I mean renown instead of XP that’s not an rpg…. That’s how popular can you get with people that don’t exist… Not to mention the fact they even hated on their own game in 3 what a joke and they knew it. I’m hoping 4 goes back to it’s roots. If remaking the original is away to get there than by all means yes for gods sake yes.

  8. II, and III We’re such shit. I believe IV will be the worst to come, yet. Journey is most likely a miserable turd. Even The characters look gay now. At least they brought plate back in III

    Comment by Sgtvurk#1120 — June 28, 2013 @ 4:57 am

  9. Yes. Was sort of lame. The original was so much more creepy.

    Comment by Sgtvurk#1120 — June 28, 2013 @ 4:57 am

  10. I’ve liked all the Fable games (yes, even two, I don’t understand the extreme amount of hate that one is getting…not as good as the original, probably. But a bad game? No.) Until 3. I mean, i’m replaying it now, and I find it less offensive now as I did when I first gave it a go, but its still…It just doesn’t seem like a Fable game. It seems like a Fable ripoff. Or parody.

  11. i kind of hope its a prequel to the original fable. ive been praying for a better game then 2 and 3 and the journey. i really want this game to live up to the expectations

    Comment by KP — July 4, 2013 @ 12:57 pm

  12. If it doesen’t get released for the PC i’ma go Sword of Aeon’s on their butts.

    Comment by Pootis — July 5, 2013 @ 12:43 pm

  13. Fable 2 sucked because it has nothing to do with Fable except the words “Bloodline” and the title.

    Comment by Pootis — July 5, 2013 @ 12:45 pm

  14. Its an HD remake of Fable for the 360 available this summer on XBLA they showed a screen shot and posted info on the Xbox facebook page a few months back.

    Comment by Jonathan G. Sandoval — July 11, 2013 @ 3:29 am

  15. I’d rather Fable 4 :(….(not the journey). I would rather a game I haven’t beaten already and I’d like to experience a new fable rather then this…. it was a nice game,yes;however, I’m saddened they brought it back instead of making a new one.

    Comment by Dylan Cormier — July 13, 2013 @ 2:16 pm

  16. popular can you get with people that don’t exist
    Yeah just like hobbes an hallowmen DO exist?

    Comment by Justin Shepherd — July 24, 2013 @ 1:51 pm

  17. I’m sorry did I imply that anything in this game was real? if I did then maybe I should apologize. But I won’t because I didn’t. Under the assumption of your post only one thing can be taken from it either you’re misunderstanding what I said. Which would be considered my fault since one has to put things into words so other’s understand them. Or you’re trying to imply something from your brain that was not part of my sentence. But you implying something of your own terms even though it had nothing to do with what I said only brings your comment into a status of non-topic.

  18. umm no, i dont want a camera watching me 24/7 just to play a remake of a game

    Comment by Mike Hunt — July 27, 2013 @ 11:12 pm

  19. Is it that hard to turn the cam away when not using it? A webcam for your computer, the cam for PS3 and PS4 or the cam for Xbox 360 is no safer then the cam for Xbox One. The only differense is that Microsoft states that its posible that other people can use your cam if they know how to.

  20. Big fan of the fable franchise, I’m really looking forward for Fable 4, this could be one of the best games ever, still waiting for the official announcement from Lionhead. They have the best chance to make this new series something big, just fix some of the flaws from the last games and add additional new features to make us fan happy.

    Comment by JeffreyNorman — August 15, 2013 @ 1:36 am

  21. Microsoft has already changed that policy for Xbox 1.
