Anything that affects gameplay can be found or earned by playing, and players can choose to spend real money on cosmetic items and other in-game content. Any items a player earns or purchases on one device are automatically synced to others.
New Ways to Play the Hero
In Fable Legends, you’re never alone. Play cooperatively with up to three friends and discover the game’s quests and content together, or go the single-player route and take on a party of three heroic AI companions that follow your lead through stories and adventures. Play whatever style you want, when you want. After all, you’re the Hero. And just what kind of Hero you choose to play is up to you. Fable Legends takes you back to a time when Albion is teeming with Heroes, so there’s bound to be one for you. Fearless warriors. Cunning tricksters. Masters of Will. Paragons of virtue. Heartless mercenaries. Intoxicated brawlers. Chicken chasers. They’re all here, and many more besides. You’ll be able to customize your abilities, alter your appearance, and advance your Hero by earning experience and finding new armour, weapons, and treasures.
Or Is Evil Your Thing?
Fable has always presented opportunities for mischief and villainy, and in Fable Legends fans can play the bad guy as never before. As the Villain, players take control of the many creatures, minions, traps, and environmental hazards that Heroes must overcome. Villain play combines elements of strategic decision making and tactical control. When those pitiful Heroes enter an area, you’ll choose which minions are sent into battle and where to place these creatures to maximize their effectiveness. Once the fight begins, you issue the orders for your creatures to execute: telling them where to go, which Hero to attack, and what abilities to use to ensure your evil plans come to fruition.
All for One. Or One Takes All.
You can play with other people in a four-player cooperative experience or as the Villain. Your Heroic party could be all human players, or a mix of players and AI-controlled Heroes. You can switch easily between single player and multiplayer styles of play whenever you decide, or when a friend signs on.
As a Villain, you can challenge parties of human players, AI opponents, or mixed groups. The combination of experiences make Fable Legends into a unique experience for 5 players: 4 Heroes vs 1 Villain. Which will you choose?
