Fable Legends open beta delayed to spring 2016

Closed beta to add 100,000 additional players.

Fable Legends

Microsoft and Lionhead Studios have delayed the Fable Legends open beta from its planned fall 2015 release window to spring 2016.

Additionally, Lionhead Studios will invite an additional 100,000 players to the Fable Legends closed beta over the next few weeks. Sign-ups are available at FableLegends.com.

“We’ve decided to extend our closed beta to continue to listen to feedback from our players and add features and polish that will make a real difference,” Lionhead said in a blog post. “This means Fable Legends won’t release into open beta this holiday as previously announced.

“To be honest, we didn’t anticipate just how big Fable Legends is becoming. It’s simply the most ambitious game we’ve ever created at Lionhead. We’ve built a unique and innovative multiplayer experience combining RPG and RTS gameplay which allows you to play, and use your gear seamlessly, across Xbox One and Windows 10. On top of this, we’ve built a beautiful new world full of grand stories and adventures. And it’s taking more time than we thought.”
