Fable was one of the games that helped put the original Xbox on the map. Now, on the eve of the launch of the Xbox One, Microsoft has announced Fable Anniversary for the Xbox 360.
Fable Anniversary is in development at Lionhead Studios and will be released this holiday season. The new edition will include a graphical overhaul, “almost instant loading times,” an all-new interface, Achievements, and Xbox SmartGlass support. The game will also come complete with the Fable’s only expansion, The Lost Chapters.
“We’re really excited to bring Fable to Xbox 360,” said Ted Timmins, Lead Designer on Fable Anniversary. “It’s the game that the Fable community has been asking for, so we wanted to make sure Fable Anniversary delivered the definitive Fable experience for both long-time fans and newcomers to the franchise.”
Timmons also promised that chicken punting will return. In fact, not only will the popular pastime be included in Fable Anniversary, Timmons revealed, “There’s now a leaderboard for [it]!”
