Fable Anniversary HD revamp coming to Xbox 360
by John Callaham



First released in 2004 for the original Xbox, the fantasy RPG Fable became one of the more popular titles made for Microsoft's first game console. The game spawned two direct sequels as well as a spin-off game, all released for the Xbox 360.

Today, Microsoft announced that developer Lionhead will be taking a trip back in time and will work to make Fable Anniversary, a graphical revamp of the first game for the more powerful Xbox 360. The game, which will have its original content as well as the Fable: The Lost Chapters expansion pack, will be released late in 2013.

Microsoft states:

Fable Anniversary uses the power (of the) Xbox 360 to bring Fable to life like never before. The graphics are substantially updated with new lighting, textures, models, facial and cut scene animations, and more, all in 1080p HD resolution. In addition, Fable Anniversary includes a new interface, save system and nearly non-existent loading times, making the immersive journey through the dangerous and mysterious world of Albion even more seamless.

Fable Anniversary will also have Xbox Live Achievements, something the original game did not have. Microsoft previously went back and released a revamped version of the original Xbox-based Halo for the Xbox 360 in 2011.

I hope this comes for PC as well. Loved the original Fable.

Fable: The Lost Chapters is probably my favourite game in the Fable series.

Excited for this, really hoping the pricing scheme will be similar to Halo:CE Anniversary; MSRP of $40 new.
