Lionhead Studios is set to release two whole soundtracks for the new game Fable Legends

Russell Shaw, who has worked on all the Fable series soundtracks, has composed over 3 hours of music. 

Fable Legends: The Rosewood is a whopping 31 track composition with a flair for the adventurous side of the games. And it's counter-part, Fable Legends: A Tale of Two Sides, is more focused on following the combat-based music.

A Tale of Two Sides is a direct reference to the new game feature where you can play on either side of the battle. You can be the evil villain who makes the hero's work for their victory, or in a band of heroes.

You can even get a sneak peak at one of the tracks on the Fable Legends official website. The track they show is reminiscent of Fable 2 with the music box and flurry of recognizable notes. However, it does give the feel of a new game. 

And Fable Legends is looking to be a completely different game from any other in the fantasy series. While some of us may have hoped for a Fable 4, Lionhead has stopped such thinking. 

It must be quite the undertaking for the sole focus. Having two soundtracks makes a lot more sense when considering how large this project must be.

Both albums are available for pre-order and will be released on March 3rd, 2016.

Fable Legends Announced at Gamescom https://www.gameskinny.com/i3tbi/fable-legends-announced-at-gamescom https://www.gameskinny.com/i3tbi/fable-legends-announced-at-gamescom Wed, 21 Aug 2013 15:14:41 -0400 Synzer

Anyone who enjoys Fable will be excited about this news. Fable Legends was officially announced at Gamescom as a 5-player game. It may not be Fable 4 or the rumored Fable MMO, but it still looks good. The disappointment many fans had with Fable 3, and Fable multiplayer in general, may have them skeptical, but this looks like a title to at least pay attention to.

4-player co-op

In Fable Legends, players can choose between different characters that all have specific abilities like classes, and complete dungeons. Only four types were shown in the video, but I bet there will be more available. From what I've seen in the video, players will be fighting through whatever obstacles the villain player puts in their way. A.I will be substituted for human heroes, so I can assume the same will go for villains.

Still an explorable world?

This I can't tell at this time. Based on the information it looks like a matchmaking type of game where you play a round of heroes versus villain, then move on to the next match. There is, however, player progression and emotes so it's possible that it will have the same free-roam style world that Fable 1-3 had. If this is the case, it will be interesting to see how the villain aspect is done.

Be the villain - that sends others to do everything

I'm sure this aspect of the game will have mixed feeling from players. If you choose to be the villain, your game play changes to top-down RTS-style.

It's a cool concept to be the sort of classical villain, controlling others to do your bidding and changing the obstacles the heroes have to overcome, but at the same time, it would be nice to have traditional Fable game play.

This changes the style of the game from what we're used to so far. Fable II, for example, you would make decisions throughout the game on what your character's persona would be. You could change mid-way through the game that you wanted to be that heroic knight, instead of that dark overlord. In Fable Legends you must choose at the beginning of the game how you want the dice to roll. Whether you choose villain or hero, you won't be able to change.

The future of Fable 

Though I can't say for sure without more information, it seems the Fable series is going to continue to go different routes from the original games. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, just... different. It's great in a way for innovation and experimenting on new game ideas, but some players just want some good 'ole fashioned Fable. Anyways, this is one to keep an eye on for Fable fans, or anyone else that may find this style interesting. Fable Legends will be an Xbox One exclusive, but no further details have been given.
