Lionhead Studios have today released their latest game, Fable Heroes. A new take on the popular Fable franchise, Heroes is a four-player beat-em-up / hack-n-slash title that's designed to appeal to a wide range of gamers (including younger audiences).
Features from the press release:
Heroic Challenges: Band together with up to four friends to defeat enemies or compete against them to collect gold coins. Players who dominate the competition will unlock items and level up.
Albion with a Fun Twist: "Fable Heroes" originates from the imaginations of Lionhead employees who have been fans of the franchise since its inception and delivers a fresh take on Albion with unique art and aesthetics. The world includes familiar regions, enemies and cheeky characters from the "Fable" series.
Skilled Progression: Players can battle to become an unstoppable force in Albion by crushing friends and foes to level up. As heroes advance, game features will unlock, such as finishing moves, flourishes and power ups.
Ever Changing Gameplay: Prevail in minigames to gain new powers and unlock increasingly difficult levels to beat previous scores and climb the Xbox LIVE leaderboards. In addition, set the difficulty level from the start to challenge both experts and novices alike.
