Folks, you’ve waited long enough for this moment, and it looks like you’ll be waiting longer yet to actually play it, but the Fable reboot has once again graced the stage of the Xbox Showcase at not-E3 2023.
The Fable revival was announced nearly three years ago. Since its underwhelming 2020 reveal trailer, the game showed up exactly zero times at other Microsoft events.
This all changes with today’s trailer, which kicked off the Xbox showcase with none other than British actor Richard Ayoade, who not only narrates the trailer, he appears to be playing a villain? It’s hard to say.
The trailer brings a mix of in-game footage and in-engine footage, though sadly we didn’t quite get to see how the game is going to be played. We also did not get a release date or even a target, so we’re sort of back to square one.
Nevertheless, it’s good to finally see Fable.
