Playground Games Fable 4 leaks – a soft reboot that involves multiplayer and time travel

Fable 2

Fable 4 is rumoured to be a part of the Xbox showcase at E3 2019, and Playground Games' entry will be a soft reboot with multiplayer and time travel.

E3 2019 is literally right around the corner, and there are now leaks popping up all over the internet. Watch Dogs 3 has apparently been confirmed as Watch Dogs Legion, and now the first details for the rumoured Fable 4 by Playground Games have leaked. And, if true, the next instalment in the once renowned Xbox series will be huge with the inclusion of multiplayer and the involvement of time travel.

Fable 4 is rumoured to be a part of Microsoft’s E3 2019 showcase, and it’ll apparently be a launch title for the next-gen Xbox console.

The first supposed leaks for Fable 4 have surfaced on Reddit in a comment by LagSwag1, and it details a bunch of titbits that were included in a now removed video.

Gaming insider Nibel picked up on the Reddit post over on Twitter, possibly lending some credibility to the leak.

According to the leak, Fable 4 will be the series’ biggest instalment yet by a fair margin as it’ll apparently involve time travel and different planets.

Per LagSwag’s comment, Fable 4 won’t take place on Albion as a mad king with control of the Spire supposedly used his one wish to destroy the planet with an asteroid, meaning Theresa and the Guild of Heroes are on a different planet accessed by a demon door.

As if that wasn’t exciting enough, the leak further suggests that Fable 4 will finally have multiplayer and that the series will return to its medieval roots after toying with modern industrialisation in Fable 3.

You can find the rumour bulletpoints list for Fable 4 below:

  • First/Third Person
  • In-depth character creator
  • Completely open
  • No guns 
  • Can ignore the main quest and never become a hero
  • Players can build towns, ties into the main quest heavily if you get the bad ending and fail
  • Multiplayer
  • Unreal engine

Fable 4 not taking place on Albion suggests that this is more of a soft reboot rather than a faithful sequel to the abhorrent Fable 3, which – if you ask me – is fantastic news.
