Fable: The Journey
Fable: The Journey is the fourth game in the series, and will take place 5 years after the end of Fable III. An evil entity known as The Corruption is in pursuit of you, and you must reach the Spire while encountering all sorts of adventures across Albion.
As you can tell from the screenshot, Fable: The Journey is a first person game. That's because it will exclusively be a Kinect title. You will be using your arms to control how your character interacts with the world. You can cast spells, and craft yourself a shield, spear and hammers to defeat enemies. You can also craft fishing rods and telescopes for mini game fun. And as the screenshot shows, you must control the reigns of a horse carriage.
This is a huge step from the traditional adventure RPG genre of the past Fable games. It seems like a lot of fans are disappointed with the Kinect addition, but I will keep an open mind and try it out. Who knows, it might actually be fun!
