Fable is at last becoming a reality, with Lionhead confirming US and European release dates for the long awaited Peter Molyneux RPG. American Xbox owners should be receiving their copies on September 21, with an October launch following in Europe. Fable seems to have been in production for an age and a half, and with Molyneux?s input stamped all over it, it is expected to be a colossal title.
For RPG fans, this is likely to be the most important Xbox title of the year, especially now that Level 5?s True Fantasy Online has been scrapped by Microsoft. Being an Xbox exclusive title, Fable will also be an important addition to the console?s catalogue during the highly competitive and congested run up to Christmas. With titles like this and Halo 2 on the shelves, Microsoft will be hoping to shift a fair few machines on the back of such eagerly-anticipated games.
