Fable Legends Announced for Windows 10 PC, Multiplayer Beta Signups Underway

FableLegends_1

Lionhead’s 4-vs-1 multiplayer spin on the Fable series, previously announced only for Xbox One, is now also coming to PC as a Windows 10 exclusive. (No, the game will not work on any previous version of Windows.)

This is all part of Microsoft’s new initiative to bridge the gap between PC and Xbox console play using Windows 10. Not only will Fable Legends launch simultaneously later this year on Xbox One and PC, but it will also be one of the first AAA standout games to show off Xbox Live cross-device multiplayer between the two platforms, the 4-vs-1 setup to support any combination of players from either system.

Fable Legends for Windows 10 is still in active development so system requirements beyond the operating system can not be confirmed at this time. However, the game is being developed on Unreal Engine 4 and will support DX12 graphics cards. As a native PC game, mouse and keyboard controls will be fully supported in addition to Xbox One gamepads.

Closed beta testing for the Xbox One version is already in progress, but in light of today’s announcement registration has now opened to test the Windows 10 version in the upcoming multiplayer beta. Visit www.fablelegends.com/betasignup to apply for the beta. Of course, you’ll also need to download the Windows 10 Technical Preview beta once it becomes available.

Acclaimed English actor Jeremy Irons (or a really damn good sound-alike) narrates a new trailer introducing Fable Legends for Windows 10 PC. Hopefully that’s a sign that he will be lending his voice to the game itself in some capacity.
