You can now be the villain you always wanted to be in Fable Legends -- you know, if that's your thing. Lionhead Studios' latest release seeks to bolster players who have always sought to wreak havoc and destruction across the landscape of their Fable game with "villain mode," where players can control the action from above; every spell and challenge.
The player who chooses to play as the villain orchestrates every single move from afar, issuing attack orders to take on the Heroes at every turn. In short, you can wreck your friends (or enemies) if you so choose, and that's totally awesome. But that's not all Fable Legends is about.
At its heart, this is still a classic Fable game. Each player's tale begins at Brightlodge, which is more or less the "social" heart of Fable Legends. You play as Sterling, a classic Fable character, who begins his quest in Brightlodge. Winter and Inga can join your quest for cooperative play, so you can finally play Fable the way you've wanted to -- with friends at your beck and call. With this team of three you can enjoy Fable Legends as a true co-op game with two additional characters and a decidedly Mass Effect-like slant to gameplay with plenty of sex jokes and potty humor thrown in for good measure.
It looks to be an interesting time, and you can join in on the Fable Legends beta, available this fall. Sign up now here if you're interested, and we'll have to sync up to play together.
