'Fable Anniversary' (X360) Goes Gold, Pre-Order Incentives - Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 15, 2014 @ 1:41 p.m. PST

Powered by the Unreal Engine 3, Fable Anniversary is a modern remastering of the classic featuring HD graphics, almost instant loading times, an all-new interface, achievements, SmartGlass support and more.

In Fable Anniversary you play as The Hero, an orphan whose destiny you shape through in-game decisions that influence not only his development as a hero, but the fate of the entire realm.  In addition to “Fable’s” original storyline, Fable: Anniversary includes the expansion pack, “Fable: The Lost Chapters.”

Fable Anniversary uses the power of the Xbox 360 to bring “Fable” to life like never before. The graphics are substantially updated with new lighting, textures, models, facial and cut scene animations, and more, all in 1080p HD resolution. In addition, Fable Anniversary includes a new interface, save system and nearly non-existent loading times, making the immersive journey through the dangerous and mysterious world of Albion even more seamless.

Pre-Order Bonuses

  • Peiratēs Pre Order Pack
    • Peiratēs Outfit: Peiratēs was a famous plunderer, known for travelling uncharted waters to take entire cargo ships hostage for their most expensive items. He was also known by the name "Pete" in less formal circles. 
    • Peiratēs Cutlass: A weapon used at sea needs to be both practical and effective. Peiratēs spent years refining this weapon so that the hook could be used to catch fish, the tip could be used to eat fish, and the blade could be used to slit a man's throat.
  • Snowspire Pre Order Pack
    • Snowspire Guard Outfit: Made from genuine horse hair, this outfit is said to calm even the most vocal of criminals. 
    • The Jackarse: An age-old popular pasttime was run by a chap named Jack, who used to slap people around the face with a dead fish until they fell onto their arse. The rest, as they say, is history...
  • Apollo's Pre Order Pack
    • Apollo's Outfit: Apollo is the pseudonym for the leader of The Grey Company, the man responsible for monitoring Lady Grey's financial investments. As fearsome as that may sound, he had a reputation for being incredibly nice, often using his own money to bail out any villager that couldn't afford that months rent.
    • Apollo's Crossbow: Based on a centuries old concept, Apollo wanted to create a modern crossbow with the feel of a relic from the past - and thus this crossbow was born. Dependable in combat, but also pretty tasty to look at.

Be sure to keep an eye on your favourite retailers to find out which will be offering each content pack in the near future! And for the collectors among you, don’t panic, Lionhead will be making these items available for purchase on the Xbox Game Store later in the year.
