The game will offer a more cartoony take on the Fable universe that seemingly offers a wide assortment of play styles and four player co-op. Lionhead is still credited as its developer.

The official blurb reads: “Fable Heroes is a fresh spin on the beloved Fable franchise in which up to four players play both cooperatively and competitively in this hack-and-slash adventure.
