Fable Legends will be free-to-play

Lionhead's next RPG will update episodically and feature microtransactions

The rumours were true – Lionhead’s Xbox One and PC multiplayer title Fable Legends will be free-to-play.

That’s not just on PC, either, with the Xbox version also confirmed by Kotaku as being F2P. The free game will come with a story’s worth of free quests, with more to be released episodically after launch.

There won’t be any game time limiters or in-game currency, as seen in so many F2P mobile titles. Instead, the four available heroes will be offered individually on a two week rotation. When a character you’ve levelled is switched out, players can either wait for them to return (complete with all previously earned items and XP) or pay to access them permanently.
