Pardon my ignorance, lifelong Nintendo fan here who is heavily considering buying Series X. Is Fable similar to Zelda but in more of a sarcastic way?

Its nowhere near Zelda. Zelda is exploration game while Fable is straight forward game with little exploration. It is almost like saying that Gears of War and Mass Effect are similar games just because both games are played from third person and they both have guns

Its basically move  from A-> B -> C, and your guided the whole way, judgeing from the video above.
But this is a older game, perphaps a newer fable would be more modern in its take, and not hold your hand, and direct you so much.

This video does a much better job of selling it:

it goes deep into the choices in fable, to be good/evil, sire offspring, marry, get a job to earn, ect.
highlighting what makes fable,... well fable.

Well, you can still go wherever you feel like to and accept sidequests and so on.

It is not A --> B --> C if you don't want it to be.
You can say that about every OpenWorld game ever created anyway.

Have you played the Fable games?



Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

Definitely excited for it, my avatar is from a piece of concept art from Playground believed to be from the Fable reboot. The team they built up seems top notch.

could you link me those so I can add them to the OP?

The last one is Bowerstone from Fable 1 which was done by one of the Playground RPG concept artists and was our first hint that they were rebooting Fable.

How much experiance does Playgrounds have makeing RPGs?
This is gonna be a 1st for basically everyone on the team right?

A few of the lead and senior devs have previous RPG experience. Quest designer worked on Borderlands 2 and 3, which are RPG shooters. The Lead Environment Artist previously worked at Ubisoft on The Division 1 and 2, both of which are RPG shooters. The principle environment artist previously worked at Bioware on Mass Effect. The lead animator previously worked at Dambuster on the upcoming Dead Island 2, and Dead Island is an action RPG. The lead technical artist previously worked at Ubisoft on The Division 1 and 2. The Lead UI designer previously worked at Bungie on Destiny 2 and Guerilla on Horizon Zero Dawn. They also have several former Lionhead devs in non-senior positions, as well as others non senior devs with RPG experience.

To me Fable was always about the role playing experience inside a fantastical world. So long as I can buy a house of my choosing, renovate it as I see fit, and can marry any NPC I choose I’ll be happy



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

Fable 1 was fucking amazing, fable 2 i didnt play and fable 3 was ok but the world was not interesting , fable 1 had a medieval carttony Style that was só cool, so Much costumisation , my character was só fucking badass with a huge insane hammer.

I hope this turns out to BE good.

That actually doesnt sound so bad.

Different studios with different talents. Not unlike Monolith has a different studio that works on Mario Kart.

Basically Fable has smaller "maps/sandboxes" which you can explore in order to collect chests, keys, gargoyles and so forth, each sandbox has set defined paths out of the area.
It does guide you along a progression path to push the story narrative.

Fable 2 did open things up significantly over Fable 1.

It's not open world by any means, but it's not a linear corridor either.
