Frequently Asked Questions

Here’s a numbered Q&A with Craig Oman, Lionhead Producer of Fable Anniversary.

Question 1: We’re definitely excited to go back to Albion, but why did the team decide to remake a game that’s almost a decade old?

The original Fable is a very special game to many of our fans and we decided to remake it for them. They constantly sent us messages on Facebook and Twitter asking for remake and with the 10 year anniversary coming up we thought the timing was right.

Question 2: What’s the first thing fans who played the original “Fable” will notice about the new version of the game?

Apart from how good everything looks, I think the first thing the fans will notice is that it still feels like the same game and that was very important to us. We wanted to add fidelity to the world and to the characters without changing the core experience.

Question 3: Did the development team have to overcome any particular challenges in bringing the game from the original Xbox to the Xbox 360?

One of the most challenging aspects was just dealing with the sheer complexity of the original game. There are many systems running throughout the game dealing with everything from player morphing to the NPC AI, all of which were combined with the main Gold and Silver quests and the even more challenging random Bronze quests. We spent a lot of time making sure that all of this was still working just like it did in the original.

Question 4: We’ve heard there’s a new save system that’s been designed specifically for “Fable Anniversary”. Could you tell us a bit about what’s changed?

We brought the save system up to more modern day standards. The original game had a ‘World Save’ when you were not on a quest and very confusing ‘Hero Save’ for when you were on a quest. The major problem being that you couldn’t save your progress during most of the quests, so if you died or had to switch off the console you would lose all of your progress. We changed all of this so you now have checkpoint saves when you are on a quest to automatically save your progress and you can create a manual save at any point in the game.

Question 5: It sounds like there are a lot of new weapons and items in “Fable Anniversary”. What’s your favorite? Are there any weapons that longtime fans will recognize from other games?

The new Will Staff is a firm favorite for us. If you are like some of the guys in the office and you try to play the game only using magic, there was never really a weapon that made sense for you to carry around. But now you can carry around a bad-ass staff (or a lute?!).

Question 6: Did you know from the start of the development process that you wanted to include content from “The Lost Chapters”?

“The Lost Chapters” is very much the definitive version in our mind, so there was never any doubt for us. How could we possibly recreate this game without including the awesome boss fight at the end of “The Lost Chapters”?! #SPOILERS

Question 7: There are some really cool SmartGlass features in the game. Which do you think the community will appreciate and use the most??

SmartGlass is a very exciting technology for us and it has been the main way for us to add extra detail and information to the game without modifying the original design. Fans of the original game will really enjoying reading the character bios as they play through and learning even more about everyone’s backstory. In every region you can also check out screenshots from the original game to see exactly how far we have pushed the visual quality since the original.

Every tall Oak tree needed to have its acorn moment, this is yours.

Tip: The Snowspire Charity Shop isn’t just a place to get rid of unwanted items, it’s also a perfect way to improve your morality. — Donating high value items will also increase the chance of bargain items appearing for sale. So there’s really no excuse to be stingy.

Chapter 2: Apprentice Training

Graduate from the Heroes Guild to become a real Hero.

Tip: Tresspassing on someone’s property is a crime. The villagers will warn you before resorting to calling the Guards. The guards will then also warn you before attacking! Night-time ‘visits’ are likely to be more rewarding, but you must remember to sneak!

Let’s do some Heroes Guild Quests in Lookout Point, starting with the Wasps Menace.

Tip: Some potions boost your attributes permanently! These Elixirs are extremely rare so keep an eye out for them.

Chapter 4: Bowerstone

Here we do some Heroes Guild Quests in Bowerstone, namely The Sick Child.

Tip: Whenever you have enough Experience to level up at the Guild, your Guild Seal will flash with the level-up icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. — To improve your attributes and acquire new abilities, head back to the Map Room in the Guild, and walk into the Experience Spending Platform, opposite the Guild Cullis Gate.

Chapter 5: Darkwood

Let’s do some more Heroes Guild Quests in Darkwood, begin with the Trader Escort.

Tip: When the pressures of being a Hero become too much, drown your troubles in some sweet alcohol. Warning: May affect motor skills. Generosity is often appreciated by other pub goers too…
