Albion and Aurora are gone. “Lands reduced to fables.” The Spire was rebuilt and used by a mad king to wish that an asteroid would strike the planet. He also wished it would happen again in the far future. Eons later and everything is new (medieval themed, new continents) and you have to stop the destruction of the planet again. Theresa and a Heroes Guild are preserved on another planet via a demon door. Time Travel heavily involved in play. Jack of Blades returns.
As you can see, the details of Fable 4 appear to mimic a lot of what made Skyrim so fun with the endless re-play-ability and options with customization and open-world experiences where you can just ignore the primary story, should you choose. Seriously though, we have played Skyrim like, 100 times (and all those memes about always ending up making a Stealth/Archer? Yeah, that hit way too close to home).
We won’t post the video here, since it will likely end up getting copyright claimed anyway, but it shouldn’t be too hard to find if you do a little Googling. What we will say, is that if the above is what we can expect to end up in the final game, then we need to prepare to lose a lot of weekend hours to Fable 4.
