    Project Ego Rumours

    Back when Fable was in the early stages of developement and still known as Project Ego, there were alot of rumours for possible features circling the net and I'm just curious which ones all of you might have heard.

    I remember reading an IGN article ages ago that mentioned that Fable would include a 2-4 multiplayer mode, I think it was the article included below but I only had time to have a quick flick through it.

    What other features did you hear about? :)

    ALOT of content was removed because people just wanted it released and Lionhead were pressured into its launch so unfinished content had to be removed or hidden in the files as some members here have found out when modding.

    Who knows what they may add (or takeaway) it will be a long time before Fable 2 is released so they could include anything they wanted. They even took out the idea of having 'other' heroes (AI) that also completed quests and tried to challenge you at being the grestest hero or villian in Albion.

    There you have it, the solo path is the best path. No need to watch over your little sidekick when your trying to take down a troll.

    I agree. You swing your sword so fast you could get him so he wouldn't last long anyway.

    he wouldn't even last that long, I'd probably just let him act as balverine food.

    Well, ok. No to AI sidekicks, but multiplayer would be ace. Doing quests with friends.

    I agree. Shame that they were forced to remove that feature due to the impending deadline.

    Re: Project Ego Rumours

    I enjoyed the whole lonely hero aspect- but at times it would have been cool to team up with somebody. It would have definately been an awesome feature if a friend could import their save and play alongside you but anytime they werent connected your character would have been alone- when they loaded their game save new quests and options could appear and the character could be introduced via a cut scene or something. Shame about that feature not being available on Fable but hopefully with F2 they will do something similar. Perhaps a second player will be able to plug in and play as the dog companion that is rumoured to be included....
