want it to return to medieval albion, have a new enchanting ost and retain the same british humor from fable lost chapters that many similar rpgs of its time severely lacked

Musts

Dog
Epic music
Bowerstone or at least some locations from previous games
A growing up dynamic again from childhood to old age
Some fawlty tower-esque humour.
Dark parts that are left to interpretation
Solid story
Amazing British voice casting.
Real consequences for decisions made in-game.

Nice to have

Theresa
Hobbes / Balvarines
A subtle nod to LH somewhere like gravestones in F2
Great open world co-op
Detailed Hero customisation

MUST NOT

Be rushed
promise things and then don't deliver
be broken in parts
be changed so much that it doesn't reflect a fable game
DLC monetised to the absolute taking the p level.
take fable the journey as canon aha

Read through everyone's posts, I pretty much agree with all. Especially "Ludna" who suggested that Fable must be more mod friendly. Just look at how mods complemented Skyrim. I think Fable can also be a Mod heaven game..

Anyways, what I would love to see;

- In lost chapters there was a region called Knothole Glade, I just love that area with the surrounding forests. It was dark from all the trees, rainy, mysterious, it felt like a proper fairy tale forest. Didn't really see a region like this in the post Fable games. I would love to see them bring back mystical forest environments

- In fable 3 there were these scenes as king where you had to make decisions in the throne room to decide between repair / upgrade something or keep the money in the treasury. I loved those events, they can bring something like this back and really elaborate on it

- Please move away from modern era (industrial era). Fantasy worlds & magic are always more relatable with "Old Kingdom" setting

- And lastly, in lost chapters you where rescued by Maze & he enrolled you at the hero's guild for training, almost like Hogwarts in HP. I actually loved that (maybe because I'm a HP fanatic) but would love to see something similar in fable 4. And wouldn't mind if game followed protagonist from child to adulthood.

don't want to be the pessimist but why are there only 24 post about this topic? Don't understand, fable 4 is hugely anticipated

Most likely because there aren't many people posting here at the moment.

It'll pick up at some point, hopefully

There has been very little information released about the game and I think people are a little wary of speculating features of a game that we know nothing about currently. It will pick up when more information is released and people have something to go off.

Totally agree with your statement Dark Drakan. I have very high hopes for this game but I don’t want to get to excited for it until I can see what it’s about. Fingers crossed that we get more information on this one soon

I love the fable series especially fable 2 so much,I decided to make a fable 2(any fable really) group on Facebook.



Any and all are welcome,We can share our characters and talk about their made up back stories,And just talk about fable in general (I hope people actually join.)



It's called Fable 2 Lovers.

Basically there isn't much traffic here because Fable has broken all of our hearts at least twice each.

It's so hard to commit to the pure and unalloyed love of the series I had when I was [checks watch] 10 minutes younger by my estimation.

Yes. Hobbes. More than last time too. lol really though one of my main hopes is that property owning comes back and better than ever. I always really liked just taking it easy and earning gold and making my way up the economy.

They had a world that felt alive especially in Fable 2 - where if you wanted you could just ignore the main quest, buy a house, get a family, or even make enough gold to buy castle fairfax before you've even reached the spire. Correct me If I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure thats possible?

I've seen people hate on the idea of settlement building but I personally think it sounds very fitting for Fable and if the rumours are true about settlement building I'll be very happy. Maybe not actual settlement building like Fallout 4 - I couldn't be bothered to get creative lol. But owning towns and expanding them until you have a whole business empire on par with something like Reaver Industries! Things like that. Speaking of Reaver I'll miss him if this is a different timeline.

Yeah, I am also curious about the settlement building, could be fun and interesting. Building your own fairytale town in the middle of the forest

Just wanted to mention something I noticed this weekend. I was playing a little bit of the lost chapters again, and the general theme of the townsfolks & accents are actually really Welsh. And I realised that that whole atmosphere background sounds really made Fable so unique and memorable to me
