Lionhead Studios have revealed the latest addition to the roster of playable characters for their upcoming hack-and-slash adventure spin-off, Fable Heroes. Lucien Fairfax, former mayor of Bowerstone and the big bad from Fable II, will be joining a line up which so far consists of fan favourites Hammer, Reaver, Garth, Scythe, Gabriel and Hero, with more still to be announced. Each character is represented in game as a cute hero doll and fans of the series will recognise these as the rare collectable items coveted in the retail games.
Fable Heroes was recently revealed to be included in Microsoft’s Arcade Next promotion alongside Trials Evolution, Minecraft and Bloodforge, and will be one of the first XBLA games to feature a 400 point gamerscore. The game will be released May 2 for a reasonable 800 MSP.
