London, U.K., September 3rd, 2015 ― UK publisher, Titan Books, has partnered with Microsoft owned video games developer, Lionhead Studios, for an art book, ‘THE ART OF FABLE® LEGENDS’, leveraging the mesmerizing graphics of Fable Legends, the much-anticipated new instalment in the ten year established BAFTA winning action and adventure series, Fable. This will be the most beautiful Albion yet and the book will showcase the rich environments and unique characters in the game as well as featuring a detailed game development history and interviews with key creators. Titan will also release a 500-copy, limited edition, version of the book featuring a unique high-end jacket, slipcase and collectible art print signed by the artist.
Building on the award winning franchise’s rich heritage Fable Legends is set to redefine games genres allowing four heroes to play cooperatively against a human or computer controlled villain over the Xbox Live multiplayer online service. The game is set to launch exclusively as a free-to-play title on PC (Windows 10) and Xbox One later this year. The graphics and breadth of the gameplay are that expected of a AAA title; nevertheless, the free-to-play format allows fans to play the full game, including all heroes in rotation without any in-game purchases.
‘THE ART OF FABLE LEGENDS’, written by Martin Robinson, offers fans of the game exclusive insight into its visual development through all stages of production as well as access to rarely seen art. The book will also feature detailed creator commentary from the Lionhead Studios art team, giving readers added insight into the evolution of the game.
“The Art of Fable Legends gives fans a complete look at the thrilling concepts and designs behind the game,” says Titan Books editor Omar Khan. “This is fantastical gameplay that takes its cues from European folktales, legends and fairy tales – always peppered with a charming, Monty Python-esque sense of humor."
Tinderbox, dedicated digital division of leading global brand extension agency, Beanstalk, was appointed as Fable’s licensing agent in 2014, bringing Lionhead Studios and Titan Books together.
