You might have heard last month that Lionhead studios was officially shut down by Microsoft. The studio was working on the Fable Legends game prior to its closure and now that game won’t be coming out. Fable Legends might not be happening anymore but a group of developers who previously worked at Lionhead are developing a new digital card game called Fable Fortune.
Fable Fortune was also being developed at Lionhead before the studio was closed. Microsoft has now given permission to Flaming Fowl Studios to continue with the development of this new digital card game. Fable Fortune is expected to be released for Xbox One and PC late next year.
According to a report, this digital card game will be familiar to those who have played games like Hearthstone. Players will be able to choose from eight planned deck-altering heroes. They will be looking to reduce their opponents’ health to zero using spells.
The team working on this game is looking to improve this genre as a whole with the newest addition. It features a 3D art style that’s more engaging, offers a full online co-op mode against AI-powered bosses, features a leveling system for cards regularly used, Trophy Cards, themed decks, and much more.
Microsoft may have allowed Flaming Fowl Studios to create this game but the studio is going to use Kickstarter to raise the finances required to fully develop and publish the game. Fable Fortune’s Kickstarter campaign will go live tomorrow at 10 am ET.
