Microsoft today announced that Fable Legends will be free to play. They have already announced that Fable Legends will be cross-playable on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. With both these announcement, Lionhead Studios is trying to make the game available to as many players as possible.
So how does Fable Legends work as a free to play game?
In Fable Legends, whether you’re adventuring as a Hero or smiting as a Villain, you will earn Silver to spend in-game. And everything that affects makes your characters or your creatures more powerful can be bought with the silver that you earn.
You’ll also be able to buy gold with real-world money, which can then be used to purchase many of the items that are also available for Silver.
Despite the in-game purchases, you’ll be able to play Fable Legends from beginning-to-end without spending a penny. That means you’ll have access to the entirety of Fable Legends’ storyline and all of the quests we release this year and forever. And everything in Fable Legends that affects gameplay can be earned by simply playing the game.
They will be updating the game with exciting new quests to play through, Heroes to play as, Villain creatures to control, and lots more. Read more about it here.
