The legendary Fable. Completely remastered. What’s not to love.
Fable is an RPG for pretty Xbox, PC and Mac.

We’re really please to see it come to Xbox Games with Gold! And we hope you’ll enjoy reminiscing about this absolute classic. The classic phrase is thrown about far to often in the gaming world but with Fable it’s fully warranted.
