Do you own a Kinect and are looking for more games to play and explore?  Lionhead Studios is working diligently on their latest big project, Fable: The Journey, which will be featured specifically on the peripheral.  Fable: The Journey will feature new, expanded territories in Albion, several new baddies and a gripping new story accessible to new and seasoned players alike.  

 

Launching October 9, Fable: The Journey tells the tale of a young man named Gabriel on a journey to change fate and become the hero he was always meant to be.  In his pursuit to destroy the corruption that plagues Albion, Gabriel will be guided forward by Theresa, the returning spark that will fuel his coming-of-age story.  While the story itself presents nothing new to the Fable series, the new motion controls do, and will hopefully add an extra sense of immersion in gameplay.  Pair that with the series' remarkable sense of humor and you've got yourself an intriguing combination. 

 

While Lionhead hasn't fully disclosed how the motion controls will exactly work, they did lovingly put together a short video documenting the game's story in "Telling the Tale".  This doc is short, but to the point, discussing the overall look and feel of the new game.  While motion control gaming isn't my gameplay of choice, Fable: The Journey looks to be an exciting new take in the Fable series. You can check out "Telling the Tale" below: 

 

 

 

And if you missed the E3 2012 trailer, you can check it out as well.  Just so you know, all the footage shown is in-game.  Not too shabby! 

 

 

 

If you're interested in checking out the game before release, Fable: The Journey will be available for demo via Xbox LIVE on September 17.  Stay tuned, the wait is almost over! You can also pre-order this game at Future Shop:
