Fable Legends will be free-to-play on the Xbox One, Lionhead Studios has announced.
In a blog post on the studio’s website, the developer said: Our goal is to ensure the game we’re working to create is available to as many players as possible.
“The first step to make that happen came when we announced this year that Fable Legends will be cross-playable on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
“Today we’re announcing the next huge piece of news that’ll help us reach this goal. Fable Legends will be free to play.”
The post continued: “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.
“Everything in Fable Legends that affects gameplay can be earned by simply playing the game.”
Microsoft confirmed that an Xbox Live Gold membership would be required to play Fable Legends on the Xbox One.
Fable Legends is scheduled for a release later this year.
