Fable Legends Allows Character Switching During Single-Player

By   /   Jul 11, 2014

Lionhead Studios has revealed that Fable Legends will allow players to switch between characters during the game.

The upcoming cooperative role-playing game set in the Fable universe features multiple heroes to choose from. A player can only select one per session. Game Director David Eckelberry revealed that players will still have the option of switching between the unoccupied heroes and the one they are currently playing as.

“You can [switch between characters] in single-player. We haven’t worked that tech in yet, but it’s not that hard to do. [You can switch between characters] as long as those characters are already in the quest. These are just the first four that we’re building, but there are going to be more than a dozen there for release.

“You are not going to be able to switch to characters that are not playing with you already. On the other hand, if your best friend is playing and he sees you’re online, he can drop in and blow up the AI you’re playing with as long as you okay it,” Eckelberry said.

That ultimately opens up various possibilities for players in-game. If perhaps the need be, they can simply switch to a character in trouble and help him/her roll through, after which they can switch back to their present one.

Fable Legends’ beta will kick off later this year and is scheduled for release exclusively for the Xbox One later this fall.
