"Fable Legends Might Just be Season One," says Lionhead

Upcoming Xbox One exclusive Fable Legends will evolve over the course of years, Lionhead hopes, with episodic content taking the story forward.
That’s according to game director David Eckelberry, who has clarified a little how multiplayer will not impinge on the game’s narrative.
“The storyline is absolutely there and very important,” Eckelberry told IGN. “Of course there’s a higher purpose with a broad storyline that combines the various quests. But we tell new stories all the time. That’s the beauty of episodic content.
“We don’t want Fable Legends to stop when you finish the game. You should think about seasons and episodes. Fable Legends might just be Season One and we can add new quests and stories in the future, in the form of DLC for example.”
We’re still a little muddy about precisely how Fable Legends will work, beyond this new info and Lionhead boss John Needham’s assertion that "It's not an MMO. It’s an online game that combines the classic Fable gameplay that we love with the online capabilities and graphical power of the Xbox One."
Whatever shape and form it takes, Fable Legends clearly has its own ideas. You can read more about the game in our preview.
