Microsoft has used its Gamescom 2013 Xbox Media Briefing to announce a new chapter in the Fable franchise, Fable Legends.

Not much is known about the structure of the game yet, but the demo shown hints that multiple player types will be available and it has been teased that it will be based in an online, persistent game world. In addition, you will be able to play either a hero or a villain.

Previous Fable games have made use of the concept of good and evil, allowing the player to explore either path based on choices made throughout. Fable Legends will explore that concept further, allowing gamers to set their stalls more definitively.

Lionhead is giving gameplay demonstrations during Microsoft's event, so Pocket-lint will bring you more when we've had a walkthrough. Stay tuned.
