Xbox Series X Fan Art Illustrates a Charming Fable Design
Xbox Pope is at it again and this time we are in for a treat with this beautiful Fable design.
After years of waiting and countless rumors, Fable finally made an appearance at the Xbox Games Showcase a few weeks ago. Even though the trailer was pretty short, it gave fans of the 2004 role-playing game a glimpse of what was to come for the franchise. Granted, it seems that the game isn’t anywhere close for release yet as developer Playground is still hiring folk for positions regarding the title but still, it’s something to look forward to and watch come together. Until then, we have some talented artists who can tie us over with some amazing Fable concept art, and this time instead of on paper, XboxPope comes in with a luscious design crafted on the upcoming Xbox Series X.
If you’re into incredible console concept art then you probably have already heard of XboxPope. Pope’s imagination has no limits when it comes to creating a one of a kind console and allows his creative talents to run wild. You may have seen his previous concept pieces that include an incredible PlayStation 4 Ghost of Tsushima inspired concept art console while scrolling through his Instagram account, which is mostly consisting of Xbox One consoles. Sieving through the site you’ll also come across the likes of a Gears 5 controller as well as a Cyberpunk 2077 and Halo Infinite and even a Spongebob and Peppa Pig console kit. He really is extremely talented in his designs and I’m fairly sure there isn’t much he can’t come up with.
However, Pope’s Fable design on the Xbox Series X emits a more subtle and charming concept rather than his more outlandish and bold pieces. I particularly love how well he has incorporated the nature side of the title, surrounding the console in lush trees, mushrooms, and what looks to be a small stream. The colors used work so well in creating an ambiance and serenity that’s mixed in beautifully with the gold lettering. Even though I have no desire to purchase the Xbox Series X, if this specific console was up for sale I think I could very easily be swayed but unfortunately, it’s only for artistic purposes.
As I’m sure you’re aware by now, Microsoft has (at last) officially confirmed that the Xbox Series X will be making it’s way into the world in November 2020, narrowing its initial launch window from holiday 2020. So far, no specific details have been released nor has the date for launch been pinned down and either has the price but what we do know is that Halo Infinite – the Xbox Series X’s launch title, has been delayed into 2021 to allow for additional development time and polish on the long-anticipated title. This is, of course, terrible news for fans of the franchise but with 2020 being a straight-up dumpster fire, it’s probably best all around. What fans can look forward to though is that Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and will support 120FPS on Xbox Series X. So, it’s not all bad news?
Regarding Fable, we initially heard rumors that the title will be an MMO, unlike its predecessors but reliable Xbox insiders spoke up saying that this information was false. Jez Cordon, one of the senior writers at Windows Central, and Klobrille, a well-known Xbox insider on Twitter and ResetEra, both have already confirmed that Fable will be an action RPG fame with some limited online elements for co-operative gameplay, without any MMO features. Fable isn’t playing around either when it comes to its development. A few weeks ago we learned that Playground Games has hired numerous veterans from other studios who have been confirmed to be working on the title. These studios being Rocksteady, Ninja Theory, Gearbox, and Bioware.
Little is known about Fable so far outside the teaser, but it is coming to PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Keep an eye on DualShockers for more information about the game as it becomes available.
