Fable Heroes is a hack-and-slash game where up to four players battle their way through levels inspired by games in the Fable series. Players controls familiar characters such as Reaver, Jack of Blades, Sir Walter and many more. Gold coins are earned by defeating creatures. These can be spent on a board game-like leveling up system and gold can also be transferred to the later-released Fable: The Journey. In the levels players also discover chests that provide temporary abilities and disguises. Next to the main game mode there are mini-games inspired by sequences in the series.
