During a press conference at a pre-Gamescom event in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft announced a new Fable game from the team at Lionhead Studios.

The trailer for the new game showcases a few character classes, but nothing that fans of the series, or games in general, aren't already familiar with. It looks like there will be a fighter class, a mage class, a ranged class, and so on. Although the trailer was all prerendered, it seemed to highlight online multiplayer where different classes would be watching each other's backs. Microsoft also promised smart glass functionality. We'll be getting a demo of the game later today, so stay tuned for more details shortly.
