Combination of Xbox One and Unreal Engine 4 is Very Potent According to Lionhead Studios – Fable Legends Looks Beautiful

Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 4 is currently one of the most praised and preferred video game development engines in the market. The number of major triple A titles that use Unreal Engine 4 is not significantly big right now, but looking at what is going on in the industry, it seems like it won’t be long before Unreal Engine 4 starts powering next-gen video game titles that are yet to come. Developers are already giving it out for Epic’s engine, and according to Lionhead Studios, Xbox One and Unreal Engine 4 combination is very potent.

Fable Legends is one of the upcoming major Xbox One exclusive titles that are currently being developed using Unreal Engine 4. Being created by Microsoft’s Lionhead Studios, Fable Legends is a cooperative role-playing game. Lionhead Studios has not announced a specific release date for the upcoming game but talking to GamingBolt, Geoff Smith, executive producer from Lionhead Studios, explained how they are pushing the game using the potential of Xbox One and Unreal Engine 4.

“There are a couple of things really. There is the seamless sort of multiplayer backed by Xbox Live and the drop in/drop out gameplay that we’re able to do, I will talk briefly about that and I’ll talk about the second point in a minute about Xbox One. You can play single-player as well and the other heroes will be controlled and you can play against an AI villain if you like to. Xbox One just enables us to move very easilybetween those kinds of modes.”

 

Smith also explained how the Xbox One and Unreal Engine 4 combine together to offer great things and how Epic’s Engine will make Fable Legends look charms after the full development is complete.

“The other things of course, it makes the game rather look beautiful. We’re working very closely with Epic because we’re using Unreal Engine 4 and the combination of Xbox One and UE4 is very potent. I think, certainly we’re very pleased with the way it’s looking and it’s gonna look better because Unreal Engine 4 is yet to be completed. It’s gonna look better, later in Fall it’s going to be given another overhaul, it’s going be great.”
