Microsoft had a few surprises during its Gamescom 2013 press conference this morning, including the return of the Fable franchise.

First hinted at through domain leaks a few weeks ago, Fable Legends was officially confirmed today. Although details are scarce, it appears you'll once again be able to choose your role – hero or villain – and journey on a quest where your decisions are key. The game will also have some form of online component that makes use of Xbox Live.

Fable Legends is set to arrive in 2014. You can watch a brief CG trailer for it below.
