Two of the biggest RPGs coming to the Xbox in 2004 were once scheduled to be in the hands of gamers before the current year was out. While some may be dismayed that they will have to wait at least 5 months to play either of these titles, more development time should only ensure better final products of Big Blue Box's widely-hyped Fable and Level-5's MMORPGTrue Fantasy Live Online.
There's not much that can be said here regarding the former that isn't already available in our preview of the title. For those familiar with the title, we've updated with over 64 new screen shots of Fable, bringing the total to 127 screens.
Level-5's MMORPG will begin beta testing next spring in Japan. Meanwhile, take a look at (once again) 64 new screens of True Fantasy Live Online, which takes a decidedly more light-hearted approach to the genre than most do. The new screen shots show off characters roaming the countryside, interacting with each other and fighting a really really big, ugly turtle beast...thing.
While both titles are due in 2004, no firm release dates are set for either one.
