Return to Albion, the world of the Fable game series, with Fable Fortune you will be drawn back into this great universe but this game is quite different from the other Fable games. It is a Digital Collectible Card Game.
One important thing to note is that although this game shows as launched on 25 July, it is still in development hence me saying this is a Pre/Review. I enjoy digital card games, it is something you can play anywhere or anytime, depending on the platform the game is available on.
Because the game is still in development there isn’t much of a Tutorial but they made an Awesome how to guide which you can see here. If you are used to card games then you should be able to find your feet quite easily. Basically, there are two card types: Unit Cards and Spell Cards and they are self-explanatory.
There are six Heroes to choose from and each with their own uniqueness, you can see more detail about them here. You can start with the basic decks and then as you collect more cards you can start to build your own deck, each deck can only contain 30 cards. Some cards can only be used by certain Heroes, deck cannot contain more than 2 copies of any cards of Mythic rarity or lower and cannot contain more than 1 copy of any cards of Fabled rarity. If you feel you have the grips of the game you can go read up on the advanced tips guide here.
The graphics are very cool and you can see the theme of Albion come to life during matches and even with the cards and Heroes. The audio and music also ties in greatly to the game and it takes you back to your adventures in Albion.
I do not have a favourite Hero yet but I’m leaning towards Crimson and Temple so far. Crimson is a shapeshifter that makes you think of a Grimm Fairy-tale Red Riding Hood and Temple is a Necromancer that looks like a “don’t care attitude” teenager. I’m quite keen on Miracle as well with her Alchemy but there will have to be a lot more playing for me to really make my mind up.
I’m eager to see how they keep improving the game and can’t wait to play it further. The only thing I wish for is a mobile version so I can play it anywhere ;p
