Looks nice. I'm actually optimistic for a multiplayer focused Fable without Molyneux at the helm.

.... *sigh*
Screenshots seem like a silly way to show off DYNAMIC GI. This looks nice, but none of this shows it being dynamic.

Absolutely true, the marketing people are making fools of them selves yet again.

Edit: scratch that, the post on the Lionhead blog that is linked was written by a graphics programmers, and it at least shows comparison screenshots between non-GI / GI scenes. Still, the dynamic aspect is not shown at all.

I can only agree with this. I was never fond of Molyneux' overpromising and under delivering. So far Lionhead is taking it easy with the promises. This could turn out nicely, and hopefully a decent combat system too.

I must admit. This is beautiful. Love the lighting.

This game looks like the like a last generation title much like the first 360 fable did when it debuted.

Maybe you should read the source :P

Yeah, well see the secondary bounces don't seem to pick up much color. All this supposed GI seems to do, in these screens at least, is make some of the shadows a wee bit lighter. It shows by far clearer in some of the "programmer art" shots posted on the blog.
Commented on 2014-04-22 20:00:29
Although this is true next gen lighting techniques being used here, they are obviously exaggerated for "artistic" reasons. These kinds of indirect lighting solutions will make a huge difference to games, but they won't be the most accurate representations of how light actually works. GI is entirely material sensitive in how it's supposed to work and react. The first screenshot with the orange hue coming from the sun hitting the sand and bleeding onto the walls is far too exaggerated. If the ground were a opaque or diffuse smooth or reflective surface, then it would be accurate. I hope developers don't go overboard with it just because they can.
