FDJv: Fable 2's Bowerstone Fly-by

FDJv: Fable 2's Bowerstone Fly-by

We've been able during Fable 2's public presentation at the Festival du Jeu Video to record this fly-by video of the first city of the game, Bowerstone, done using the debug camera of the game. It's a great way to check out the great work done with the game's art design and its 3d modeling.
Update: Video removed at Microsoft's request.

loved the last bit: the bridge over the water vista, with the moon in the sky and a bird passing by over it.

Beauty.

thanks for the vid

looks great, although the vid got a little boring after a while, and also, I would not watch the video if I wanted the game to feel a little more fresh, exploring the world looks to be one of the best parts

Oh wow. If ever a game was lovingly crafted it is this one. Beautiful and detailed.
Commented on 2008-09-28 01:08:21
i hope there are a lot more cities and towns like this to explore. it'd be pretty dissapointing if the only main city was just this small place. although from what i remeber of the first fable, there wasnt many towns in that game either.

Wow, surprised at how large and detail the city is.

Textures look a lot cleaner than I expected.

Pure Sex! cant wait to dive into this world :D

Wow! I LOVE the seamless translation between outdoors & indoors, and the visuals are great and have a nice feel.

The size and 'life' of the city looks better than I had even hoped.

This is one of my 'magnificent 8' (games I must buy)

What you mean is that you're disappointed this is a 360 game, if it were a PS3 game, you'd be hyping it to the heavens.

Definitely looking out for its reviews... I have never been interested in it from all of the videos and stuff, but this video is great, it does show that at least the game is solid. I've always known from Molyneux's games that they are paranoid... will this be any different, perhaps we'll wait and see.

I would appreciate it if it does things like GTA-IV does in sandbox genre: numerous and really deep... and not something like the way content and features in Saint's Row are done: more numerous than even GTA but extremely shallow...

Instead of doing so much, but nothing in it really standing out and making a gamer say, "Gosh! I need to have a 360, man"... this game must be doing so much with equal depth level. It should be crossing the level of what Fable 1 to xbox was. (Visuals are still sub-par but I'd shut-up till I get to see the final build)...

They are... paranoid?

I can't wait.. well, I'm not sure if I can wait. With Fallout 3 on the horizon, I'll likely play that first, and I am sort of hoping for a PC/Lost Chapters version of the game down the line. But regardless.. it's going to own.

like an open book. Some peoples the agendas, I mean.
Commented on 2008-09-28 15:49:30
This is probably the game I'm looking forward to most at the moment. I really enjoyed the first Fable, and if this is just bigger and more polished with a better story(not that I had any problem with the story from the first one), then there's no reason I shouldn't like this.

Visuals are still sub-par but I'd shut-up till I get to see the final build
I agree that some individual aspects aren't that great upon inspection, but the game as a whole looks fantastic to me, and the atmosphere seems pretty great.

fuck that, this game is the only game im super excited for on the 360 this year. i cant wait to get my hand on it...the limited edition no less, but that doesnt mean its magically exempt from critisism...IF the only town.city in the game is this one...then the game is going to feel incredibly small (just like the first) even if the areas surrounding the city are large...

with a few more added towns or cities however, it will feel a lot larger. thats all i'm saying, jeez. share your thoughts and your branded a fanboy? maybe we should only praise games...would that make you feel better?

Uhm is the town around this place free to explore or is it more like a background which you can’t enter?
