Set five years after the events of Fable III, the player controls a normal Dweller named Gabriel who has been separated from his tribe. Gabriel comes across Theresa, who has been wounded by a disease called The Corruption. The Corruption is taking over the whole of Albion, and Gabriel must take her to the Tattered Spire to restore her power. The game takes place throughout large portions of Albion. The events of Fable III are still felt during Fable: the Journey. According to developers, Fable: The Journey will read previous Fable III save files and change the game world accordingly. Details about loading these saves remains unclear. Player decisions will also affect the character's horse who drives the player's carriage throughout the game. If you spur your horse forward quickly with a whip, the horse's health may deteriorate. Alternatively, if you treat your horse well, they may exhibit a healthy glow. According to information revealed at E3 2012, the horse may even learn specific voice commands used when you spur it forward. It has been confirmed that this entry in the franchise does not deal with the ancient archon bloodline featured in past entries.
By using the Kinect the player can manipulate their hands to perform certain gestures, players can enter a spell crafting mode, which allows to draw items with their hands and then use them as spells. This enables players to create shields, spears and hammers in order to defeat enemies. Players can also create fishing rods and telescopes, which can then be used in minigames. As enemies are defeated, life force is collected, which can be used to unlock new spells. Life force is similar to the experience system of previous Fable titles.
A large portion of the game takes place with the player character's horse. Driving the horse requires "holding" the reins and guiding the horse along a path. The player must also care for their horse by petting and brushing it as well as caring for it when it gets hurt.
There will also be cross-game interaction with Fable Heroes, See Fable Heroes HERE. Playing Fable Heroes will level up the character in Fable: The Journey as well as unlock additional items.
