A bit of surprising news revealed today is that Fable Legends will in fact be a free to play game. In a style similiar to League of Legends, four heroes will be made available free to play at launch. At a specific time, the four initial characters will be swapped for four new ones to play freely. Should you want to buy a character, you may do so by paying silver (currency earned in-game) or with gold (purchased with real money). Progress earned with any hero or villain will be saved, so no need to worry about losing progress when your character is rotated out of the free selection. While not an entirely original idea, this should be an interesting direction for not only this game but the Fable franchise.
It has been speculated for a while now but Mortal Kombat X will indeed have Brutalities. Gone are the insane combos you must imput in order to see a character explode into 50 rib cages. Brutalities now seem like mini fatalities, which seem to be triggered by doing certain actions during matches or ending them with certain moves. Some Brutalities look simple, such as a head getting knocked off, while others can be brutal. Above is the video containing the live stream NetherRealm Studios presented today.
