The highly anticipated trailer for the upcoming Fable game was finally released at the recent Xbox Game Show, and it revealed a surprising new addition to the cast. The beloved British actor and comedian Richard Ayoade voiced the role of a giant who's really into vegetables. He added a pleasant touch of humor and charm to an already captivating world.

About the Actor

Richard Ayoade is known for many of his works, but the iconic role in his career is that of an awkward IT technician Maurice Moss in the television show The IT Crowd. He also lent his voice to films and shows like The Lego Movie, The Mandalorian, and The Bad Guys.

Ayoade brings a wealth of talent and comedic timing to the character of the giant. His presence adds an unexpected layer of humor and personality to the game, which ensures that players will be entertained as they navigate through Fable's rich and diverse world.

About the Game

The Fable video game series is known for its captivating and whimsical storytelling and has long been a favorite among gamers. The franchise's latest installment is a reboot of the series and is being developed by Playground Games. The studio has only previously worked on Forza Horizon titles — open-world racing video games. This worries some fans as making a full-fledged role-playing game without any experience in the genre is a tall order.

The studio is also utilizing its in-house engine ForzaTech for the game, an engine that has only been used for racing games. How well the engine translates to an RPG will be known after launch.

As the series is owned by Microsoft, PlayStation fans will be sitting this one out. Fable will only launch on Xbox Series X|S and PC. A release date or window hasn't been provided yet, but given that the recent trailer omitted such info, we believe that the game is quite far away.
