New Fable artwork (arrrrrrrr!)

Microsoft sent out some new Fable 2 concept art today. You can't tell from this environment sketch, but the characters lead us to believe that Fable 2 will have a very heavy piratical element (and possibly gypsies). The characters practically swing out of the picture (on a chandelier, natch) yelling obscenities and obscure nautical terms. Sure, we haven't seen any actual screenshots yet, but we love the darker, grittier feel than the original. We also relish the idea of sailing the seas and visiting new continents. Hopefully, we'll hear more on the game's development soon. Check out the scurvy ridden character art after the break.

To the one on the left, "Arrrrrr!" To the one on the right, "Rawr!"

"Remember kids, smoking is not cool."

Do these pique your interest more than the first game?

1. Forget the pix...where's the game? This will be a phenomenal game granted the first one was pretty good. Now, upgraded graphics, storyline, the works...I'm all in.

2. More art? Ugh.

I want to see the game! Even just a teeeeeny snippet or something.

I like the style so far, judging by those art pics, but I hpe thats just a certain area of the game and it's not all pirate/gypsy stuff. Either way, I sure hope you can be a pirate. =D How awesome would that be.

4. What's with the pirate theme for Fable 2? This sucks, who wants to play as a pirate in an RPG? Bring back the classic stuff from Fable 1 and just improve upon it. Don't mess with a good thing!

5. can't say I'm entirely excited by those images. I'm a huge fan of the original so I guess I like my Fable a certain way. Time well tell though.

Good to see Molyneux is keeping his mouth shut this time!

6. Hmm, i don't agree with the comments made. And i believe these pictures came out a while ago, perhaps *Microsoft* has only just released them, but i have seen these before.
From these concept arts i don't think you can be lead to believe that the game will have a very heavy piratical element, it could just be one character in the game, and that's it. And it may just be me, but the pics don't yell 'pirate' at me...

7. Does that mean we can carry gypsy tears in our equipment pack to ward off disease? I keed I keed.

8. @DannyOB: Those are definitely pirates. Check the hilts, boots, belts, vests, pouch-o-gold, gun and cannon ball. Plus they're all dirty.

The teaser from the last fable 2 post has gypsies and pirates in it, as well.

9. Whoa, that gypsy is a little NSFW, don't ya think?

10. Article title should have been "New Fable ARRRRRRRTWORK"
