Congrats to Lionhead for Your 1 Year Anniversary of Fable Heroes

Posted in Avatar Related News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2013 by Sean Korb

On May 2nd 2012, we released our beloved little videogame, Fable Heroes, as part of the “Arcade Next” promotion for XBLA – (can you believe we were alongside Trials Evolution and Minecraft?!)

Made by a small team in just a few months, Fable Heroes came out of out Lionhead’s very first Creative Day in 2011. Our Creative Day’s give the entire studio the opportunity to stop work on our other games and head off to our local cinema to watch the wonders that everyone has created. Our 2012 Creative Day had some really exciting projects too; so perhaps we’ll be seeing more on those in the future :-)

Fable Heroes is our little game with the big heart and a game that we had a lot of fun making, so why shouldn’t the fun continue!

Keep an eye on our Twitter today for give-away codes with #HeroesBirthday. Some of our friends at Play XBLA and The Dead Hamster will be joining in the fun too – so make sure you give them a follow. There will also be a few of the team here at Lionhead online tonight having a play, and don’t forget that playing with a dev earns you a Lionhead Studios gamerpic.
We at XAG were honored enough to receive a bunch of codes for the fans so without further a due here are some CODES!

Special Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Pre-order Bonuses

Pre-order Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary to Unlock Your Inner Master Chief
and Pay Tribute to the Lovable Grunt

Join 343 Industries for a special Comic-Con Halo Universe panel on July 22

Ten years ago, Halo: Combat Evolved launched around the world and defined both the shooter genre and a generation of gamers. Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries are celebrating this epic milestone with the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary for Xbox 360 on Nov. 15 and inviting fans to join the landmark celebration with a set of special pre-order bonuses:

  • Master Chief Avatar Armor– Heroes Never Die, and to honor the 10th anniversary of John 117, you will finally be able to transform your Xbox LIVE Avatar into the iconic hero by outfitting it with Master Chief’s signature MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor.
  • “Grunt Funeral” Skull – An exclusive, game-modifying skull that changes the rules of the game for an explosively humorous experience, “Grunt Funeral” sends Halo’s most lowly and lovable enemy out in a blaze of glory. And plasma. And then more glory. Once the skull has been activated, every Grunt’s methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed. Watch out for the Grunt chain reaction!

Additionally, be sure to check out the latest Halo: Anniversary behind-the-scenes feature on Halo Waypoint and for in-depth developer commentary on the creative process behind developing one of the year’s most highly anticipated games.
