Microsoft's released new Fable: The Journey screenshots via, and seemingly confirmed a September 4 release date.


Following The Journey's E3 2011 showing, Molyneux famously called the on-stage demonstration "a horrendous mistake".

The Lionhead boss explained: "The reason it was on rails was because I told the team to take out navigation, because on stage I thought, right, I need to show off magic, how cool magic is.

"If Dimitri doing the demo had had to navigate from one position to another, one, it would have extended the demo to four minutes from two minutes, and two, it would be slightly confusing."
