Fableborne is an isometric play-to-own multiplayer game where you embark on a journey to explore the Shatterlands.
As an isometric free-to-play and play-to-own multiplayer game, Fableborne combines Action RPG and Base Building with unique twists, redefining accessibility for mobile games and challenging what competition in short snackable sessions means. Throughout the rich story and venture into the Shatterlands, a realm torn apart by a mysterious event that tore the world apart, you are challenged to compete against other players for gold and glory.
There is an incredible amount of beauty and danger in The Shatterlands. The Esperwood, a gigantic ethereal tree born from the cataclysmic end of an era, floats in the middle of a multitude of suspended islands. The Esperwood is a deified entity with terrifying power and arcane purpose. As the Fableborne, players can unlock and upgrade powerful Heroes to use in asynchronous player-versus-player battles against other players' islands, or to hone their skills in player-versus-environment boss battles. The game is free-to-play, with the option to purchase additional content.
To protect the world from the various dangers that threaten it, four powerful Factions were formed. Each Faction adopted its own set of principles and beliefs, and used them to build strong states and countries that governed many islands. However, some members of these Factions became too ambitious and put their desire for knowledge and power above the safety of the realm.
In Fableborne, players can control Echoes of the fabled heroes of the Shatterlands during Raids. These Echoes are fragmented copies of the original Heroes, and can be collected and upgraded by players. Each Echo is unique and can be customized through the player's choices, skill, and investment of time and resources.
Fableborne players can empower their Echoes in various ways, and the tactical use of the right Echo with the right combination of Talents will be crucial for victory. The Echoes are NFT characters that are part of a collection that can be upgraded in a rogue-lite system, allowing for almost limitless customization. Since Echoes are incomplete copies of fabled Heroes, each Echo is unique and can have different Attributes and Talents.
In addition to Echo's Basic Attack, which can be used continuously, the player can unlock one Special Ability and one Ultimate Ability for their individual Echo, both of which have a cooldown and need to be used wisely. When Echoes are upgraded, players unlock Talents, which are passive traits that enhance the Echoes' Attributes, such as Hit Points or Movement Speed, or give them direct upgrades, such as increasing Attack Speed, Critical Damage, or Duration of Status Effects.
Fableborne's Kiara Ultimate Ability
Every Echo has a pre-generated list of Talents, but the order of these Talents is randomized. Players must choose the right Talents to build an Echo that fits their playstyle. There are different types of Talents: some unlock active Abilities, some modify and increase the effectiveness of active Abilities, and others provide incremental Attribute increases. Talents come in different Levels and Rarities.
When a player obtains the same Talent again, it will level up and increase in power. Each Talent also comes in multiple Rarities, with higher Rarities providing greater power boosts. If a player obtains the same Talent in a higher Rarity, all previously selected Talents of that kind will automatically be adjusted to the highest Rarity.
When players enter the game, they become Fableborne, a mysterious being exploring the broken realm of the Shatterlands, which was created by a cataclysmic event. New players start with a starting island floating in the sky and an Echo of common rarity. They must explore the Twisting Aether, upgrade their Echoes, and discover new islands. These islands can be either empty or occupied by other players or NPCs.
Players must raid both types of occupied islands to progress in Fableborne. When they challenge other players in player-versus-player battles, they must attack their opponent's base, counter defensive structures, evade traps, and face off against monsters. One important structure in each floating base is the Heart of the Island, which represents the island's life.
Players can raid other players' islands and reap their resources once the island's defenses are weakened. This helps to improve their overall ranking in the game. If they choose to raid an NPC island, they can participate in a player-versus-environment adventure that consists of multiple stages of increasing difficulty, ending in a boss battle. Players can earn various rewards by completing these PvE challenges, including resources and new Echoes.
Fableborne is currently still in development, but Pixion has recently conducted their first pre-alpha stage, letting players get their first hands-on experience with the game. However, there hasn't been any announced timeline or future playtesting stages scheduled. Once there is, we will make sure to update you as well so stay tuned on our socials and our News section.
