Fable Heroes, a spin-off title from the multi-million selling Fable franchise, has been revealed via Xbox.com.

The game sees up to four players team up in a hack and slash adventure, working together as heroes of Albion to defeat familiar foes and new enemies. You'll also need to collect as many gold coins as possible to unlock upgrades, characters and items in both Heroes and Fable: The Journey.

A competitive element is also mentioned on Xbox.com, but isn't made clear if this means competing for gold coins or some kind of versus mode.

No release date was mentioned on Xbox.com, but we assume it will be before the launch of Fable: The Journey rumoured for September 4.

Martin's been out in San Francisco checking out all things Microsoft so check back soon for more on Microsoft's 2012 line-up.
