Fable Fortune card game will kick off into closed beta next week

If you've been eager to get your hands on Fable Fortune, the time has almost arrived — if you're lucky. The card game based on the popular Fable franchise will officially kick off its closed beta test starting next week.

If you're unfamiliar with Fable Fortune, the game takes the big themes of the Fable universe and translates them into what looks to be a solid card game. And yes, that includes the series' famous good and evil alignment system, which will determine the powers you're able to use.

According to developer Flaming Fowl Studios, the closed beta will only run on an invite-only basis through the Steam platform on Windows for now. That said, both Early Access and Xbox Game Preview versions are due to launch sometime in the second quarter of 2017 as a "Founder's Pack" that will include some bonus card packs and an exclusive card.

If you want to try your hand at jumping into the closed beta, you can register for an invite throughout its duration. Invites will be sent out in waves over the next several weeks, gradually expanding to include more players over time. Perhaps the best part is that each invite will contain 3 keys, so you can jump in with two of your friends.
