At E3 this year, Microsoft showed off "Fable Legends" for Xbox One, a new take on the RPG franchise's well-loved world of magic, humor and high adventure.  Fable Legends' stunning visuals were created using Unreal Engine 4, so, we asked our friends at Lionhead if they'd do a bit of experimentation with us.

    Minecraft and Crytek had an ugly child. Crysis 3.0 looks better and it is only DX11

    Bitrate complainer

    Could you please increase the bitrate of the web video? All details are lost because of blurry compression and there is too much grey overlay on the video.

    The bitrate/quality on this video is a joke.
    How are you supposed to show off a graphics showcase/api demo, if it's literally impossible to see anything through a blurry, low-res, pixelated haze?

    I want to see this video with normal quality.
    Your "High Quality MP4" worse than youtube 360p quality.
    Why did you use such a bad video codec or put low quality settings when encoding video?
