Major Nelson just confirmed on his blog that Fable would be getting a HD Anniversary Edition release for the 360. It will include The Lost Chapters, new achievements, leaderboards, new UI, SmartGlass integration, and an HD 1080p update.
The visual update includes new lighting render using the Unreal 3 engine, new face animations, upated textures, models, particle effects, new cutscene animations, a new save system, and more.
Lead desinger, Ted Timmins, had this to say about the new release, achievements, and 360 release:
"The game that Fable fans have been demanding for years.
Fable has always been about choice and consequence, so we're trying to put that into our Achievements.
Obviously the Xbox  isn't going anywhere anytime soon. It's very important, to all of us, that we carry on delivering on it."
Fable Anniversary will be out this holiday, excusively on the XBox 360.
Hopefully this is just the start and not the only reason for the opening of the new Fable forums, as Fable IV is expected for E3.

Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.
