Talk of on-rails gameplay is the direct result of the demonstration which took place during Microsoft’s E3 media briefing at the start of the week. The gameplay sampler showed how it will be possible to take control of a horse by tugging at its reigns using Kinect, but did not show off any exploration. It’s a demo Molynuex now regrets.
I made an horrendous mistake on the press demo on taking out the navigation allowing players to move, he told OXM. I’ll state on record now that Fable: The Journey is definitely not on rails.
