A former member CD Projekt Red is responsible for the combat of Fable 4, PCGamesN recently learned. Fable combat was excellent for a game of its time, though it is outdated by today's standards. Combat in video games is supposed to be more realistic, which is where The Witcher excelled.
As a result of Pawel Kapala joining CD Projekt Red as a Gameplay Designer, Fable 4 will change for the better. I'm looking forward to seeing how that touch translates to the gunplay and magic mechanic of Fable. The addition of Pawel Kapala to the game is a significant improvement.

Fable 4 Combat Changes
Playground Games, the developer of Fable 4, made one of the best decisions for the game. Playground Games designer Pawel Kapala is responsible for the combat in Fable. According to Pawel's LinkedIn page, his role entails "designing and implementing combat for Fable."
The Witcher 3 was known for its sword-and-spells combat. Arguably, that combat had an excellent deal to do with it becoming such a loved bestseller. That is, next to the story, of course.
There's a mix of melee weapons in The Witcher, as well as a range of ranged spells, which can cause the time to distort, fire to hurl, and telekinetically shove enemies. Taking a look back at the spells found in Fable 2, for example, we see that Yrden, Igni, and Aard spells from The Witcher have a lot in common with Time Control, Inferno, and Force Push from Fable 2.
Having Pawel Kapala join Playground Games and Microsoft is an excellent decision, and we wish him all the best.
