New Fable scraps for Thanksgiving

The latest Fable 2 community update went live on Friday -- factoring in the international time change, that's technically next Tuesday -- and we're left with ... not much. Unfortunately, we still have virtually no gameplay details to give you. What we do have is this lovely drawing of a street corner. There are a few tiny details to give. The first of which is that the game looks "stunning." According to the update, the game is leaps and bounds ahead of the teaser trailer that was released at E3. Also, Fable 2 will feature new vertical elements that were absent from Fable. For example, water levels could rise, giving you access to higher areas, or you can jump down a hole to enter a subterranean dungeon. It's a simple idea, but it could add a lot to Fable 2's overall geography -- Fable was pretty flat when you think about it. The only other tidbit revealed is that development is proceeding on schedule, which doesn't help us if we don't have an actual release date with which to gauge Lionhead's progress. Still, this is the last community update this year, so we'll have to take what we can get.

The question is, with only the odd piece of artwork now and again to keep you going, are you still excited for Fable 2?

I'm very excited about Fable 2. Fable was excellent and now since Lionhead has been brought my Microsoft I expect Fable 2 to be alot better.

Let's not forget Fable 1 was great fun to play, so it makes sense that Fable 2 will be or should be alot better since Lionhead only have to worry about developing 2 360 games(Fable 2 and BC) instead of 4.

The end result will hopeful be an amazing AAA action RPG which gamers will rejoice in and enjoy playing time and time again.

5. I am not sure if anyone picked up on the fact that the update states the game looks better than the teaser trailer. OMG, have you seen the teaser trailer!

Now I am very much looking forward to this game, more so than ever.

7. I'll decide if I'm excited or not when I get actual information on the GAME. Seeing art of the world that the game exists in is of little interest to me if the game itself doesn't deal with the original's key flaws. I'm a bit optimistic about its chances of being a pretty good game, but I'm not going with the hype like last time, that tends to lead to dissapointment.

8. I think that anyone that cares about Fable 2 should stave off all knowledge of it until it gets released, that way, we won't be disappointed by any of the promises that Mr. Molyneux inevitably breaks.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy his vision of gaming, it's just that he's too over eager to share it.

9. @ 360 tag: JJS UK

is BC coming out for 360? i just remember it got canceled for the original box. hmm, that'll be nice.

&i'm assuming it's not an acronym for backwards compatability, rite???

10. I really hope Fable 2 manages to build up some more hype. Being a Legend of Zelda fan, I loved Fable, with it's Zelda meets Harry Potter sort of theme. I think that the whole British colonial/pirate theme in Fable 2 could well make it stand out.
