Lionhead dropped a veritable bomb today, announcing the release date for Fable 2
along with its XBLA Pub Games
. On top of that, we now know the entire contents of the Limited Collectors Edition. Fable 2
will hit US shelves on October 21 and will land in Europe on Oct 24. The Fable 2 Pub Games
will arrive on Xbox Live Arcade on Aug 13. Pub Games
will be available for free to those who pre-order Fable 2
"at participating retailers", while those who haven't can snag them for 800 Microsoft Points. We're not sure which retailers are participating, but we imagine we'll find out soon enough.
The Limited Collector's Edition of Fable 2
will retail for $79.99 and will include:
- Bonus DVD
- Bonus in-game content
- 5 printed "Fate Cards"
- 48-hour Xbox LIVE trial card
- Collectible Hobbe Qee figurine (you remember Qees, don't you?).
The bonus DVD includes a "Making-of Feature" and a concept art viewer. The in-game content includes "'The Hall of the Dead' Dungeon, 'The Wreckager' Legendary Cutlass Weapon and Otherworldly Bonus." We're not exactly sure what Fate Cards are (like Tarot cards maybe?) but all in all the Collector's Edition sounds very hefty indeed. Now everyone has just over two months to start saving for it.
