When asked about his interest in MMOs, Peter Molyneux gestured over to his PR wrangler saying that "there's someone in this room to make sure that I don't say too much about that question", but did confirm his interests in the genre saying that "I have been looking at MMOs". He continued, "I love the interaction, and I'm fascinated by the idea of really feeling secure and cool enough to actually do it." Just then, as juicy Lionhead MMO information was about to roll from his lips, Peter was silenced by his wrangler. If you ask us, a Lionhead developed MMO sounds delicious.
Microsoft is set to announce a 2 player online co-op mode for Fable 2 to go along with the drop-in drop-out offline co-op mode already announced at GDC 2008. The online mode seems to be the missing piece of details regarding the anticipated role-playing adventure. Expect to be able to play through the entire story with a friend when the game releases -- which is expected to be this fall.
Fable 2 from developer Lionhead Studios is the anticipated sequel to the popular 2004 role-playing game for the Xbox. Recently it was revealed the title would do away with a HUD and cutscenes to tell a more immersible story as well as the ability to create your own henchmen, to abide by your good or evil bidding.
[Update: We've got the details on how online co-op will function: In the game world you'll see purple floating spheres which represent the location of your friends in their own single player games. All you'll need to do is approach the orb, and you'll be able to bring your friend into your game. And this is available at any time, from the beginning of the game to the end]
Oh, and the game will be playable at E3 and, yes, we will be playing it.
