Any â€œFable IIâ€ fan can share experiences of their life in the rich world of Albion, and wild stories about glory or mischief theyâ€™ve gotten into as consequences of their choices in the game. For everyone missing out, Microsoft now presents a completely new way to experience â€œFable IIâ€ through the power of Xbox LIVE and Games on Demand: â€œFable II: Game Episodes.â€
Debuting today on Xbox LIVE*, â€œFable II: Game Episodesâ€ gives players the choice to purchase and download â€œFable IIâ€ one episode at a time. This marks the first time in Xbox history that a major blockbuster title will be distributed not only digitally, but episodically as well. â€œFable II: Game Episodesâ€ delivers the entire â€œFable IIâ€ experience in five consecutive installments, with all the Achievements, challenges and excitement of the disc-based game, as well as full compatibility with the previously released Game Add-ons, â€œKnothole Islandâ€ and â€œSee the Future.â€
As an incentive for those curious about the adventures that await them in â€œFable II,â€ Microsoft Game Studios is making the first episode free to download. In this initial episode, players are introduced to the vibrant world of Albion where every choice has a consequence, and are able to experience childhood and the trials of being a young adult. Players can then choose to purchase additional episodes on Xbox LIVE at their own pace.
Players who decide to purchase â€œFable IIâ€ either digitally or on disc after a foray into the first game episode will find their saved progress, character profile, and items from the first episode will be transferred seamlessly as they continue their journey. All editions of the game offer cooperative play with friends on the same couch as well as on Xbox LIVE.**
