Linohead Studio announced today it will be releasing the first premium downloadable content for Fable 2 in mid-December 2008. This is expected to be the first in a long line of downloadable content for the hit Fable 2. With so much extra content already available, such as the free equipment that can be obtained from the www.Fable2.com website (more info on how to get this rare equipment can be found HERE, or HERE if you live outside of the US or UK)
The premise behind the new Fable 2 downloadable content is that hundreds of years ago, the inhabitants of Knothole Glade found an island off of the mainland. It is rumored that the residents of this island, dubbed Knothole Island, have complete control over the weather. The village elders of Knothole Glade decided that it would be best for their people to relocate to Knothole Island to settle. This would not only offer them safety from many wild animals, but also offer them the luxury of pleasant weather.
The Knothole Island downloadable content for Fable 2 will include more than just extra game content. In addition to the new locales and quests available, players who download the Knothole content will also be rewarded with gifts. These will include the Knight’s Boots, Assassin’s Gloves, a weight loss potion, the Silver Book, and more.
In addition to all of this new content, a new Fable 2 theme designed specifically for The New Xbox Experience (to learn more about The New Xbox Experience, click HERE.) available in the Xbox Live Marketplace for 250 Microsoft Points. While I think that is quite high for what is essentially a Fable 2 advertisement, it might be exactly what you hard-core fans are looking for.
At any rate, seeing some new content for Fable 2 this soon after its release is a very welcomed development. We can only hope that Lionhead Studios keeps up their momentum on this blockbuster game, making it a titled that we will be playing for a LONG time.
