Fable II Gets XBLA Pre-order Goody and Collector's Edition


Lionhead Studios and Microsoft will grant interested parties who pre-order Fable II free access to the Fable II Pub Games via the XBLA. This download will release in August along with the game and will cost everyone else 800 MS Points to download.

The Pub Games download includes three unique casino games that allow players to accumulate gold and then import those totals into the game of Fable II. That should give players a solid head start.

Additionally, a collector’s edition Fable II bundle was announced. The limited package will retail for $79.99 and include a making of video, Hobbe figure, and additional in-game content. The official cut to follow:

July 7, 2008 – Lionhead Studios and Microsoft Game Studios today announced that consumers who pre-order a copy of the Xbox 360™ exclusive, “Fable II,” at participating retailers worldwide, will be given free access to download the “Fable II” Pub Games when they are released this August. Available exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade, fans can transfer the gold earned in these casino-style mini-games to the world of “Fable II,” when the game is available later this year.

The final names of the Xbox LIVE Arcade “Fable II” Pub Games (which will be available as one download) are: “Keystone,” which is a combination of Craps and Roulette, “Spinnerbox,” which is an updated take on slot machines, and “Fortune’s Tower,” which is a press your luck style of game. The download will also include a Shell, which is a tutorial of all three games.

Now and for the first time ever, “Fable II” fans can get a head start on their virtual experience, starting their long awaited quest through this sequel with gold in the bank and the ability to purchase items right off the bat, such as weapons, clothing, houses, dog tricks and more – an experience that can only be found on Xbox LIVE Arcade. The “Fable II” Pub Games will also be available for purchase over Xbox LIVE in August for those that do not pre-order “Fable II” for 800MS points.

Lionhead and Microsoft Game Studios also announced details of a limited collector’s edition of “Fable II” available for pre-order at retailers worldwide, for a suggested price of $79.99 USD. The limited collector’s edition includes: a bonus disc with a new behind-the-scenes making of video, collectible Hobbe figure, a LIVE trial card and additional in-game content (an Xbox LIVE account is required to access the limited collector’s edition bonus in-game content). The “Fable II” standard addition is also available for pre-order at a suggested retail price of $59.99. “Keystone,” “Spinnerbox” and “Fortune’s Tower” will also be embedded as part of the full retail copy of “Fable II” (limited collector’s and standard editions).
