Fable II Goes Episodic, Pay-To-Play

In addition to announcing Fable III, Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has also revealed that Fable II is to be re-released as an episodic, pay-per-episode title.

It'll launch on September 29, with the game broken up into five chapters. The first chapter will be free, and when you get to the end of it, you'll be given the option to pay to download the next chapter.

Molyneux says each chapter has a "natural break", so you won't get any sudden interruptions in your experience. No word on pricing as of yet, but we do know it'll be compatible with Fable II's DLC, Knothole Island and See the Future.


    Cool, I actually just borrowed fable 2 from a friend and played it through, but would be more than happy to purchase it again, it's a great game.

    For some reason I never got Fable 2 when it came out (probably because I heard it was buggy as hell), and have never seen it cheap one sale... (I don't think I've seen it at all, actually!)

      Really? I never encountered a major bug. I encountered one but admittedly it did annoy me to hell. My wife mysteriously dissapeared even though the game reckoned she was in my house. Aside from that I didn't have any issues. None of my friends had any other problems either.

        I encountered a bug which rendered a property or two in Bowerstone unpurchasable.

        I'd consider that somewhat major; I deleted that character and started again.

    That's interesting. I wonder if there'll be extra content on this episodic chapter, compared to the previously-released complete game.
