Found 27th Sep 2009
Fable 2 is being released in 5 separate episodes and the first of which will be free coming this Tuesday 29th Sept on Xbox 360 Games on Demand.

Its a pretty fun game and received very good scores when it came out last year.

Two quick notes:

1. You will still have to buy the 2 DLC for fable separately, even if you buy all the episodes from Games on Demand.

There's a Game of the Year Edition which includes all DLC which again will work out cheaper than buying all the episodes + DLC. ]Link

2. If you enjoy the first episode i recommend buying the game on disc. It will not only work out cheaper than buying each individual episode but you can always sell/trade when your done.

You can get Fable to for around £17 from Gameplay, cheaper if there's stock at other places. ]Link

Nice one, good heads up for both the deal and the advice. H+R added.

Short answer no.

Long answer: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Seriuosly though, this is the full game, you wont need a Fable 2 disc. The game has just been split up into 5 parts, the first of which is free :gift:. There's no extra content, its exactly the same as the disc game released last year. :-D

wicked!

Do you need to be a Gold subscriber to live to get this, or is it free for Silver members?

Cheers, Des.

I don't know sorry, there hasn't been of any mention of needing Gold membership but MS might do their usual thing they do with demo's and have a short exclusive period. But lets hope not.

FFS, I only purchased this the other day....

Microsoft do irritate me when they do things like this....

What time does it go live???

this way it might be more expensive paying for a chapter at a time.

This is much better than releasing a demo!

Do these "episodes" include achievements seeing as they are fractions of the actual game?

Yeah, shame on you Microsoft, how dare you give something away free :roll:

At least when you finish it you can trade the disk in, with downloads you'd get nothing back so you are probably better off in the long run even if the downloads do mysteriously end up being cheaper, which I doubt.

Can you get this just being on silver?

Only the first chapter is free. The game has been split into 5 chapters each sold separately.

I think his point was if you have the full game on disc than it will probably cheaper than buying all the parts separately.

free for all, I've grabbed and played it. The second episode is available when you unlock an achievement (see below) for 950 points , I think off the top of my head.

They do, however in the free first episode when you unlock an achievement it pops up with a message on the screen saying "you have unlocked an achievement, download episode 2 to add it to your gamerscore" or somethign like that. When you click to download it, you are requested to pay 950 or so points to download the next 4.7gb part.

Is this a temporary or permenant offer?

youn can only get so far on the game the game requires you to go to a town you cna t enter

it lasted all of five minutes

Good game, really enjoyed it.. worth trying for free if you haven't already had it.

Free game, thats always a good deal. Wish I had Xbox live...

Great for those who can get this and havent tried the game before.

good game, looking forward to next installment

Does it really matter, just download it now, and should you need to delete it you can just re-download it :?

It's a good way to try the game. I was always unsure about trying Fable but now I have I'd buy it because as previous posts say it would be cheaper the buy the actual game than buy the episodes seperatly.

nice thanxs

If you just download EP 1 are there any achievements available in that Episode and if so is it awarded upon gaining it without having bought the other 4 eps . Which is what I thought the previous poster meant.
