After having all the fun sucked out of that Collector’s Edition, it’s nice to see Lionhead Studios putting something back into Fable 2 … even if it is a prominent feature that was promised to be included anyway. That’s worth half a cheer, right?
According to the game’s development blog, the patch enabling online fiend slaying and frolicking has been completed and will be ready for download on day one. That’s October 21st if you’re in America, and October 24th if you …
