Fable II Getting Some Good News

A dev blog hints at a big announcement concerning the world of Albion.

Have you heard about this game called Fable II? It's definitely one of my favorite games that I've played this year, and I'm still hopping in and out of the world when I find the time. Imagine my surprise when, less than a month after its U.S. release, I hear whisperings that the world of Albion will be hit with a big announcement in the coming week.

*SPOILERS* It's a cat!
A post on the Fable II dev blog states the following:

We've got some G o o d [Good] news for all Fable II fans next week, dare I even say it's quite a big announcement? Yes of course I dare say it's a big announcement regarding Fable II, next week!

So what is it? Who knows!  Maybe it's new quests? A better map system? A Lancer?

Personally, I'd be happy if they just added some new clothes, particularly a giant suit of armor. My bad-ass hero deserves something a little more fitting than the fancy-lad clothes he is currently sporting.

I'm as curious as you are, so anyone else want to float some ideas as to what it could be? Vinny Caravella on Google+

Hmm, next week is the launch of the New Xbox Experience, could they be related somehow? Playable Xbox Live Avatars, that is my guess.

Going Postal, shove a gun up your dogs ass. That would be great.

Wow having a cat running alongside me is not a bad idea... Sabre tooth tiger... One can only imagine...

Yeah I have a feeling this has to do with NXE also, I just can't think of how.

Well ever since i finished the game weeks back, i've always thought they would add a DLC story quest, that takes you through winter or something, hell a better map system would be good enough, but i do hope it is something "in game"

I must say, the lack of clothing in that game brings me down a bit but i've managed to survive so far with the aid of Dye's

Better Co-Op...??

Fable 2 lost chapters?

Posted by tak

It's probably going to tie into the dashboard update; however, I would be very surprised if it was anything related to avatars like kraznor thinks,  Fable 2 is rated M and you have to have a lower rating to have avatars in the game.

Hmmm, very much interested to see what they're going to do.

Roundabout sentences. ur doin it rite.

Could it be....A GAME WORTH PLAYING?!?!  DUH DUH DUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHH  o.O

Posted by Scooper

They'll be adding WiiMotion Plus support so you can play 'throwing disc' with your dog that's SOOOOO CUUUUUUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Posted by Milkman

My guess it will probably be some new side quest DLC.

Posted by Snail

LANCER!

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Hmm... Perhaps DLC that you have to pay for? Perhaps a patch that fixes the numerous glitches in the game? nah, perhaps something to do with one of Peter Molyneux's numerous fetishes. Dog Armor.

Blow up dolls?

Posted by Psynapse

They won't do DLC Story so close to release... Hell GTAIV is still to get the DLC story.. but i'm probably wrong :P

I hope more weapons, armor and bug fixes... Different pets too ?? Hmmmm so many possibilities!!

Posted by DrRandle

*Throws some chicken bones and tries to read them* I see... Some costumes... maybe... a weapon or two... and... a spell.

World of Fablecraft
Fable II, but, you know, MMO.

Kill the load times?  Honestly, I think I could like this game if 1/2 of the time I wasn't staring at a loading screen.

A wider selection of condoms.

I love the game, and this sounds great and all... but...

I'm still waiting to receive the download code that was supposed to be packed in with the LE version I spent the extra cash on. Since I already finished the main quest the other day, this is not cool.
Posted by donaldkhogan

Maybe they are fixing the movement?  I'd really like it if my guy didn't seem to float all over the damned place!

Posted by bwooduhs

Considering NXE is also out next week it could be something to do with avatars. God i hope not.

Posted by HatKing

Co-op allowing online players to split apart or use their actually character?  That'd be great.  Maybe a handful of quests and locations is more realistic.

******SPOILER*******

Well there is already a Sex Change in the game, so probably not that lol  ;)

Well they way that the wrote G o o d with the letters spread out suggests maybe that the world or game is getting an expansion.

Posted by RollingZeppelin

I just want my wife and child back that were taken away from me by the second wedding ring bug. :(

If they say that they fixed most of the bugs, I'll be extremely happy!

Posted by Coldbrand

I'd be nice if they actually made the co-op what everyone was expecting. I think that's the only thing that's really something worth being considered "big".

Posted by Hoppondeez420

 Maybe they add fucking real co-op and get rid of that half assed attempt they currently offer, that would make the game better ten folds, wow my very own camera to move when playing with my friends, make it happen lionhead

Posted by fujitr0n

My guess is that they're going to patch the game so that you can play co-op with your actual characters... or at least, that's what I would like them to do... Heck! they might even decide to charge points for it!

Posted by Dryker

Regardless of what it is, I'm buying it. But if we're making requests... I'm pretty sure armor is a given. It was one of the first absences I noticed. Although, it wasn't a problem for me since all the included outfits are of the type I always wanted in Fable 1. Stuff for my dog would be sweet, but I don't know if that would be too difficult. House placement would be amazing. Imagine having the ability to choose any model house in the game and place it anywhere in the world you choose. That would be cool, but again, perhaps too difficult. More outrageous weapons could be interesting. Maybe some angel's wings or some bat wings, only available when you're ultimately good or evil, respectively. The horns are okay, but the halo is annoying ( too tacky and disruptive of my ensem).

Posted by Smersh

Hmmm... black skin?!

Posted by AspiringAndy

Bug Fixes please :)
And like more storyline, it could go to where hammer, reaver or Garth went off to.

Posted by killdave

Golden lancers ftw !!

Posted by darkjester74

I would be happy if they just made menus easier/faster to navigate, but that's probably asking too much.

My guess is new clothes/weapons.

Posted by Soap

Is it going to compensate for the absolutely pathetic ending?

Anyone who's finished that game should have an idea of what it will probably be (spoilers ahead)





A string of new quests with you reclaiming the tower from the crazy fortune lady, as she kicks you out at the end.

Posted by Greaves

hopefully they fix one of the many bugs in this game, its really bad and annoying

Posted by Anviltongue

How about adding more dogs to the world?  It would improve the immersion by a wee bit.  Why do I have the only freakin' dog in the world?!  Maybe give me the opportunity to sell him, since he is so rare and all...

I would also take bug fixes, new equipment of all kinds, improved co-op, the ability for your children to grow up all the way and assist you in your adventures, more unique NPCs or even a Peter Molyneaux NPC as a henchman (or to harm).

Posted by Jimbo

The last third of the storyline?   The other 8 hours the main quest was supposed to last?

Probably something groundbreaking like a slightly different coloured metal detector.

Posted by herrbasan

I'd love a sort of patch that, once the game is installed on the HD, will stich all maps together into one seamless world with a Chrystal Dynamics kind of loading concept. But my guess is that there will be PvP Online Gameplay.

But what Lion Head should do is to take this really awesome game engine and concept and make a few sequels out of it. I'd love that.

Posted by PLWolf

Some new quests would be awesome. I love Albion, give me more things to do in it!!

Posted by I_am_Lono

How about fixing the disgustingly broken co-op in the game?
