Halo Energy Sword in Fable 2

#1 Posted by Raiden36O (123 posts) -

I stumbled across this video on youtube today which shows what looks like the energy sword from halo as a usable weapon in fable II. I dont care too much about this since i probably wont use it (dont play fable to play halo) but i thought it was interesting. Who knows might be able to dress your hero up in master chief armor lol.

I don't think it is supposed to be a halo energy sword, they just look a bit similar. Here is a comparison:

The Fable one has a normal sword handle, and comes to a point at the end, the Halo one has two blades that do not come together, and has a weird funky futuristic handle. The shape is vaguely similar, but I'm sure Halo wasn't the first time that general shape was used for a sword.

Assuming this is real I'm hoping it's a deliberate nod to Halo, but it does look quite a bit like plagrism on the developers part.

It IS the energy sword by the way. You get that and Minstral Chief armour with the limited editon copy of the game.
And i'm so gonna be wearing/using them! :D

Actually you get that super-awesome cutlass with the game (seperate from the Minstrel Chief armor), but this sword comes with minstrel chief, so I've heard.

No doubt that is an energy sword. I think that's pretty sweet just like how MGS4 had the Altair costume. I hope there are other nods to games in Fable 2.

I'm a bit disappointed that it's not identical to the Halo sword, but it's close enough. I wonder how you obtain it. Surely you don't just find an alien sword in your local shop?

Am I looking at Soul Calibur IV?

yeah it is really dumb kinda puts you out of the game for a second when you can dress up like master chief and have a energy sword just go play halo.

It really doesn't fit the game, and seems like  a cheap cash in. Fortunately I'm probably getting the regular edition.
