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.



This type of stuff is starting to scare me. I'm starting to not recognize video games anymore. What happened to the days of just paying for a full game.

You'll probably end up paying more. When it's all said and done. No company ever does anything like this over convenience to please the consumers. There's always an angle where the company benefits and gets richer.
