Fable II to See the Future of DLC May 12

Brand-new DLC to cost 560 MS points; silver members to enjoy free multiplayer May 8 to 11.

Lionhead is no stranger to teasing new downloadable content announcements, though it doesn't have such a great track record on following through with them. Yesterday, Lionhead posted yet another teaser about a big upcoming announcement, promising "new can't-miss content," which was due to hit today.

It was obvious to all after the accident that lightning and solid steel pants don't mix.

Fortunately, the folks at Lionhead have not disappointed this time around, as they have announced that Fable II will be receiving new content in the form of the See the Future DLC, which is due to hit Xbox Live on May 12, costing 560 MS points (£4.70 or $6).

See the Future will let players return to the world of Albion, where they will be let loose on new quests. These include dealing with cursed items from Murgo the Trader, investigating a haunted town in the Ghosts of the Snowglobe quest, and donning new costumes in the Cursed Knight Quest. Fable II's signature dog will also return to help guide players on quests, with new alter egos in the form of a Dalmatian, a bloodhound, or a husky--though it isn't clear if these would just be implemented as new skins for the faithful sidekick or would be entirely new canines.

In addition, See the Future will also introduce new items, including psycho jester makeup, a braided ponytail hairstyle, and a backflip trick for dogs. These items will also be free to download separately from the See the Future DLC from Xbox Marketplace, so players who haven't purchased the DLC can continue co-op play with their friends.

As an added bonus, Xbox Live silver members will be given free access to Fable II online multiplayer from May 8 to May 11, and this promotion will be available for all Xbox Live regions.

Too bad this was such a short DLC...took me like an hour and a half to beat. They just hand out the new items like they are a burden. Any other DLCs should be much more widely expansive to the Albion world.

I´m totally feeling robdar608, another spell I´d like to see is the rage spell (minus the constant knocking down of enemies)

Fable 2 is a great game, aside from glitches/bugs here and there. I'm definitely going to get "See the Future". I enjoyed playing "Knothole Island" so I'm sure to enjoy this as well.

Love Fable, but this should be a free DLC add on for those who overpaid for Knothole Island (just too short for the $$) A few new spells would be cool. Spells like Vortex were totally useless. I miss Multi-arrow from the original Fable.

Will definitely be getting this when it comes out and probably ruining my chances of passing my exams :D

i hope to see the ability to have the dog skins or pick a dog implemented from the very start of the game. That would ad a bit of fresh feel for another round. And of course Peter, you could always throw in a new pub game. Maybe a few new spells, you got the foundation Peter, build on it. Make a real add-on. Knothole was lite. My wife even thought it was lacking. Dont get me wrong, I will be DL it the moment it hits Market. Plz let it be more more more.

(sigh)...all they had to do was take everything that made Fable so great and make it a much longer/bigger game. They just couldn't do that. Instead, they watered down all the best elements, introduced a funky magic system, and gave you piles of different ways to work, stylize, and buy real-estate...or live a second e-life.

Let me dive into Peters mind for a second and think.. (Petah: Mmm, yes yes.. mmm, yes my garden is quite nice with that fog machine I nicked from the dev team.. yes.. ohh my I have an Idea! Let's add in co-op where players cant go more than 30 feet away from each other and the camera is perpetually locked onto BOTH players even tho your playing Online with them on separate screens! Marvelous! I'm such a genius.. mm yes! Ohhhh and lets make the game hold the players hand and create that really casual feel to the game! So if your 26 and have a job and not enough free time, you can just beat the game in one night with no issues at all! Because.. everyone doesn't have a free weekend to indulge into an engrossing medieval RPG!! marvelous!! I'm such a brilliant man!!) But seriously, the DLC sounds pretty cool. :) Cheers. -D5

I hope this provides a new way to get the Expressions that can't be unlocked in the game alone? I don't have Backflip from Pub games, but I realy wish I could get that hat headband and moustache thing another way.

ive waste enough money one that game, fable to wasnt worth 60 bucks, there knothole island was a joke.

This sound awesome Lionhead! A good and fair price on this DLC too, Knothole island was a tiny bit overpriced. This I will definitely be getting, if only for the Husky doggie!

I only wish they'd let us find out what happened to Rose...

Love the game. I'm definitely going to get it. My wife is hooked and can't get enough. I also love the fact that you can change your dog. I always wondered what it would be like for your to choose what dog you can have. I had a husky and it would be nice to continue the tradition. Adding new quests and regions always makes for a better replay on a game. Why stop? Lets keep going!

chefbabyryan

As an avid Fable fan here are some ideas Lionhead. The next game should give the option to have the dog stay at home, say with your family. Giving the player the right to truly choose and adding a new dynamic to taking care of your family, maybe even have your things get vandalized if you are gone for long periods of time without a guard dog . Also i really think 1 button combat worked well but 1 button magic would be better assigned to a wheel system allowing you to cast a full range of spells at there individual levels. Please polish the bugs before the release, we would all rather wait a few more weeks then see inconsistent game play. And i am psyched that they are backing their word on new cool DLC. Cheers!

Would be sweet if they fixed all of the current bugs before releasing more content that you have to pay for. (regardless, I'm sure I'll buy it -- game is good even with the bugs)

I enjoyed Fable 2 when I played through it but come on! This is just too little DLC and way too late. This needed to come out months ago to be effective.

sounds cool looks like this is Lionheads way of finishing an unfinished game now if they just make the main story a bit longer I might give it another go

Wow, maybe I'll actually play it on Xbox live! The one thing that sold me on the game was the dog. For an a.i. it was solid! Already looks like my dog, but hurray to those that can apply the new character!

@55592: I think they are bitter about being promised the world, and then being given Fable. As Okassar says, Fable II is a well made game, it was just so painfully overhyped. If Fable II had a little more gameplay and a little less dog, it would be a better game. Tht said, I can't imagine anyone still playing it. I found it to be totally devoid of replay once I'd maxed my char and gotten legendary (or whatever) weapons.

I was think to get this but it comes out the same day as Sacred 2 so it will have to wait till im done with that game before I get it.

Just to clarify, This DLC is actually $7. 80 MS points=$1, so 80msp x 6=480msp, not 560msp. Just wanted to clear up that small typo. I recently bought Fable 2 on Amazon and should be getting it pretty soon in the next few days I hope. I am already interested in Knothole Island and now this DLC. I will probably get this first though since its $3 less and I have heard mixed feelings about Knothole Island.

This looks cool and this time around the DLC is reasonable. Definite buy.

How about making the combat system a little deeper? Aww never mind. For 6 bucks this is going to make fans of Fable II very happy, so that's good.
