Whoa, Microsoft Giving Away Fable II, That’s Right, It’s Free (UPDATE)

by Ernice Gilbert on October 15th, 2010, under Hot, Lionhead Studios, Microsoft, News

UPDATE: The game’s no longer free on Live, you had your chance, then.

Original Story: Stop whatever you’re doing now, turn on that Xbox 360 of yours, and get to downloading Fable II. Redmond is offering the game for free at no extra cost to you.

The four steps to follow are child’s play:

1 – Click through here
2 – Sign into your Xbox Live Account
3 – Click Download to Xbox 360
4 – Fable II, yes the full thing, will be downloaded the next time you sign into Xbox Live from your Xbox 360

Life is good. Is this some kind of thank you to the almost 500,000 gamers who purchased the console in September? Cause that’s surely one of the best deals ever.

Thanks, Slickdeals.

    It will not let me purchase it. It tells me that I have to buy it from the online xbox live marketplace, but when I get on xbox live it says I have to pay 19.99.

    You know what? I have had Castlevania for the last few days and I have not even played it yet. I do not want to deal with the file corruption problems.

    @GAME: You got it?

  10. Fri, 15th Oct 2010 at 6:43 pm

    @Josh: I haven’t experienced that….. I heard it’s rampant….. Got Enslaved yet?

    Okay, so hear is the story with Enslaved. I got it from gamefly at the same time as Castlevania, but it took so long for it to get to me that I sent it back the next day. The reason is because I want Vanquish more and if I did not send the game back the next day, I would not get it. I am disappointed that I did not get to play it, but I was going to rush through it anyways, so I will just get it later. It took 7 days for those 2 games to get to me from gamefly. That is the longest I have ever waited. It usually only takes 3 or 4 days.

    Why you luck little…..

  14. Fri, 15th Oct 2010 at 6:49 pm

    The reason I kept Castlevania instead of Enslaved is because the demos. Castlevania left a better impression on me after playing the demo.

  15. Fri, 15th Oct 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Oh, and I sent Enslaved back Wednesday and Gamefly has already received it. I think Vanquish will be my next review.

  16. Fri, 15th Oct 2010 at 6:52 pm

    @Josh: Yeah, Castlevania’s good. It’s darn long game, too. But tonight and over the weekend, it’s all MOH….Hope the guys are primed!

  17. Fri, 15th Oct 2010 at 6:53 pm

    Nice! Looking forward to it!

  18. Fri, 15th Oct 2010 at 6:53 pm

    Yeah, I plan on hanging onto Castlevania for a while. I will be on all weekend on MOH.

    I just started playing Castlevania and it is great.

  21. Fri, 15th Oct 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Yes it is! Wish it had multiplayer…

    i was really disappointed with enslaveds storyline.
    ok, it has a good twist at the end, and i like it when games leave endings up to peoples digression.
    love to go further into details but i wont because it will spoil the story, but if you want a explanation of the story just type enslaved ending into google.
    gamespot has a forum on there discussing the ending, the developers obviously have not clarified it but i think whats there is spot on.
    its just too hollywood and cliched for my liking, far too far fetched.

    Nothin like Uncharted ;-)

  24. Sat, 16th Oct 2010 at 5:45 am

    Nope, nothing like Uncharted… cliche

  25. Sat, 16th Oct 2010 at 10:37 am

    uncharteds the same.
    go half way across the world to find a dagger you have no idea even exists!
    not to mention the plot has more holes than Swiss cheese!
