Omg it's downloading! This is so awesome!!

Note to people:

http://slickdeals.net/?sdti...

Use that link once you sign in, otherwise they will charge you standard fee.

Note that there is another free game on XBL, though the name escapes me. It's a simple 2D side-scroller for those interested. Flow is also free on PSN while we're at it.

I love this! I needed an RPG and had nothing to play for my consoles.

added it to my 360 queue
so when i get home i will dl it. I liked the free episode they offered before and was going to get the full game at some point. Now that point is now.

Excellent. (bill & ted style)

edit: it has to be the full game. The first ep was only 1+ gb. This one is 6.6gb.

@Alpha-Male22
Honestly I think he's confused. When I downloaded it, it specifically says "Fable 2 FULL Game". When I downloaded the first episode months ago, it said Fable 2 episode one. Even the description for Fable 2 was the full game, on the episodes downloads, it says download episode one now and continue playing to unlock more episodes for purchase, or something like that.

EDIT: Also, episode 1 is only a 1-2GB download, not 7GB.

I'm on this like white on rice, but...WTF? Why is it free?
-Alpha  +   1648d ago
MS's twitter is saying it's only Episode 1. Others are saying they are collecting achievements and getting past episode 1. MS may be trying to persuade people to cancel their downloads, so I'm going to stick in and see what happens. Has to be a mistake that they are trying to cover up.
Takoulya  +   1648d ago
Works. This is Microsoft's strong point. Marketing. More people will get Fable 2 and will be wanting some more. Fable 3 comes out and gets killer sales. No matter how much you hate Microsoft, you have to admit that they have great advertising schemes.
nation120  +   1648d ago
u download the full game but only get to play the first chapter....u gotta pay to play the rest....like this is microsoft they never give out anything for free.
darthv72  +   1648d ago
@nation
can you verify this? I know that when they offered up episode 1 it wasnt a full 6.6gb download. Did you get this game and play up to where ep 1 would end and have it show you something to the extent that in order to play you had to pay?

Really, I am curious now.

I went back through my purchase history to when I got the free episode and it shows full game then too but it really amounted to around 2gb. Interesting...........

vulcanproject  +   1648d ago
Yup worked fine with my old save. First it didnt apply the update when logged online, but then i let it get to the main menu offline, then logged and and applied the update when asked worked fine after that :-)

Microsoft have clearly just cocked up and responded taking it down, attempting to convince people downloading it that it wasnt the real deal. Those that stuck it out, well done. From this small window of opportunity, you got yaself a free game lol

Ive been milking that Bing rewards thing for a few weeks now also. Getting 200ms points for every computer I sign up with a new account. Heh. Rounding 1000msp right now. Just gotta get a few friends who dont care for the points to do my bidding and sign up more accounts for me.

for anyone curious: https://ssl.bing.com/reward...
sign up using Firefox or IE as yer browser and you get 250 reward points. Redeem those points in the redemption center where they have 100msp. You can only make one purchase at a time so purchase 100 then purchase another 100. In a few weeks theyll send you the point codes. Repeat process with a different computer.
Im sure someone knows how to get around this and use a single computer, but Im not that smart.I have 3 coms in my house so thats 600msps right there plus the computers at my girlfriends.
And any friend I can get to do so for me as well. Plus some legit uses got me another 100 reward points by just using there toolbar :P

Blacktric  +   1648d ago
Well COINTELPRO, it's your own opinion and I respect that, but for most of us, console gaming is better. Not because we got the best graphics, sound, upgradable components etc. It's because it's simple and fun. On topic; I seriously can't believe this. It's just pure win for us gamers. BTW there's none of that region/IP locking crap for Fable II. So, if you are living in a non-supported country like me, you can download the game without having a problem.

I think thats easy to see as it's obviously not me.. I lost 2 bubbles so far for attacking fanboys as your all lowlifes and N4G mods need to get off there a$$3$ and do something about you people.
reckoner  +   1647d ago
Do you not see everyone's comments saying it worked?
Why do you automatically assume that this is a "fanboy" attempt? And why does it bother you so much that this game was released for free for a short period of time?
gamingdroid  +   1647d ago
@reckoner
Because vhero is a fanboy himself and when looking through his fanboy goggles it appears that any positive Xbox 360 news is concocted by the opposition!

By the way, I can confirm it worked for me and it was the entire game without the premium DLC.

i did it by changing the xbox website to the usa one, clicked international and clicked usa, then i signed in as my Uk account, then i typed in fable 2 and it was there for free, but microsoft fixed it now,doesn't work anymore, lets just hope they dont delete it from my download list

@esco
Those have always been free, they are just so you can play co-op with other people that have the "premium" versions.

You can tell the difference because after it says See the Future it'll either say (free) or (premium) after them.
blue7xx7  +   1648d ago
It doesn't work I tried downloading the DLC "See the Future" and it said I was downloading the full 500 MB DLC and when I go play it. It tells me I have to pay for it I did get free items though just for downloading it.

I haven't tried downloading the full game since I already have it so who knows if that works. There was a patch for Fable 2 that I had to download so maybe they have already blocked it/Patched it.

Those aren't the 'real' dlc content.
There's a 'free' and a 'premium' content.
The free version, which EscoBlades showed, is only for co-op.
Meaning it only lets you play with someone who has the premium.

SexyPrawns  +   1648d ago
NO!

It's not the full game!

It's a trick!

This promotion has been going for months. How have you guys missed this?

It says "Download the full game of Fable II for free!"

It downloads the full game, but you really only get to play the first chapter before it makes you pay for more chapters.

I'm serious.
T9X69  +   1648d ago
Um no, for that you only download the first chapter which is something like 1.2GB, not 6.5GB. When you log into your account and hit add to queue, it says "Fable 2 Full Game". The chapters part was awhile ago, and as mentioned before, you only download 1.2GB or so of the game, and when you reach a certain point, it ask you to download the rest of the game if you wish to play. Trust me, I tried it when I sold Fable 2, but now that I just got the full game for free, it's all gooood.
