Please!!! That would be so awesome!!!

Sorry, I can't contain my excitement for this game...

games4fun3905d ago

does it even say co-op?

Dr Pepper3905d ago (Edited 3905d ago )

It doesn't, but that is my guess for one of the features he reveals. There have been hints that they might include it (the OXM people talked about it in one issue). It may be a long shot but I hope it happens.

KidMakeshift3905d ago

I thought Co-op was already announced for Fable 2? At the end of the first trailer there's a guy and a girl who just killed a monster, so hopefully that's some indication that there will be co-op.

@ KidMakeshift

I don't think it's been confirmed but that part of the trailer is what I'm mainly talking about. It made people get the assumption that co-op would be included.

KidMakeshift3905d ago (Edited 3905d ago )

I'm 100% positive co-op will be in Fable 2. I don't see how they could exclude a feature like that this time around.

It'd be cool if they could actually add some MMO features like Monster Hunter and KUF:COD have. Even better, multiplayer lobbies would be town's actually integrated in the Fable world so you can go to auctions or barter, go to pubs, inns, diners, blacksmiths, etc. and interact with real people who can be either good or bad.

Dr Pepper3905d ago (Edited 3905d ago )

Well, it looks like we'll find out in February :)

I wonder what the other two will be, assuming co-op will be one of the topics...

That would be pretty cool with some MMO features, btw.

1. INteract with the dog
2. Interact with a cat
3. Interact with a tree
This is a joke in case anyone remembered gdc 07.

GastoncklovesMP3905d ago

I would Love CO-OP and what do you mean a joke?

FirstknighT3905d ago

The first Fable is one of the main reasons why I love playing video games. Fable 2 is going to be a monster hit!

poos33905d ago

this site is a joke the didnt approve the the lastes t dev diares which in on gametrailers btw this game is now open world with no restrictions u can travel every were in the world this game has become a conteder for goty in my books fable 1 although not a in depth rpg was an aaa game that still looks better than most next gen game to date and was a super polished game that showed lion heads has skills as devs the game was sooo well crated it was mamazing just to be in the worldfable 2 will no doubt build on that and become amazing like fable 1

Impact3905d ago (Edited 3905d ago )

I hate to disagree but I do, I thought fable one was crap from beginning to end, it was mega hyped and didn't deliver on any of the S#!t they promised.

However KOTOR was awesome from beginning to end.
this game has to surpass "The Witcher" in my book which I doubt it will do.

FirstknighT3905d ago

Explain please. No other console game in last gen gave such a rich experience like Fable. The only feature that didn't get included was not being able to have kids. Seriously, who cares about that. The first Fable had a living world that not many games can equally create.

KidMakeshift3905d ago (Edited 3905d ago )

The only thing I really didn't like was the childhood part and that after you finish training your character becomes extremely old within such a short time. Plus, the character scarred to easily.

chrno63905d ago

I know, it's quite wierd to see my character to age and look even older than his master and other characters. Overall it is a fun game but it did not blow me away.

Xanatos3904d ago

The game was simple way too simple, nothing you do makes much of a difference not even the armor you wear. The only thing they failed to deliver on was not your ability to have kids, a lot of things never came in the final build which made it an average game.
