Lionhead Studios has announced a finalised date of the 13th of January for the global release of the first nugget of Fable II DLC.
Knothole Island will sit just off the coast of Albion and will feature new quests, characters, shops, items and weapons. It'll cost 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).
That isn't the only thing to look forward to, however. Lionhead has also revealed that "a free content update" will be available on Live, bringing a number of "gifts" from the people of Knothole Island to players, even if they don't purchase the DLC itself.
Items include Knight's Boots, Assassins Gloves, a special Weight Loss Potion, a collectible silver book and more. The update will also allow access to 50 new leaderboards on Lionhead.com.
A new premium theme based around the DLC is available now from both Live and Xbox.com. It's 250 Microsoft Points to you squire, if you like that sort of thing (or GBP 2.12 / EUR 3).
There's a brand new developer diary here - which hints at some of the details of the package.
