Fable 2 co-op at launch - Lionhead

"It looks like we've done it."

Lionhead has tentatively announced a launch-day patch to enable online co-op in Fable 2.

"Remember we said we were busting our balls to get [the patch] ready in time for a 'Day One' release? Well - good news folks! It looks like we've done it," reads a developer update on the Lionhead blog.

"Taken into account we don't fail certification," added the post.

That's good news for Europe, where Fable 2 arrives on 24th October, which is three days later than the US and also my birthday. So it could even be out on day four in the US and still be here on day one for us. That's the kind of maths we like.

Without the patch, it will be impossible to invite your friends to join in with your world, after Lionhead said it was holding this element back for polish. The orbs representing other players and their in-game activities will still be included in the boxed code, however.

With the game just two weeks away, you can look forward to our review soon. Head over to our Fable 2 gamepage for the story so far.
