GDC: New Fable II DLC within weeks

Molyneux spent "more time" on this one.

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has said that more Fable II downloadable content will be released within weeks.

"The next DLC comes out in the spring. We're in the spring now so don't think months, think more like weeks," Molyneux told Kotaku at GDC. "It's called See the Future."

"[Knothole Island] was done very close to Fable II and the team was tired and we sort of pushed ourselves to get something out early for the fans. This time we've taken a little bit more time on it, it's a little bit more story driven.

"It answers some of the questions if you're a real fan of Fable," he added. "It's going to test you a little bit emotionally as well. But I think the real unique thing here is it starts to tease and hint at what it starting to happen in the world of Albion and what is happening in the future."

And that future, Molyneux hinted, may extend past Fable II, which is hardly a surprise, after funny-man Jonathan Ross blurted that he had been offered a voice role in Fable III.

Peter Molyneux returns to the GDC stage this evening at 9.30pm GMT to deliver his talk on "Lionhead Experiments Reveal". We won't be reporting live from this session, but will cover any important news such as more details on See the Future.

Molyneux, however, has already announced that he won't be talking about the "unbelievably ambitious" project in development at Lionhead.

GDC had once been poised as the time and place for the reveal, although Molyneux said Microsoft wants sufficient "shock and awe" when the wraps finally do come off.

Fable II expanded back in January with the Knothole Island DLC. There's no set price for See the Future yet, but a copycat price of 800 MSP (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) makes sense.
