Fable 2 gets October date

It's finally "finished" - Molyneux.

Peter Molyneux has said Fable 2 will be released in October.

Confirmation came at the end of a playable demonstration during the Microsoft E3 press conference, which revealed the role-playing game is finally "finished".

We were also introduced to the purple orbs dotted around the world. These represent your friends playing their single-player game, and you can go up to them and invite them straight into your world.

"No lobbies, just that immediacy of being able to call people into your world," said Molyneux.

You can read much more about how that works in our extensive hands-on with Fable 2, which went live earlier this evening.

You can also pop over to our live text coverage of the Microsoft E3 press conference to see what else happened.
