Lionhead plans to expand the world of Fable II with a new area, Knothole Island, on 12th December.

The downloadable pack will cost 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60), and should offer a fair chunk of content to wade through.

Knothole Island is dying, you see; golden sands and tropical vegetation have been covered with snow and the inhabitants are freezing. The hero's task will be to return the sun to the sky by facing challenges at three shrines.

The first screenshots show Knothole Island as dark and menacing, and populated by a new kind of shadow or wraith-like baddie.

Lionhead is also going to offer a free co-op patch to let people to play together. However, you won't be able to enjoy the Knothole content together unless you've both bought the Knothole pack.

Still, download either the co-op patch or the entire Knothole Island, and you'll be showered in gifts: Knight's Boots, Assassin's Gloves, a Weight Loss Potion, a silver book and more. Lionhead will also publish a hearty array of around 50 Leaderboards to check your progress on.
