Fable Anniversary Goes Gold

By Jonathan Barnes, 2 years ago
Chicken Chasers rejoice! In a blog post today, Lionhead has confirmed that Fable Anniversary has gone gold and is on schedule for its early February release.

Gold 1


Lionhead went on to confirm that the game will receive retailer-exclusive content in the form of the following outfit and weapon packs.

Peirates Pre-Order Pack
Gold 3

Peirates Outfit

Peirates was a famous plunderer, known for travelling uncharted waters to take entire cargo ships hostage for their most expensive items. He was also known by the name "Pete" in less formal circles.

Peirates Cutlass

A weapon used at sea needs to be both practical and effective. Peirates spent years refining this weapon so that the hook could be used to catch fish, the tip could be used to eat fish, and the blade could be used to slit a man's throat.
Snowspire Pre-Order Pack
Gold 2

Snowspire Guard Outfit

Made from genuine horse hair, this outfit is said to calm even the most vocal of criminals.

The Jackarse

An age-old popular pasttime was run by a chap named Jack, who used to slap people around the face with a dead fish until they fell onto their arse. The rest, as they say, is history...
Apollo's Pre-Order Pack
Gold 4

Apollo's Outfit

Apollo is the pseudonym for the leader of The Grey Company, the man responsible for monitoring Lady Grey's financial investments. As fearsome as that may sound, he had a reputation for being incredibly nice, often using his own money to bail out any villager that couldn't afford that months rent.

Apollo's Crossbow

Based on a centuries old concept, Apollo wanted to create a modern crossbow with the feel of a relic from the past - and thus this crossbow was born. Dependable in combat, but also pretty tasty to look at.
Lionhead didn't mention which retailers were going to be carrying which packs, so be sure to check with your favorite retailers before making a purchasing decision.

Finally, for those who simply HAVE to have everything, Lionhead confirmed that all of these packs will be available for purchase in the Xbox Games Store later in the year.

Fable Anniversary is set for release on February 4th in North America, February 6th in Asia, and February 7th in Europe. You can check out the additional bonus content that will be in the First Edition copies of the game here.
