Lionhead have announced that their toils over the co-op patch have been given the green light by Microsoft and will be ready for launch tomorrow.
You'll finally get to poke around your mates Albion, and maybe their spouse, whilst in the comfort of your own gaming lair at home.
"Lionhead and Microsoft Game Studios confirmed today that the online co-op “Fable II” multiplayer feature update is confirmed for a first day free download on Xbox LIVE, worldwide (21st October)," blogged Sam, the community man.
"We are pleased to provide “Fable II” fans around the world with the chance to hop in and out of their friend’s “Fable II” worlds, to meet their heroes, dogs, spouses and experience Albion, together online. “Fable II” will be available at retailers throughout North America on October 21 and across Europe on October 24."
Now if only the 24th would get its finger out and arrive faster. Faster!
"Oh, for what its worth, not even we at Lionhead have received our own personal retail copies... granted, we could always play it on the devkits... but there is nothing better than sitting on your own couch in your own living room and in your own pants (hopefully), playing the game on your own TV and handing the second controller to your own (well, hopefully) partner for coop." Faster damn it! Tick tock.
