This month we are taking Fable 2 for the proverbial co-op spin on Xbox Live. We invite everyone to join us. We'll be hacking and slashing our way through quests, trading items and weapons through orbs, and admiring our host's hero.
One of the most revolutionary features with Fable 2 is the orbs. These floating balls represent real players in the game world. In an effort to try something new we want everyone interested in Fable 2 co-op night to send a friend request to Co-Optimus as we attempt to get as many orbs as possible in the Bowerstone market! And for you achievement whores out there we'll be trading hero dolls between us in an effort to collect all 6!
Update: We'll be streaming this LIVE from 7:30 Eastern to 10:00 PM Eastern. View it here.
The Co-Op Experience: Bring a buddy along as a henchmen through the single player story. Experience and gold earned as a henchmen will carry over to your own single player game.
The host player is able to set how much gold and renown their henchmen gets.
The unique aspect of the online mode is it displays orbs floating around your world that represent exactly where your friends are in the game that are currently playing. Simply walk up to an orb and invite a friend in, in a completely seamless experience.
Set 500 years after the original game, Fable 2 offers even more choices and features, while building on the core gameplay theme of Fable where every choice continually defines who you become, allowing you to truly live the life you choose.
