[Dead] Free Fable II Game Download (FULL Version) via XBOX.com (7.0GB) File

Oh man, is this a resurgence of that episode 1 nonsense?

edit: Yeah. I already purchased this according to xbox.com. And recent topics in the SD forum confirm this is the episodic Fable 2. Episode 1 (the first 40 minutes or so) is free and then you pay for parts 2-5. Every few months someone stumbles on this, posts it somewhere, it spreads like wildfire as people go nuts, and then everyone realizes they aren't getting the game for free.

Please change the title before this gets out of hand.


If this is true, then I will change the title....but it appears to be the full game and some people on here and slickdeals are reporting that when it was just episode 1, the file size was only about 2 gigs, but this file size is the full 7 gigs, and appears to be the whole game. People downloads should be finished soon so we should know for sure.

It is the size of a full game but I would be willing to put a good chunk of money on the fact that it will prompt you to purchase an unlock key for the rest of the game. I never understood why they made it separate pieces and downloads when they could have you download the entire game and then just do a few clicks when you reached the end of each episode to continue on.

So it went through for me. Is this really the full retail game?

I think you may be right about this. Either that or they changed the way it works and is one download now. My apologies, but this has happened multiple times in the past and I've seen it get reposted over and over for a few days, not just on CAG but on blogs and forums everywhere.

You can't get banned for something like this unless you have to go out of your way to exploit the system. The worse that could happen is they take away your license, which I doubt they would do considering people have gotten plenty of DLC and games for free when it goes up and someone forgets to attach a price.

The link is still taking me to a page that says FREE and that it's a 7gb download.

Anyone with silver get this? I logged in with my gold account and it said I owned the content, so I tried with my girlfriend's account which is silver. It gave an error saying I needed the latest dashboard. I logged back in as me and "bought" it again and it added it back into my queue and it's currently downloading. Anyone else with silver have an issue, or is it something else?

I'm on silver and I got it added to my queue. Haven't gotten home and tried downloading it yet though.

Why is this in the graveyard already? Has it been confirmed to be a demo?

Maybe it's here because it's a price error?

Awesome! After I clicked Download, I then went to My Queue and the description underneath Fable II says that it is indeed the Full Game.

Interestingly enough, when I went to boot up my Xbox (with the new beta UI), Fable II showed up on my Active Downloads, but that it was "Assigned to Another Console." After I clicked further to inquire, it then gave me an option to "Download Now." Now, it is downloading (albeit very slowly)!

Many thanks, OP!

It has not been confirmed either way yet. Some people think it is just episode 1, however no one has posted yet who has completed the download to check.

Free but will really cost you 7 Gigs of space on your HDD.

It says that I need the latest version of dashboard to download. I thought I did but won't let me download.


That's the error I got on my girlfriend's account, but mine worked fine. She only uses my console, so I don't get why. Maybe try logging out and back in?

I thought that was just like the first hour of the game or something.

I was looking through old threads of Episode 1 links and those links take you to this so I figure we've got one of three scenarios here.

1) They have changed how they are doing the episode, having you download the full game and when you reach the end of the first episode, it'll bring a pop-up to purchase the next episode, something like some license key. I would say that this is the most likely.

2) They screwed up and accidentally linked the download to the full version. This means if you don't finish the download before they fix it then you won't get a full version. If you do finish it before it gets fixed, even they delist it you should be able to play without issue.

3) Microsoft just decided to give away the game to hype Fable III. I would say that this is the least likely thing on the list.

Thanks OP! I grabbed the full game and the 2 free add-ons. The free add-ons do not allow co-op gameplay through them. For that, you will need the premium versions of the add-ons.

From what I can tell, that link brings you to a page that isn't located on the regular Fable 2 page... Basically, it's a hidden free Full version. On the download it says "Xbox360 Game 7GB". If it was a demo, it would say "Xbox360 Demo", unless this one, for some reason, doesn't apply.

Even though I own it on disc, just purchased the full game for free. Not sure why this is marked dead. . .

I think you have that incorrect. The free versions allow you to play with someone who has purchased it, but not actually run those quests. If you get the free version you will not have access to the content from that pack if you play locally.

To play the new quests and enjoy the complete See the Future co-op experience, both co-op players must download the See the Future (Premium) pack. If you want to play co-op with a player who has already downloaded Fable II See the Future content, you will need to download the Fable II See the Future (Free) pack.
