Fable II Knothole Island dated, free goodies too

Fable II fans can prepare to set sail for Knothole Island, as the first of the game’s downloadable content has finally been dated. Initially delayed due to “technical issues,” Lionhead have announced that the expansion will be available to download from Xbox Live Marketplace next Tuesday, Jan. 13, for 800 Microsoft Points. Knothole Island includes new quests, weapons, items, outfits an more; full details of which we’ve already covered, ‘cos we’re awesome.

In addition to this, the Lionhead blog has announced that Jan. 13 will also see the release of a free title update. The patch will allow players who who haven’t downloaded Knothole Island to continue playing co-op with those that have, add friends leaderboards and also contain some special items including Knight’s Boots, Assassins Gloves, a Weight Loss Potion, a collectible silver book and more. No news on those bug fixes though.
