Gears 2, Fable II GOTY editions on the way

Special editions of two massive Xbox 360 exclusives are on their way to Europe next month. Both Fable II and Gears of War 2 will be getting the Game of the Year treatment, complete with downloadable content, on Sept. 18.

Of course, we already had a good idea that the Fable II GOTY edition was on the way, with online retailers jumping the gun when they listed the game earlier this month. But it’s all official now — according to Eurogamer, at least — with the special edition containing the Knothole Island and See the Future DLCs.

Not to be outdone, Gears of War 2 is also getting in on the GOTY action. Everyone’s favourite wife-murdering sim will come bundled with the All Fronts Collection, 19 multiplayer maps and the Road to Ruin campaign.

As far as pricing goes, in Europe both GOTY editions will carry an RRP of £39.99/€64.99. As far as U.S details go, nothing has been officially announced, although Kotaku have spotted Gears of War 2: GOTY for $40 over at GameStop, listed to ship on Sept. 1. Interestingly, that particular edition comes with a download token for the add-ons, rather than containing the DLC on the disc.
