Ahead of their E3 press conference, Microsoft must be looking for a bit of gamer good will by offering a digital version of Fable III at no cost to Xbox Live Gold members. Silver members? They have to pay the usual $20 price. So it’s sort of free.
An HD remake of the original Xbox-only Fable titled Fable Anniversary is set for release later this year.
No word on how long Fable III will remain free. If interested, it would be best to start the 5.6GB download on the Xbox Live Marketplace ASAP.
Fable III was an inconsistent, if underrated gem with some grandiose, memorable missions. A few spoofs are more than worth the time investment if you’re a Gold member.
