TGS: Fable II Patch On Day OneA patch enabling Fable II players to play with another person online over Xbox Live is on track to be released the first day the game is available in stores, according to Lionhead Studios head Peter Molyneux.
On Sept. 26, Microsoft let gamers know the title would not ship with online cooperative play and that the feature would be delivered in the form of an online update later, most likely within a week after the games launch.
In an interview at the Tokyo Game Show, the Fable II creator told IGN, "Im almost certain well have it for a day-one patch," when asked when gamers can expect the promised feature.
Molyneux said he could not point to one specific problem the development team had during the features implementation but rather said it was a matter of getting everything in the game to work smoothly over Xbox Live.
Fable II is scheduled for release on Oct. 21 in the U.S. So if Peter Molyneux gets his way, expect the online patch that day as well.
