Microsoft and Lionhead Studios today announced the May 2009 release of Fable II DLC, See the Future, to be available exclusively on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
See the Future is described as an action-packed journey that requires players to lift the curses placed on three mysterious items that have come into the possession of Murgo the Trader. Players will be given the chance to heed the call for a hero to restore colour and balance to the world, or let Albion fall into darkness.
Those who emerge victorious will receive a quest that provides a vision of Albion’s future and what lies ahead for those born into the heroic bloodline.
The new quests in See the Future will bring players face-to-face with new characters, creatures, events and legendary artefacts, including:
Murgo: Having first met him during the childhood sequence of “Fable II,” Murgo returns to Bowerstone Market to bring an amazing array of new wares, including potions that can transform canine companions into new breeds.
The Ghosts of the Snowglobe Quest: Holding a disturbing secret, the small model village inside it was once a real town in Albion. The people who once inhabited it are now ghosts condemned to endless torment until the shadowy threat that cursed them is defeated.
The Cursed Knight Quest: Forever banished to a land beyond the dead, the Cursed Knight awaits a hero who has the strength and will to dress up in convincing costumes, even imitating a hobbe or balverine, to save him from his fate.
The Colosseum: The Colosseum puts even the Crucible to shame. Only the greatest heroes have triumphed here. Players’ abilities will be put to the test to prove themselves in combat once and for all, to win the ultimate in prizes.
Additionally, See the Future offers free unique items to all, including Welley’s soldier helmet and other clothing, a braided ponytail and other hairstyles, psycho Jester make-up, a new hero expression, the back flip trick for your dog, and a collectible Murgo the Trader gold statue.
Fable II: See the Future will be released in May priced 560 MS Points.
