A playable demo of Fable: The Journey is now available to download on Xbox LIVE, Microsoft has announced.

The demo is 1.22GB, but we're not sure exactly what part of the game is featured. You'll need a Gold account if you want to download the demo now, or wait a week for it to become available to all.

Fable: The Journey immerses players in the tale of a young dweller named Gabriel and follows him on a journey to change his fate battling the corruption that plagues Albion.

Built for Kinect for Xbox 360, Fable: The Journey features new territories of an expanded Albion alongside bigger and more dangerous enemies. The game also marks the return of Theresa in her fourth Fable game.

The game hits stores on October 12.
