A playable demo of Fable: The Journey will be released via Xbox LIVE on September 17, Lionhead and Microsoft have announced.

Fable: The Journey immerses players in the tale of a young dweller named Gabriel and follows him on a journey to change his fate and become the hero that battles 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.

Those unsure about how the Kinect-only game will turn out won't want to miss the demo.

The game hits stores on October 12.
