Fable 2 Makes You Visit the Official Website to Unlock In-Game Treasures

With Fable 2′s release date just a week away now, it’s probably about time Lionhead Studios launched an official website for the game. But for a game as huge as Fable 2, they couldn’t just launch any plain old website. No, they had to concoct a grand flash puppet-show/interactive story to introduce the tale behind your character. As the story unfolds, you’re presented with various choices, which in turn affect the course of the whole plot. At the end, you’ll receive one of five possible prizes, depending on the choices you make (a more “nice” approach will grant you a chicken suit, for example). This item can then be tied to your Gamertag for use in the actual game once you purchase it. Between this and the Pub Games, gamers are going to have plenty of swag at their disposal before they even pop in the Fable 2 disc. There’s also a side game called “Chicken Kickin’,” which naturally has you punting future McNuggets at various targets for a high score.

Here’s the catch though: we’ve heard from several sources that you actually need to visit this website in order to unlock at least one treasure chest in the game. Apparently, there’s one chest located in the hero’s guild that prompts you to visit the game’s official website in order to unlock it. That’s not so bad, but I’d still hate to be the person going about their merry way to avenge their parents’ death and then suddenly be told, “Hey, you. Get up and go to this website. We’re not giving you cool stuff until you do.”

That is an AWESOME idea. It gives a pretty nice example of some of the choices in the game. Plus i got 2 extra items. Now, added to my Pub Games and Pre Order bonuses, i’ll have 15 or 20 items when i launch the game.

It wont load for me, I guess I’m SOL. Ohh, and I got the money to transfer from Pub Games to Fable2, but it didn’t load my gun or sword, or any of that stuff. Any idea how to fix that? KrawlerProductions@Yahoo.com

to get the items you won on the pub games you have to go speak a game master and you will have them.
