So I guess we’re supposed to celebrate the fact that a new feature is finished for Fable II that should have been included in the game in the first place. Several weeks ago, Lionhead Studios let slip that Fable II’s co-operative online play wouldn’t be accessible when the game launched. Rather, they would be working on a patch for it.
However, it seems those crazy dudes have gotten their act in order, and the co-operative patch will be ready the day you buy the game. Joy!
To me, it’s a little ludicrous that a day-one launch of co-op wasn’t an absolute necessity before going gold, but whatever. Kind of emblematic of the growing trend of game studios to take a “we’ll just patch that trash later” mentality. It shouldn’t be acceptable to launch without certain features.
Oh well. The bottom line is, you’ll get to come see the world that I rule with an iron fist on release day. Tremble!
