For anyone who hasn’t given Fable II a shot yet can now check it out on Xbox Live as it has been opted for an episodic release. The first episode, which is available for free on Xbox Live allows gamers who may not be so confident in their abilities to check out the first of five installments completely free. The first episode will cover the childhood of your hero as well as the early quests while you’re still in your youth, complete with achievements. Once you’ve completed that first installment, you can opt to purchase the next episode or stop. Conversely, you can pick up the full retail copy and whatever you’ve completed episodically will be completely compatible. The episodes are also compatible with any of the add-on content that is currently available.
