Around the beginning of E3 I spotted various reports saying that Fable III was free to download. At first it felt like it was a mistake because it was believed a certain method was needed to be done in order for it to work, then Microsoft announced that it wasn’t a mistake and that anyone could download Fable III the usual way – for free.
Little did we know that this was the first title to kick off Microsoft’s new scheme where Xbox Live Gold players get two free games to download per month. Similar to what PlayStation were already offering with their PlayStation Plus scheme, Xbox Live Gold Subscribers will soon get two free games a month to download and keep in their personal collection – forever.
Details on exactly what titles will be included are thin. We know from E3 that the first two games will be Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed II.
So what are you waiting for? Go get Fable III for free now!
