Release date announced for Fable 2

Lionhead Studios has announced that Fable 2 will be available on European shelves on October 24th, and also released details on the Limited Edition copy of the game.

Anyone lucky enough to get their hands on the Limited Edition version will get a few extra goodies on top of the game. Firstly, expect a Bonus DVD which will include a making-of feature and concept art viewer.

You'll also get a collectible Hobbe figure, five printed Fate cards and a 48-hour Xbox Live Gold trial card.

Probably the most exciting part of the bundle is the bonus in-game content, which includes "The Hall of the Dead" dungeon, "The Wreckager" cutlass weapon and Otherwordly bonus. You must have a Live account to access these extras, but if you like the game enough to but the Limited Edition, we don't think that will be a problem.

US gamers will get the game a few days earlier on October 21st.
