Pre-Order Fable 2 and get Pub Games Free

Yes, the headline is what you read it to be, pre-ordering Fable 2 will net you a free download of the Fable 2-related XBLA title “Pub Games”.

Don’t know what Pub Games is? For the uninitiated, it’s an Xbox Live Arcade game based on Fable. The coolest part about it though, is the fact that the money earned with Pub Games can be transferred to in-game currency in Fable 2. Talk about cool.

I’m a major fan of the original Fable, so I’m a bit impartient to play this one. Earning in-game currency while not in-game sounds cool enough to boost my enthusiasm for this one!

For the full scoop on Pub Games and the free preorder, check out the press release below.
