Microsoft continues to drop the ball with Fable 2, which recently lost online co-op at launch, and today lost the most unique items from its Collector’s Edition.
While confirming the release date (Oct. 21) of the Fable 2 Collector’s Edition, Microsoft announced that the contents of the Collector’s Edition have been hacked away.
“[D]ue to supply chain issues, we are revising the Fable II Limited Collector’s Edition and the estimated retail price will be reduced from $79.99 to $69.99 in North America or as applicable in your market,” said Microsoft’s statement. “The premium box, five printed fate cards, and Hobbe figure will not be available as part of the Limited Collector’s Edition. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
So what does the Fable 2 Collector’s Edition now contain? The Fable II game disc, a Making-Of DVD and exclusive in-game content (The Hall of the Dead dungeon,The Wreckager Legendary Cutlass Weapon, and Spartan armor and energy sword). The content requires Xbox Live, as it’s downloadable only.
