Lionhead Studio's Peter Molyneux came to the Microsoft keynote at the 2008 GDC packing new Fable 2 footage and details on cooperative gamplay.
Molyneux first showed off a new money making minigame for Fable 2. What's interesting is that this minigame can be purchased and played on Xbox Live weeks before Fable 2 is released, permitting players to earn some extra in-game money beforehand. Winnings from this gambling title (a cross between roulette and craps) can be transfered into the full game when its released.
Of course, the most anticipated Fable 2 announcement is co-op gameplay. This game allows anyone else playing Fable 2 to log into your game via their gamertag and play alongside you. Be careful though: invited players can do permanent damage to your Fable 2 game world. In the above video you'll see that Molyneux plays as a female character that goes home to see his (her) husband -- too bad his co-op buddy kills the husband with a gunshot.
What do you think of this so far? Are you looking forward to this game's co-op gameplay?
