Fable 3
Fable III Currently Free on Xbox Live
Written Monday, June 10, 2013 By Lee Bradley
View author's profile

The Games on Demand version of Fable III is currently available for free on Xbox Live.

If you go to Xbox.com the game is displaying at $19.99/£29.99. However, if you try and download the game direct from Xbox Live, it’s free. 

Whether this is a mistake or some kind of promotion before the expected reveal of Fable IV later today, we’re not sure. All we know is, if you can, get on it now.

Thanks to everyone that sent this in, and let us know in the comments if the game is not showing as free in your region.

Haha Europeans get even more fucked over prices than I thought. It's 39.99€ xD.

Got it for free and will be playing it alongside watching E3 (otherwise it'll just be too boring and I won't watch it at all).

Anybody know whether this game needs an online pass ?

@11 thanks :).

I was talking about maybe getting into Fable with a friend the other day but we'd heard from many people that the First was the best and from then on it just went downhill. Can't refuse a free one though.

for anyone not working YOU NEED A GOLD ACCOUNT and if its still not working go to xbox.com and change it to xbox.com/en-en/ and search for fable III and choose buy (it shows up for 19.99 or 29.99). Then change the payment method to points and it will be available for 0 points.

I'm sure this is not a mistake, I didn't even have to change to msp, it was written as free right away, that can't be a mistake! this is great, funny too, for the past week I wanted to play fable 2, played the first when it first came out, but I'll play the 3rd instead! if it's not a mistake, MS should do this more often!

"Hey everyone! we can be like Sony! We can give you free games!" Chooses possibly the worst 360 exclusive game.

@71

there is not much to choose from as Fable IV & Fable 1 HD are getting announced later so maybe that's why Fable III is free maybe?,

there is Fable The Journey but that's a newer title and sort of a spin off from the other Fable games.

@71. At least if I download this and quit xbox live gold I can still play it.

Ps+ is good if you're in it for the long run. A free psv game now and again is great. But xbox live is the best online entertainment service and that's a fact.

I don't need sweetened with free games every month. What's the point when they can't even control data protection!

I already have it. It's an okay game. I don't think it was as good as Fable II though. It's also too short and while somewhat amusing isn't the game it was hyped up to be.

Still, for free it is good value!

@78 I can keep my games for a year, I don't need more than a year to complete them, plus as long as I keep my subscription up, I can play them for as long as I want.

Also, how is Xbox Live the best live service going? I'll admit I have a 12month Subscription, but for what I pay, it's not worth it. I pay to go online in games and to use netflix, we don't get rewarded anything and after a year Microsoft go "Hey! Thanks! Heres 20microsoft points!"

With Sony, I don't have to pay for ANY online services AT ALL, I can not pay and get everything an Xbox Live Gold member gets or I can choose to pay a yearly fee to get a ton of free games and access to an extra online storage. Trying to say Sony's online is bad because of ONE incident over a year ago now is idiotic.

Just wait and see, with Xbox One needing to connect online every 24hours to play games and all the other crap MS is doing, MS are going to fail epicly.

I have it on disc but i still downloaded it so then i don't have to wreck my collectors edition disc lol.

just for people who are unsure if they can get it.

1.my country is UK

2. It seems to be a gold only deal because it is free on mine and my girlfriends gold account but not on my temp silver or my sisters silver account (which means it cant be a mistake)

3. I heard it is free for today only but even if its free for more than 1 day i would get it today just in case it does end tomorrow.

4. I'm guessing it is a promotion because of fable 4 and fable anniversary being announced.

happy gaming everyone

@EVERYONE I live in the UK and got this in time, when I got my friend to test it it said error, just now my friend (as of 20:48 BST) tried it, 'error', then he changed payment to MICROSOFT POINTS - via the 'x' button on payment screen if you didn't know -(still free don't worry) and it worked! Give it a go and tell me if anyone else's is working :)
