Fable III and GFWL

#1KillerTrufflePosted 11/11/2013 11:36:07 AM
Comments about your opinion of the quality of the game aside, has anyone seen/heard anything about whether Fable III will have GFWL patched out of it? I haven't been able to find anything official online. I enjoyed the original Fable as a casual action/RPG-lite, and am interested in Fable III, but only if it will still be playable without GFWL.

Bonus if it's already been eliminated...

Since GFWL is shutting down, I'd imagine it would be patched out sooner or later...

Isn't there a mod that removes GFWL from the game already?

That's usually Microsoft's answer to everything you don't like about them... :P

Except it's a Microsoft Studios game, and I have a feeling they would prefer you buy the 360 version, so I highly doubt it.

This occurred to me right after I hit post. The only GFWL game I had was Arkham City, and I imagine the demand for that will continue long after any demand for Fable III would. It was probably in their best interests to patch AC sooner rather than later.

But AC is not a Microsoft Studios game.

Uh...no, I mean an actual mod. It's out there.

This is my concern. And the closest I can find online is "it will probably be patched." No official word from MS or Lionhead. I'm interested in the game, but I'm not buying a 360, and I'm not interested in throwing money at MS for a game that I soon won't be able to play.
