Fable II Episode I, the first of five, is now available for free on Live.
This is the full game broken out into parts. The first bit costs you nothing: the other four parts will be charged.
Still. Free Fable II. Get it for a measly 2Gb.
The game’s episodic release was announced at GamesCom in August.

Speaking at the Piper Jaffray consumer conference in New York yesterday, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick admitted that the company is actively pursuing interests in episodic content, saying the model takes a lot of the risk out of retail.
“If we can get a good model for episodic content for high quality titles, that should be a pretty profitable business because there are no hard goods associated with it,” he said.
The company head also talked about micro-transactions at the event, saying that allowing players to “change the way characters look, [add] weapons, cars and the like” is a valid way forward and that he has an aim at the moment to “turn packaged goods partially into a subscription business, and drive some of the volatility out.”
