Fable: The Journey demo now available on Xbox Live

Fable: The Journey demo now available on Xbox Live

Do you want an early peek at the next big Fable game? Then, pop onto Xbox Live Marketplace and download the demo for Fable: The Journey. Do note: you will need an Xbox Live Gold account and a Kinect sensor.

Why, you ask? In case you haven't been following our coverage, The Journey is a Kinect-exclusive entry into the Fable franchise. While sitting down, you'll be able to swing your arms wildly to conjure and aim spells, and even go first-person horseback riding. I rather liked it at E3, so why not give it a try?

QUICKTAKE: Lionhead Studios promises it "hasn't f---ed up" the Fable franchise with The Journey, a Kinect-exclusive on-rails adventure. In fact, because you move through the world so quickly, it is being called the biggest Fable game ever, featuring the largest game world and soundtrack in the franchise's history. The Kinect controls take some getting used to, but when it works, it does feel like magic.

THE DEMO: I got hands-on (off?) demo with a 15 minute taste of the various gameplay mechanics featured in The Journey, from horseback riding and casting magic to a boss battle.
