Look, no one is going to enjoy tomorrow's Knothole harvest if it's infested with bugs. So, Lionhead has dusted the crops, so to speak, and removed those icky pests from Fable 2 (read: automatic title update released). While the seeds were planted back in October, and some in-house sampling has been going on for the past month, it's only now that we all can enjoy the fruits of Lionhead's labour:

Title update patch notes
  • The Ritual/Monk's Quest -- "fixed the issue with the Abbott becoming unresponsive if you leave Oakfield before he finishes talking. This will fix the problem if you've already hit it, too."
  • Rescuing Charlie/Rescue My Baby -- "after rescuing Charlie, you can now interact with objects."
  • Guild Cave chest -- "resolves any issues with previous inability to retrieve items unlocked from Limited Collector's Edition, website or Chicken Kickin' game. If you've already hit this bug you should now get your items."
  • The Spire (Part 2) -- "no more issues with ship captain being unresponsive."
  • The Hero of Skill (Pirate King) -- "you'll no longer get stuck during Hero of Skill quest."
  • T.O.B.Y./Trouble In Bloodstone -- "you'll no longer get stuck during T.O.B.Y. quests."
  • Your child "will no longer be chosen as an assassination target."
  • Furniture Shop in Albion (Bowerstone) "will now always have something for sale."
  • Additional unspecified fixes
In addition, the "Tales of Albion" companion site has been updated with Knothole lore.
