As it follows, the Collector’s Edition will not be featuring the  premium box, five printed fate cards, and Hobbe figure.

– Fable 2 game disc
– Bonus DVD with new ‘Making-of’ Feature
– Bonus in-game content (requires Xbox LIVE®)
– ‘The Hall of the Dead’ Dungeon

In addition, Lionhead announced that the Fate Cards will be made available as a downloadable PDF, as well as the creation a special Fable album for free download. It includes a wonderful selection of Fable 1 music and 3 brand new tracks from the upcoming Fable 2 soundtrack.
