The free download is 1.22 GB big and is exclusively available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

“Built from the ground up for Kinect for Xbox 360, Fable: The Journey is a whole new way to experience the deep storyline, heart-pounding action, and picturesque world of Albion that fans have come to know and love in the beloved Fable franchise,” reads the title holder.

Fable: The Journey will release in October, exclusive to the Xbox 360, and is said to optimize Kinect.
