Hopefully a game that takes advantage of Quantum physics aswell!
Havok announced that Lionhead Studios has licensed physics and animation solution Havok Complete for use in Fable 2.
Says Molyneux “Using Havok’s technology means that we don’t have to worry about finding an efficient way to do all the complex physics calculations ourselves that are required to create a huge, vibrant, real time and persistent virtual world such as the one we’re creating for Fable 2. By using Havok, we bypass a lot of the heavy physics maths and concentrate our teams more on the creative and innovative elements of the game."

If the game doesn't need to load when equiping a shovel then its already better then the original...

I don't remember the original having long load times... then again, I played it on my friends hacked Xbox, and he was loading it off the hard drive...so yeah...

Still, any game where I can run up to a family, slaughter the father, watch the women and children run inside and lock the door, then cry and scream as I run around the perimeter smashing in all the windows before finally breaking through the door and slaughtering them is a good thing.

I must have wiped out my home town at least 3 times so I could buy up, and rent out, all the buildings.

Never said anything about the load times lenght... there just were alot of load scenes... like one that would happen after equiping the shovel...
