Havok announced today that Molyneux and company have licensed Havok Complete for Fable 2
. 'Complete' rolls Havok Physics and Havok Animation into one integrated package.
As Molyneux iterated, relying on Havok allows Lionhead developers to focus on the team's lofty aspirations, most-simply defined as dynamic regions, unconditional love, wealth accumulation, constrained combat, and an as of yet undisclosed uber-feature. As with the original Fable
, at this stage it's hard to distinguish fantasy from reality (what gameplay elements will and won't make it into Fable 2's
final release). But there is now at least one certainty: ragdolls.
