Probably the worst kept secret in games isn’t even pretending any more: Fable III was just confirmed for PC.

Lionhead announced the news today on its website.

The game will be available in Standard and Limited Collector’s Editions 360. The Standard Edition will retail for $59.99/£44.99/€64.99, while the Limited Collector’s Edition will retail for $79.99/£59.99/€84.99.

The PC SKU version will retail for $49.99/£39.99/€54.99, and will also be available for download exclusively on Games on Demand on Games for Windows – LIVE.

The CE includes, according to the PR:

  • A new quest: Uncover the mystery of the haunted forests of Silverpines and earn the legendary sword, Wolfsbane, deadly against wolves and balverines.
  • Exclusive location: Unlock a new region, ideal for settling down with a family and discovering new treasures.
  • “Fable III” playing cards: Created by Lionhead, these cards depict every type of character in “Fable III,” including Heroes, royals, rebels and villains from across Albion and beyond.
  • Guild Seal Coin: The coin features a Good side (blue) and Evil side (red) to assist players in making critical decisions that will impact the fate of the world forever.
  • A new dog breed: Renowned for its loyalty, the Boxer is a brave canine companion worthy of greatest Queens and Kings.
  • One unique outfit: Unearth one male and female outfit from the mysterious, faraway land of Aurora, a new destination in your “Fable III” adventures.

No specific date yet. It’s out before the end of the year.

    Wow… I won’t buy this on PC. Thank you. Unless they are going to drop the price.

    39.99 for PC title is too much.

    If Steam sells it and does one of their 75% off jobies I will buy it. If not, nope. Not on PC or xb360. Just not enough fun to keep me interested.

    Edit: No, wait – it’s not a fiver more, it’s a fiver less than the usual RRP. RRP of standard editions is now £49.99, is it not?

    OlderGamer, I doubt Steam will sell this game, as it’s part of Games for Windows Live initiative.

    Isn’t anyone forgetting something?

    How the fuck does Fable II fit into all this for PC?

    Yeah, £49.99 is normal for RRP, retailers usually lower it to £39.99.

    Maybe they’ll rush a quick and dirty Fable 2 port out before 3 hits? Or maybe they’ll just have a ‘previously on Fable’ video intro? :-D

    “Well…………I guess NATAL can’t have THAT much to do with Fable 3 (as Peter was talking about) afterall if it’s going to PC”

    I think they want to push Natal to PC too.

    Well…………I guess NATAL can’t have THAT much to do with Fable 3 (as Peter was talking about) afterall if it’s going to PC.

    They’ve always said that the Natal bits of Fable 3 are optional, even on the 360.

    I do wonder why Microsoft release thier exclusives on the Pc, it cuts into the 360 sales.

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    Oh ok. To me it came accross as being described like some revolutionary mind blowing industry changing interaction, which almost implies mandatory rather than optional, but cool nonetheless.

    lol, look at that retard justifying its newly fable 3 purchase. If they cancel it now for any other reason, look at him going back to trolling it.

    @17 Fable games sell very good no matter what and Windows is still first Microsoft’s priority because
    Valve started to work on MAC and it’s a Microsoft response to it.

    What the fuck is up with this GFWL bullshit, no one wants to deal with that mess, bring it to steam if you want my money.

    Its a first party game of course its going to be GFWL.

    @Joe_Gamer
    I think the purchase mechanism on GfWL is pretty standard. You pay in real money (no MS Points), download the installer and install where ever you like (define in Settings). Then you can add the game in your Steam Library if you like and it’s going to play just fine. Sure, the possible online component is Live only, but Fable hardly is an online-focused game. I’m a big fan of Steam, too, but I got Arkham Asylum from GfWL when it was on sale. Never had any problems with it.

    Erm… they have!

    Fable 1 on the Xbox sold over 2.5 million and Fable 2 on the 360 sold over 3.5 million. That’s a ton of Fable sold so far :P
