New PC Screens!

Recently added just today on the site we have a batch of screenshots of the soon-to-be PC version of Fable III. See below for all the awesome in-game shots and the beauty of a nice detailed PC game.

Some delicious morsels there indeed. More to come in the near future this beer swilling bard hopes!

PC Release Dated!

Fable III will also begin an adventure on the PC this May 17th. The story will be the same as the original from the 360 version but will also have a few nifty additions too it. The first is the advent of 3D in the game which brings a new 'dimension' to the world of Albion like you have never seen before.

As well as this the game comes with a PC exclusive Hardcore difficulty mode which is going to amp the difficulty up to 11; to use a nice British film history reference there. Players on the PC could possibly have the same access to DLC as users on the 360 have had, with the possibility of the DLC already released put into the game...but we shall see.

Traitor's Keep - New Fable III DLC?

After a few whispers on the forums of and those across the pond in America and Canada finding an odd surprise advert on their Live dashboards while they download the Dragon Age II demo...we have possible news of a new DLC pack for Fable III. Could this be it?

From the looks of it; it could be another piece of information let out a liiiitle bit before it was meant too be seen.

With news that they were 'doing something new' over the past two/three weeks we shall see how this develops.

All credit to the folks of the Lionhead Community.

More from Mort

Earlier I posted an image of Mort's Low-Rez Fable art, but now he has gone one further and given us some oldy console Fable music to listen too!

Pretty damn awesome.

...Fable from the Old Days?

Have you ever wondered what Fable would look like if it had been an 80's game? Well look no further...

It's not actually a game, but the wonderful Mort from the Lionhead Forums decided to mock up some fantastic little pixel art for the Fable series and show it off for us all to enjoy.

Click on the picture above to expand it for a proper large view of the image and enjoy what could have been a wonderful text based adventure!

What's YOUR Fable?

The Developers of the Fable series over at have come up with another nifty survey for those of us who love the Fable world, and its a chance for us to tell them what we feel are the most, and least, important factors in the Fable games we play.

Simply follow this link...
Sam's Survey!

And follow the instructions to get your voice heard about the Fable franchise. Community support is always key to getting a game just right, and Lionhead love their community more than most developers at the moment.

Let them know your thoughts.

Whispers from the Ether?

So news on Fable has been a little on the low side for the past few months, but do not despair. It isn't hard and fast Fable information but with some tweeting on twitter we may have something on the horizon for anyone wanting to be back in Albion sooner rather than later.

"Man its been so long since I captured game footage... I feel rusty. Making rookie mistakes left right and centre. Maybe up and down too..."

DanielUsher Twitter.

"Good morning tweeps, today we start recording game footage. Can't say what for yet, the overlords are reading, but you'll find out soon-ish"

SamVanTilburgh Twitter.

Just two little slithers of information from those within the walls of Castle Lionhead. This could be a new game, this could be the PC version; this could be new DLC? Soon-ish couldn't come sooner in my opinion.
