Lionhead Studios released the much-awaited PC version of Fable III on Tuesday, which is the third in the Fable series of action role-playing game. The game has been published by Microsoft Game Studios for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 platforms. The PC version, for the first time, will come with a Hardcore mode and 3D functionality which is not found in the Xbox 360 version.
The game, designed by Peter Molyneux and Josh Atkins, will center around the player’s attempt to overthrow the king of Albion by creating alliances and forming support for a revolution. If the revolt is successful, the player becomes the king and has an option to lead the country in whichever way he wants.
Traditional Fable concepts like morphing, where the player's weapon changes depending on the scenario, will be upgraded. Through every mission the player’s weapons will also level, making it sharper and more lethal. “Extreme Emote”, where the hero can show his true nature by sprouting angelic or demonic wings out of his back, has also been updated.
Fable III comes with different downloadable content which will range from dyes to extra hairstyles. The player will require paying separately to unlock them in the game.
The game has received positive ranking. GameRankings designated a score of 80.49 per cent, while IGN gave it an 8.5/10. Fable III was initially criticized because of its slow start, lack of originality and glitches.
Lionhead, in a statement, announced that it is working on patches to fix these problems. The PC version of the game will cost $49.99.
