Xbox Live mouthpiece and all-around inoffensive man Major Nelson has word on the release date of the PC version of Fable 3 in his latest infodump. Americans will be getting the rebellion & kingdom management-driven third instalment of the series on May 17th. On the one hand, it’s coming to us 7 months late. On the other hand, we’ll get 3D support and a new, PC exclusive ‘Hardcore’ difficulty mode, just in case you felt like punishing yourself some more. In the same post Nelson announces the first sizeable piece of downloadable content for the game, Traitor’s Keep, which you can read all the details on below. It’s only announced for consoletoys just yet, but these packs have a habit of wandering our way eventually, like one-legged cats scrabbling their way home.
Fable III Traitor’s Keep game add-on – Available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 560 Microsoft Points on March 1, the Traitor’s Keep game add-on continues the journey as fans venture into three new levels called Ravenscar Keep, Clockwork Island, and the Godwin Estate, taking on new quests and encountering a mysterious prisoner. Traitor’s Keep also comes packed with 250 gamerscore points and additional content.
And here’s the first 15 minutes of the game, including the lovely pre-rendered intro.
