We love when the Xbox Live Marketplace has weekly deals on co-op games because hey - who doesn't love saving a buck or four on additional content for your favorite co-op games? This week (from now until Feb. 27th), Xbox 360 owners can snag some Fable 3 DLC from 33%-45% off. This includes quest packs like Traitor's Keep (which we did an impressions piece on) and Understone. And if you've been on the fence about that dog breed DLC.... well, that's on sale, too.
We've updated our Fable 3 review to include impressions and details about the recently released PC version of the game. Ready to head back into Albion? Read on!
Everyone knows that game show Let's Make a Deal, right? Remember how there are three doors for contestants to choose from, with prizes that range from a new car to a wheelbarrow full of dirt? Well, the PC release of Fable III is going to be like that in a way. But no matter which door you choose, the same Fable III goodness is your prize.
You may have heard that Fable 3 is finally coming to PC on May 17th. You may have also heard that the game will have a hardcore mode, along with local and online co-op. In a recent interview with CVG.com Lionhead Studios Josh Atkins said that some of the exclusive PC content of Fable 3 may make their way to the Xbox 360 version. When asked if features like the hardcore difficulty level and the first person perspective could come to the 360, Atkins said;
The latest thing to come about for the co-op-eriffic Fable 3 is a handful of DLC. We've seen dog skins, weapon packs, new locations, and a bit more storyline to supplement the royal storyline for Fable 3. Traitor's Keep is one of those storyline packs that gives you a taste of life beyond the mainland. Life in a giant island prison facility called Ravenscar Keep, and boy is it the very definition of "Oops."
Have you been waiting for the price to drop on a ticket to Albion? Were you waiting for Fable 4 to come out, just so Fable 3 would become more affordable? Amazon has a more timely solution for you. Today and today only Fable 3 is 53% off. You can pick it up for a pittance of $28.06. To sweeten the deal you can pick yourself up an Xbox LIVE 12 Month Gold membership for $39.99. That's 33% off the price a regular Joe would pay. You're not a regular Joe, are you? Heck no! You're a beautiful individual snowflake, and you deserve to be treated that way! You work hard for the money, and we want to treat you right.
We've got a few tidbits of Fable 3 info today - both items I'm pretty shocked we haven't seen sooner.
As gamers we sure seem to know what we want after a game has been chewed and digested in our game systems, don’t we? It doesn’t happen often, but in the case of the upcoming fantasy sequel Fable 4 we get to drop our opinionated two cents in ahead of time, by rating the series it belongs to. In the hopes of having the best possible community pleasing game, Lionhead Studios has released a brief survey that wants to know what they did right for Fable 3 - including the use of co-op, to possibly carry on to a sequel.
Did someone cast a darkness spell on the release date for the PC version of Fable 3? We’ve seen, beaten, and are just waiting for some DLC on the console Xbox 360 version, but still no word for PC gamers. CES did offer us a bit of light on the game, as it was available for previewing at the Microsoft booth just last week. Hopefully that means they’re just about ready to give up the goods and release for PC already.
I was playing the new Superhero Squad game with my son last night, and noticed that there was already DLC available for the relatively new release. Said DLC consisted of a trio of playable characters: Captain America, Bucky, and the Red Skull. My initial reactions were "What? No Cap in the main game? Outrageous!" followed by "240 MS points for that? A dollar a character? Seems pretty steep for a kiddie game to me."
Sadly, I still haven't encountered kamikaze children - yet.
The fix is in for Fable III. Hot on the heels of today's release of the 'Understone Quest Pack' DLC, Lionhead studios has announced an upcoming title update that will resolve some annoying issues, including some corrupted game saves. The patch will cover:
The PC version of Fable 3 was originally supposed to launch alongside the 360 version - but was subsequently delayed. We were given a time frame of soon, that is, soon relative to the 360 release - but we're pretty sure the statute of limitations on that one have passed. Especially consider the 360 version is getting its first bit of DLC next week.
There's more adventure coming to the land of Albion. Fable III is getting additional content next week, including accessories and all new quests. Heroes of Albion have already seen a few items show up in the Sanctuary, including new outfits, tattoos, and even a new canine. The Understone Quest pack will add more than mere aesthetics to the game.
It's time again for another Xbox Live Co-Op Night. This month's featured game is the recently released Fable 3! We'll be headed into the world of Albion for some good old fashioned questing, slaying, loot collecting, and sexing...yes sexing. After all - love and marriage is a big part of Fable 3.
