Despite what you learn in Fable 3, not everyone gets to be king. When it comes to PC gaming digital distribution platforms, there's only one king and its name is Steam ("Your Highness" will suffice). Microsoft, also known as the lowly Duke of Games for Windows, has finally seen fit to recognize Steam's monarchy and, as a form of tribute, will be offering its own Fable 3 on the reigning platform as well as its own.

But nothing is ever that simple in court politics! While both digital releases, as well as the retail version, will be simultaneous, only Games for Windows Marketplace shoppers will be treated to a free copy of Fable: Lost Chapters, the expanded update of the original Fable. Steam shoppers will get the far less desirable Rebel's Weapon & Tattoo Pack, featuring some, uh ... weapons and tattoos for your hero. Retail shoppers get the security of a box and a disc, so that's something.

Fable 3 is due on PCs on May 17 in North America and shortly thereafter elsewhere.

Fable III for Windows to be available via Steam at Launch

Choice has always played an important role in the world of "Fable," and PC fans will have even more choices than ever, without the consequence. Microsoft Game Studios and Lionhead are happy to announce that "Fable III" for Windows will be available through Valve Corporation's Steam distribution platform, in addition to Games for Windows Marketplace and in retail stores simultaneously.

"Fable III" will be available for pre-order on both Steam and Games for Windows Marketplace starting 21 April. Fans who pre-order through Games for Windows Marketplace will receive "Fable: Lost Chapters" – the start of the Fable saga - for free! And those who purchase on Steam will receive the Rebel's Weapon & Tattoo Pack, a collection of four exclusive weapons and five exclusive tattoo sets to customize their rebel hero.

Fans can also purchase the game in all three locations at launch on 20 May for £34.99 (ERP).

No matter how players decide to purchase "Fable III," they will have access to the same exciting content as Xbox 360 players, including riveting Game Add-ons like Traitor's Keep, in addition to new features like a more challenging "Hardcore" mode and 3-D functionality.

Happy ruling!
