Fable III Will be Sold on Steam, as Well as Games For Windows Marketplace

The rivalry between Microsoft’s Games For Windows Marketplace platform and Valve’s Steam service took an interesting turn with MS announcing it is to release Fable 3 over both distribution channels.

The Lionhead title will be available for pre-order on both platforms from April 21.

Perhaps predictably, there is an incentive to buy from GFWM. Those who buy from Microsoft’s service will receive ‘Fable: Lost Chapters’ – the start of the Fable saga – for free. Meanwhile, those who purchase on Steam will receive the Rebel’s Weapon & Tattoo Pack – a collection of four exclusive weapons and five exclusive tattoo sets.

A Microsoft statement released earlier adds that: “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.”
