In 2009, Lionhead Studios, developer of Fable and Fable II, announced that they were planning on continuing the Fable series with Fable III. The game is currently available in North America and Europe. Unlike Fable II, it was also released on the PC in May 2011. The PC version comes with the Limited Collector's Edition content included for free, but Understone Quest Pack and Traitor's Keep must be paid for and downloaded separately using Games for Windows LIVE. It is also the first game in the series where The Hero is shown to talk in full sentences.
Set 50 years after the events of Fable II, the continent of Albion (where the Fable series is set) is under the control of Logan, a tyrant king and the Hero's older brother. The player's character, the "Hero", is forced into a quest to become a revolutionary leader to defeat Logan after he reveals his true personality to the Hero. Over the course of the first half of the game, the Hero will overthrow Logan and become ruler of Albion themselves. During the second half of the game, a strange force from Aurora, called The Darkness will threaten Albion and the player has to decide how to react to it.
