Lionhead Studios hopes that Fable 3 will play like it has been built for PC

By on April 14, 2011

When Lionhead Studios announced that their third part of the Fable franchise would be released for the PC, we were quite excited. It turned out though that PC gamers had to wait some extra months before they could get their hands on this new RPG. Which is kind of typical, as most of X360’s are delayed about six-ten months. However, Lionhead Studios wants to deliver something more than a standard console port.

“Our hope is that people who pick up on PC think ‘okay, this plays how I would expect it to play, it doesn’t play like just a half-done port’, which I think is the danger for PC games.” said lead designer, Josh Atkins, to RockPaperShotgun.

“Not to knock anyone else, but people tend to just rush games out onto the PC, they do the very quickest port they can and they try to do it as a financial model rather than let’s try to make something that at least plays like it was designed for this platform, and respects what the platform does.”

He also added: “With Fable III on PC, we wanted it to feel like it was respectful of the platform, that it had been built for it.”

Will Lionhead deliver and will PC gamers show their appreciation? Or will they choose to support CD Projekt RED’s much anticipated RPG, The Witcher 2, that comes out on the same day? Only time will tell.
