Fable Anniversary hits Steam in September

Fable Anniversary will arrive on Steam in September, according to a coded message left in a teaser trailer.

Lionhead officially confirmed that the game was headed to PC in a blog post Thursday, noting that the release date was left somewhere in the video. A binary message which appears about 28 seconds into the video spells out "September" when translated.

Near the end of the teaser, a Steam-styled notification pops up for the game, indicating that it will release on Valve's digital platform. Microsoft has promised to "renew its focus on PC gaming" in recent months.

Fable Anniversary is an enhanced remake of the first Fable game, which featured new Achievements, leaderboards, an updated save system, and full 1080p visuals with lighting and animation powered by Unreal Engine 3. It released on Xbox 360 in February 2014.

In our Fable Anniversary review, we said: "Stunted, bitty world design and cut and paste quests drain the colour from one of gaming's most vivid worlds. Dig out the sequels instead."
