For the longest time, the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo has kept gamers wanting an exclusive forum dedicated to PC gaming on the outside looking in, as the conference has ultimately become more driven toward the most recent offerings for consoles. However, the organizers behind E3 2015 has taken heed of such players’ desires and has allowed the editors at PC Gamer to host their own PC Gaming Show presented by AMD and sponsored by Blizzard Entertainment. Luckily, the first-annual PC Gaming Show has been chock full of excellent titles and hardware that’s infinitely more powerful than that of the Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One including games like Killing Floor 2 and Valkyrie.
Even so, Xbox head Phil Spencer has seemed determined to turn Microsoft into the main attraction at E3 2015. Instead of being content with his own press conference, Spencer has also made an appearance at the PC Gaming Show to discuss particulars involving Xbox One games streaming on PCs with Windows 10, and reveal details regarding the PC ports for Killer Instinct, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, and Fable Legends. In fact, David Eckelberry, the game director for Fable Legends, followed the Xbox boss and has shown off a new trailer for the PC version of the game.
While we’ve seen the Fable Legends trailer for Xbox One made public yesterday, the PC trailer for the game looks gorgeous. Throughout the footage, a team of heroes hack and slash through enchanted forests with smooth textures and mountainous regions supported by a high performance frame rate not readily available on next-gen consoles.
Eckelberry is even given a little bit more room to discuss the reasons behind the game’s PC port, saying, “[The] real goal is to deliver this game to as many of you as possible.” He even touches on the added bonuses of playing Fable Legends on PC by saying, “You can plug in an Xbox One controller, or use a keyboard and mouse. Whatever you want.”
After Lionhead Studios launches Fable Legends from beta later this year, should fans of Peter Molyneux’s franchise remain loyal to their Xbox One, players can still connect with their computer gaming friends over console and PC cross-platform play. But no matter what platform gamers wish to use to explore the fantastical land of Albion, the franchise certainly appears ready to take its next step forward with Fable Legends.
Fable Legends will release for PC and Xbox One during the holiday season of 2015.
