Microsoft have now announced Fable III’s first piece of DLC, the Understone Quest Pack to be released on November 23rd and will cost 400 MSP.
The content will include 3 new quests and will take you under the streets of Bowerstone to a subterranean town crafted by the eccentric Montague Humes. As added bonuses you can explore the Mercenary Shooting Range and the Wheel of Misfortune for chances to win in-game prizes.
Here are the 3 quests:

In the constant battle between publishers and the used game business many companies have been trying good and valid things to make sure they get their money. Microsoft and Lionhead are packing in a small DLC code with new copies of the game that provides you with a few potions such as the Raise Dead and Slow Time potions, a Scot outfit for Males and Females, and a Red Setter skin for your dog. Some of these items are still available to get in the game, but the code will get you them earlier and without all that silly playing the game.
There have been many attempts to foil used game sales and this one has the most in common with the codes packed into Fallout New Vegas which gives a few items such a cantine that slowly regenerates health.
EA launched Project 10 dollars based upon the fact that recent games sold used are usually discounted at about 10 dollars at Gamestop. Some examples of this are the online code being included with many of EA’s big online releases and the other free DLC packs such as the Cerberus network for Mass Effect 2.
Fable III is the third game in Peter Molyneux’s epic RPG series which while it originally aimed to make your impact on the world feel real has recently been focused on focusing the action RPG experience into a more friendly game. The additions to the fighting in the game are mainly focused on the spell system. They have introduced that you can cast the strongest variant of any spell you get as soon as you get it, however it get faster as you level them. There is also the spellweaving system which allows you to combine spells by wearing two spell gauntlets at once. Finally they have the morphing weapon system which changes depending on the way you play changing the usually excepted loot mechanic present in RPG’s. Fable II should be dropping into your lap around October 26th of 2010.
There are also some screenshots after the jump.

In case the accidental leak didn’t make it obvious, Fable III is officially heading to PC now. On the nice side, it will be priced at $49.99/£39.99/€54.99. That makes it a good bit cheaper then the standard console counterpart which is at $59.99/£44.99/€64.99.
On the downside though, PC owners won’t have access to the fancy collectors edition Xbox 360 owners will be able to get their hands on. The collectors edition includes Fable III playing cards and a Guild Seal coin. You also get yourself a nice fancy set of DLC including a new quest, an exclusive region for treasure hunting and raising a family, a new dog breed, and a special costume.
All of this comes in a fancy box mimicing the look of a book. It will be available for $79.99/£59.99/€84.99.
You can find a picture of the set after the jump.

Fable II never made it to the PC, but what about Fable III? According to the box art, it is. On the Xbox 360 label on top of the box art released by Lion Head Studios, an “Only on Xbox 360 & Windows” logo is slapped on top.
When questioned by CVG, Microsoft Studios simply replied, “We’ve made no official announcements but please stay tuned.”
Unless it was a simple mistake, I’m going to say that is coming to PC. You can check out the full box art after the jump.

I usually don’t say much about graphics, but Fable III’s environments look very nice. You can find a handful of character models in the screens too, but they don’t look as good as the environments themselves in my opinion.
If you missed it, at X10 there was some footage of Fable III shown in a developer diary.
