Fable Anniversary, Liohead's HD remake of its Xbox classic, will ship on Steam on September 12.

To mark the game's release on PC, publisher Microsoft is offering a twenty percent discount for a limited time. The regular price in North America is $35, reduced to $28 for those that preorder before the game becomes available.

In the UK the game costs £27, reduced to £21.59 for those who preorder.

Initially released on Xbox 360, Fable Anniversary is a HD remaster of the 2004 Xbox original with updated visuals and audio. It also comes with the Lost Chapters bonus content, and an extra-challenging Heroic difficulty.

GameSpot's Fable Anniversary review was generally favourable, with critic Kevin VanOrd writing: "Its combat and world design have undoubtedly aged, but the game is so ripe with charisma, so upbeat that even its most sombre moments don't suppress your soaring spirits for long."

He concluded: "Fable isn't quite timeless, but its genial mood is infectious, and I'm happy that Fable Anniversary kept my fond memories intact."
