Albion is the oldest known name for the island of Great Britain, so these screenshots of Fable III released today for GamesCom in Cologne, Germany, hit a little closer to home than usual.

Of course developer Lionhead is located in Guildford, which is actually on the aforementioned island, so that opening bit was little more than an excuse to point out the whole Albion thing, and show you some pretty pictures. If you want something a bit more substantial, look for McWhertor's hands-on impressions as GamesCom continues!
