Fable 3 for PC just came out this week, and I got the game but I am too lazy to reinstall windows, so I am just wondering if is possible to play Fable 3 through wine in Ubuntu?

by the way, My Ubuntu is 11.04 and Wine Version is 1.2.2

I try the playonlinux method but it give me a error code – Julio Ale Tain Jun 4 '11 at 20:39
I was having with setup.exe, but then just for the sake of trying,I try changing the game.msi as executable and it did run the installer – Julio Ale Tain Jun 4 '11 at 20:58
I am trouble with running it, it keep having error with F3Secu.exe – Julio Ale Tain Jun 4 '11 at 21:49

The only way to be certain it works is to try. On some computers it will, on other it might not work.

Have you tried PlayOnLinux? Fable 3 was recently released for MS Windows not many days ago, so it might be too "fresh" for PlayOnLinux.
