The June 2011 launch for Dungeon Siege III is fast approaching and one of the first pre-order deals involving the dungeon-crawler has been made public. On Steam, with a full pre-purchase of the third game, you’ll receive the first two Dungeon Sieges free of charge. It's worth noting that these two games are only available on Steam as part of this reserve deal, so ponying up the dough for DS III is the only way at the moment that you can grab DS and DS II on Steam.
In the press release announcing the above information, publisher Square Enix was quick to say that DS III will launch with traditional Steamworks suite support, so expect the usual perks like cloud saving, achievements, auto-updates, and DLC hooks to be written into the software.
Dungeon Siege III is in the works at Obsidian Entertainment, the same studio that put out Fallout: New Vegas in 2010. In addition to a PC release, the game is slated to hit the PS3 and the Xbox 360 this June. No word on what kind of pre-order bonuses the console versions might end up having at traditional retailers, such as GameStop and the like, but it's hard to imagine that it'd be anything quite as cool as what Steam players are getting--probably just an in-game sword, or something. See, PC players? Some companies do still love you.
