Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning originally released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC back in 2012 and has amassed a pretty sizeable cult following since then. It didn’t look good for the franchise though, as developer 38 Studios went bankrupt a few short months after the game’s launch.
There’s a happy ending to this story though, as THQ Nordic purchased the rights to the IP and set out to release a remaster of the game on current systems. The…interestingly titled Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning has now been given a release date alongside a snazzy new trailer. The game will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 8, 2020.
That’s not all though, THQ Nordic also announced that Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will be receiving a new expansion titled Fatesworn in 2021. No further details have been given, but the fact alone that a singleplayer game is getting an expansion nine years after its initial release is pretty crazy.
A number of editions are also available, including the Fate Edition that includes the game and the upcoming Fatesworn expansion, and the Collector’s Edition that includes the following:
- A highly-detailedAlyn Shir Figurine
- A custom Amalur keychain
- Five pieces of original in-game artwork
- The award-winning game soundtrack composed by Grant Kirkhope
- A high-quality Collector’s Box
