In 2012 we reviewed Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
scoring it a respectable 8.7 - citing its engaging combat and epic length as mystical feathers in its +8 INT RPG cap. With design input from comic legend Todd McFarlane and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
lead Ken Rolston it was also meant to be the first entry in a wider Amalur-verse.
Until the studio behind the game, 38 Studios, went bankrupt before its release. Thanks to a new Microsoft Store listing
we now know that a remaster from THQ Nordic is coming very soon - with the title Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning
. As per the description it promises to bring updates to both the visuals and gameplay - "Remastered with stunning visuals and refined gameplay Re-Reckoning delivers intense, customizable RPG combat inside a sprawling game world."
Here are a few screens from the listing.
And with THQ Nordic at the helm, and the studio behind the Darksiders remaster giving the Kingdoms of Amalur a 2020 sheen, there might also be plans in place to create something new for the franchise in the future.
