Video game magpie THQ Nordic has announced that Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will be released in September 2020.
The remaster of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will hit PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 8, and is available to pre-order now.
The updated version of the game includes enhanced visuals and refined gameplay. THQ Nordic has also confirmed that the game will be receiving some brand new content with an expansion titled Fatesworn coming in 2021.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a notorious RPG first released in 2012 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game was well-received by players and critics and also sold reasonably well.
The talent behind the game is also undeniable, with contributions from author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn‘s Todd McFarlane, Elder Scrolls designer Ken Rolston, and composer Grant Kirkhope.
Unfortunately, its production troubles – which involve former baseball pitcher Curt Schilling and $75 million in government bonds – overshadowed the quality of the game and a planned sequel never arrived.
The standard edition of Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is priced at €39.99/$39.99/£34.99. The Re-Reckoning Fate Edition – which includes the Fatesworn expansion – is priced at €54.99/$54.99/£47.99. And, naturally, there’s also a limited run collector’s edition. Here’s what $109.99/€109.99/£99.99 will get you.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Collector’s Edition contents
- Alyn Shir Figurine measuring 20.8cm x 18cm x 14.2cm
- A custom Amalur keychain
- Five pieces of original in-game artwork
- The award-winning game soundtrack composed by Grant Kirkhope
