Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Slated For September Release
The existence of the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning remaster was leaked a while back, but that just makes the official news that it’ll hit this September, with the title tweaked to ‘Re-Reckoning’, all the sweeter.
Amalur was an underappreciated gem in the Xbox 360/PS3 era, the launch of an RPG franchise with big plans that was ultimately submarined by utterly clueless management. Fortunately for RPG fans, THQ Nordic swept up the license and not only will they be releasing the remaster, but there’s an all-new expansion slated for 2021 as well!
Check out the trailer, unfortunately not in-game but once it’s got you pumped up for release check out the screenshot gallery to see what it’ll look like!
