It will not be long until Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning's release on February 7, but fans will get a chance to try the game for themselves sooner than that. The game's Xbox 360 demo will be released on Xbox LIVE on January 17. There is no clear date for demos of its PlayStation 3 and PC versions, but the game's developers have confirmed via Twitter that a demo will be available on each of the game's platforms.
In addition to the demo news, Reckoning's developers have released another video in their "A Hero's Guide to Amalur" series. This one focuses on many of the skills the player's character will be able to use outside of combat, including both item crafting skills like Alchemy and more social skills like Persuasion.
