Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Coming This Summer
THQ Nordic has confirmed that it will be releasing a remaster of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning following a leak for the game. The remaster will be released under the title Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning for PC and consoles this summer and includes gameplay refinement and all of the original DLC. A number of outlets have indicated a release date of August 18, 2020, but this has not been confirmed by THQ Nordic.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a single-player fantasy action RPG developed by Big Huge Games and 38 Studios and published by EA. The game was released for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2012. Reckoning was created as part of the work for the MMORPG known as Project Copernicus, featuring a setting and history designed by author R. A. Salvatore. The MMORPG was cancelled when 38 Studios declared bankruptcy in May 2012, with THQ Nordic acquiring the IP in 2018. Those looking to read more about the game can check out Michael A.
