Get ready to discover the secrets of Amalur. Electronic Arts Inc. and 38 Studios, LLC have announced that the action RPG, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, will launch in North America on February 7, 2012.
Reckoning is an epic single-player game — and the first chapter of a vast new fantasy universe — that sends players on a fast-paced journey to unlock the mysteries of Amalur while redefining their heroâ€™s destiny and the fate of the world.
With more than 10 award nominations at its Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) debut in June 2011, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has captured the imagination of gamers worldwide, with GameSpot.com saying; â€œthere’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, especially when there’s an impressive amount of talent behind the project.”
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an epic, open-world role-playing game set in Amalur, a mysterious and magical new fantasy world created by New York Times best-selling author R. A. Salvatore. Brought to life visually through the trademark visceral style of renowned artist and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, Reckoning brings a new level of intense action combat to the RPG genre.
The game is being developed under the leadership of Ken Rolston, lead designer of the critically acclaimed RPGs Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
