Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning


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.

Reckoning combines visceral third person action combat with deep exploration, expansive character development, and immersive storytelling in a high-fantasy universe.  Gamers mysteriously rise from the dead and are thrust into a bloody conflict between multiple races, factions, and alliances as they vie for the secrets of immortality and the ancient magic that threatens to destroy the world. Amalur is a magical world, filled with strange landscapes, exotic cities, colorful characters and terrifying creatures.

Developed by Big Huge Games & 38 Studios out of Baltimore, Maryland, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will be available 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
