The Legend of Dead Kel, the first big DLC for swords and conversation RPG Kingdoms of Amalur is arriving tomorrow, letting you loose on the treacherous island of Gallow’s End in search of haunted pirate booty. It’s a chunk of story-driven content with a focus on player housing, featuring “the most expansive player housing option yet,” and if there’s one thing I need in my life, it’s a holiday home with options in a location that sounds like where Satan goes for the weekend.
Honestly though, the new trailer below begins with “At the edge of the frostbreak sea lies a sprawling isle of mist and stone” and crikey! It might be the dragon-obsessed teenager grabbing at my brain stem and taking control but stuff like that just does it for me. Flowery descriptions of windswept fantasy lands full of decay and adventure, that’s what it’s all about.
I don’t know if that’s Dead Kel himself at 0:50, because it sure looks a lot less like a creepy zombie pirate king and a whole lot more like some mad bloke who’s strapped a skull to his face. None of my timbers are shivering matey, I can see your goatee!
Dead Kel and his Hanged Men will be on Steam and Origin (and PSN/Xbox Live) tomorrow for $9.99.
