Kingdoms Of Amalur will get a new expansion after its re-release

THQ Nordic today announced a release date of September 8th for Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, their re-release of the 2012 RPG, plus a little surprise. They've revealed plans for a brand new Amalur expansion due in 2021, though all we know for now is its name: Fatesworn. The re-release doesn't seem drastically different but if it leads to newness, that sounds grand.

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, the MMO for misanthropes, barely needs updating at all

I have long described Kingdoms Of Amular: Reckoning as one of my favourite games. It has also been a long time since I checked. And as you can see, despite its status in my gaming life, I still can't spell its name correctly. AmAlUr. Am-ah-lure.With the very welcome recent announcement that its most recent owners, THQ Nordic, are remastering it, I thought I'd return to…

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning is getting a remaster this year

It seems a listing on the Microsoft Store went up a little earlier than intended yesterday, as it's revealed that a remaster of Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning is on the way. The hack and slash RPG originally came out in 2012, and despite having a pretty adoring fanbase, it didn't quite reach the level of success players thought it would. Perhaps it'll do a little…

THQ Nordic’s parent company apologises for disastrous 8chan AMA

If you believe (incorrectly) that there's no such thing as bad publicity, you may be impressed that people are still talking about publisher THQ Nordic GmbH. Their 'Ask Me Anything' Q&A session on 8chan - an infamous image-board permanently delisted from Google for hosting suspected child porn - got people chattering. Unfortunately it's the kind of chatter that has brought parent company THQ Nordic AB…

THQ Nordic held a Q&A with 8chan, a website de-listed from Google for hosting suspected child porn

"We're doing an 8chan AMA and we have no idea why," announced THQ Nordic on their Twitter account earlier this evening. If you're not aware, 8chan is an imageboard website which has been de-listed from Google search results for hosting "suspected child abuse content," and which is associated with Swatting and Gamergate.THQ Nordic's marketing director has since apologised and claimed ignorance, but both are hard…

Kingdoms Of Amalur’s escape from limbo with THQ Nordic may require EA’s blessing

The cruel legal realities of this world threaten once more to crush John's gentle heart. Despite reports last week that THQ Nordic had snapped up the intellectual property rights to his much-loved Kingdoms Of Amalur from defunct developers 38 Studios, those wanting to play a re-launch shouldn't hold their breath.Any remaster or re-release of Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning will likely need authorisation from EA, who…

Have You Played… Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.Few better games have been given a tougher break than Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning [official site]. A truly wonderful epic, bright, and action-led RPG, it was screwed from every direction. It deserves your attention still.

Nobody Wants Poor Old Kingdoms Of Amalur – Sniff

This is too sad. Kingdoms Of Amalur, the basis for one of the best RPGs in years, has failed to sell in 38 Studios' assets auction. As reported by Polygon, no one was prepared to put up what current owners Heritage Global Partners were willing to take, despite another $320,000 being raised for other sales, including the Rise Of titles. But poor old Amalur remains…

Why Didn’t Everyone Play Kingdoms Of Amalur?!

There's a game you probably didn't play. It came out last year, it's a genuine epic, a vast, elaborate RPG with a sprawling story and vast numbers of sidequests. It features superbly in-depth combat, has huge variety in character design and levelling, and lets you instantly wander from the main plot and explore its enormous world to your own entertainment. It's Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning.

Things You Will Not Get: Amalur Patch, Reckoning 2

The saga of 38 Studios continues to be an eternally springing font of sad. A wrenching 379 layoffs are, of course, the centerpiece of this Shakespearean tragedy, but further fallout has revealed incredibly sketchy mortgage practices for relocated employees, and now, Joystiq's reporting that Reckoning 2 was in pre-production before Curt Schilling's money Titanic collided with an iceberg that was also the apocalypse. And, to make…

Saving Throw: Amalur Dev Pays Gov, Pegs MMO For 2013

Generally, the weekend is life's pause button. But occasionally, things happen. Strange things. Vile things. Things involving incessant backstabbery and good people falling on impossibly hard times. Oh, wait, I'm just describing yesterday's Game of Thrones (wasn't it great?). No, no, the real world weekend actually yielded a bloom-lit bounty of good news. In short, Kingdoms of Amalur developer 38 Studios (and subsidiary Big Huge…

Bottom Of The Ninth: 38 Can’t Pay State Or Employees

When we last glanced in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning developer 38 Studios' direction, trouble was afoot - but it was tiptoeing, perhaps while disguised as some form of shrubbery. Now, though, things have taken a whiplash-inducing turn for the worst. In short, Joystiq reports that former baseball star Curt Schilling's unlikely venture has borrowed a total of $75 million from the state of Rhode Island…

Time For A Reckoning: 38 Studios In Trouble?

Kingdoms of Amalur creators 38 Studios, who are based in Providence, Rhode Island, are apparently in talks with that state about their financial difficulties, as reported by this Providence newspaper. Superbly-named governor Lincoln Chafee said: "We're always working to keep Rhode Island companies solvent, and that's what we're doing with 38 Studios."Reportedly, the game sold 410,000 copies across all formats - a figure which cast…

Amalur’s Next DLC “Magically Floats In The Sky”

Well, in the game, at least. The latest add-on for Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning will invite you to "Explore the city of Idylla, which magically floats in the sky above the Teeth of Naros." What are those things? Well, one is a city that magically floats in the sky, and has twenty new quests in it, and the teeth are "a forgotten land" which apparently…

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning review

Having poured many fevered hours into the release version of Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning I can now ask you not to judge it entirely on its weak, wonky demo. Have a read of my review, and then mix the two experiences together to create a potion of critical insight +3. Here's wot I think.

Kingdoms of Amalur’s Fantasy World Tour

We've already had a taste of Kingdoms' blank stares and fighting-game type combat in the demo, but a new trailer shows much more of the world, and rather fancy it looks, too. It shows how the stories are told, as well as showing off some of the more impressive locations. There's some emphasis on the side-quests, and it promises "secrets" scattered across the landscape, presumably…
