The Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning remaster has arrived

If you're in the market for a new hack and slash RPG adventure, you're in the wrong place, because Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-reckoning is technically an old hack and slash RPG adventure. The remaster of the 2012 game came out today, bringing slightly nicer graphics and gameplay to an old fan favourite. There's a cheeky 50% discount on Steam right now too, if you already…

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning looks a lot like Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning

Seeing as not many people played Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning in the first place, let's just pretend that the impending remaster is a brand new game. Forget that it came out in 2012. Forget that it flopped. Forget that it took its creators down with it. Forget that this all made a disappointed John Walker shout "Why didn't everyone play Kingdoms Of Amalur?!" Breathe in,…

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.

Feature: Smashing stuff!

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…

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…
