Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning has gotten a short delay, and will now be released for PC, Xbox One and PS4 on September 8. The remaster of the 2012 game will also be getting a brand new DLC expansion, Fatesworn, in 2021.Originally scheduled for August 18, this marks only a short delay to the remaster, which includes all the original DLC, including Teeth of Naros and Legend of Dead Kel, and will have “improved graphical fidelity.”
Besides a new trailer (below), publisher THQ Nordic hasn’t offered any details on the new Fatesworn expansion, only promising that details will come at a later date. However, a tagline – “What does the future hold for the Fateless One?” – suggests that the new content could be set after the events of the main game.
THQ Nordic has also announced a Fate Edition of the game, which will offer Fatesworn as part of a bundle with the main game, and a Collector’s Edition, which includes a figuring, keychain, artwork, soundtrack, and collector’s box.
It’s a major turnaround for Amalur’s fortunes. The game originally reviewed well, but dveeloper 38 Studios went out of business shortly after release, and founder Curt Schilling was even (unsuccessfully) sued by the state of Rhode Island. At the time, the company wanted to make an Amalur MMO, among other projects. THQ Nordic bought the rights to the game in 2018.
