Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning Is Getting A Re-Release This Year, First Images And Details Leaked

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the 2012 RPG from controversial former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s ill-fated development studio and published by EA, is making a comeback of sorts.

New rights-owner THQ Nordic is re-releasing the game in August with Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. German studio Kaiko is said to be handling the re-release.

The product description on states Re-Reckoning will release on August 11. All the DLC from the original game–including Teeth of Naros and Legend of Dead Kel–is included with the re-release. The game also promises “improved graphical fidelity.” You can check out a series of images in the gallery above.

The Xbox product page appears to have gone live too soon, as THQ Nordic has yet to formally announce Re-Reckoning.

In September 2018, after THQ Nordic acquired the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur, the company confirmed to Eurogamer that Electronic Arts continued to hold the publishing rights to the franchise, so a re-release would require their approval. The two companies have now seemingly worked out an arrangement.

Original developer 38 Studios went bankrupt, and the fallout caused a great deal of controversy in the developer’s home state of Rhode Island. Studio founder Curt Schilling now works for the conservative website Breitbart.
