Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning to be Remastered

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning came out in 2012, and despite it being a story-rich adventure full of magic and fantasy, it didn’t quite reach the popularity it deserved. It has now been given another chance after THQ Nordic revealed that a remastered version will be arriving this summer.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning to be Remastered.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will always be one of my personal favourite RPGs. With its whirlwind of magic, open-world of wonders, and fantasy-fuelled fun, it seemed like the perfect game for fantasy lovers. But for some reason, it didn’t quite make the mark that it had intended. Coupled with the fact the company that produced it, 38 Studios, was closed down shortly after the game’s release, things weren’t looking good. Luckily, we now have some fantastic news: thanks to THQ Nordic, Kingdoms of Amalur will be getting another opportunity to shine in an upcoming remastered version.

Back in 2018, THQ Nordic (known for popular titles such as Darksiders and Destroy All Humans!) bought the rights to the Amalur franchise, giving hope to the fans that something more may be made of it in time. The remastered version- named Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning – will include better graphics, enhanced gameplay, and other improvements. More information is set to be released in the coming weeks.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is one of the most underrated games of all time, but the new remastered version may bring it the popularity it deserves.

On Thursday, THQ Nordic confirmed that a remaster was on the way in a tweet on their Twitter account:
