Due for release in early February, EA’s Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an open-world action RPG that fuses the creativity of two celebrated visionaries for the very first time. The game is being visually designed by Todd McFarlane; the man responsible for creating Spawn and reinvigorating Spiderman via his seminal run of Amazing Spider-Man comics which began in 1988. It’s also being constructed under the leadership of Ken Rolston who led the design of Morrowind and Oblivion; two of the most critically worshipped RPGs of all time. The latest gameplay trailer – which centres on the gameplay’s substantial crafting element – was unveiled by EA yesterday afternoon and is embedded at the bottom of this page.
And don’t forget that when you pre-order your copy of the game at zavvi – on Xbox 360, PC or Playstation 3 – you’ll receive some exclusive free DLC. The ‘Dowsing Rod’ makes all potion-making vegetation visible on your map, allowing you to constantly reap all the benefits of potion-making.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is currently due for release on Xbox 360, PC and Playstation 3 on Friday, February 10th 2012.
