Kingdoms of Amalur remake is an extensive remaster of the original game, featuring a story born from collaboration between fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, Elder Scrolls 4 designer Ken Rolston, and Todd McFarlane, the creator of Spawn. It’s set in the Faelands, your usual fantasy world full of gnomes and the like, and it centers around the Fateless One (that’s you).

In a world where immortals exist, continually reborn in new vessels, the unthinkable happens. A dead mortal is reborn. While it triggers conflict between the warring Fae factions, it also sets the Fateless One on a journey to both uncover the truth of their origins and change the fates of others they encounter.

On top of the obvious graphical enhancements, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning comes with all the DLC from the original release, including Teeth of Naros and Legend of Dead Kel, and an all-new expansion titled Fatesworn baked into it.

And if you’re keen on it, THQ Nordic is putting out a Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning collector’s edition as well. The collector’s edition comes with:

  • The Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning game
  • Alyn Shir collectible statue
  • Soundtrack
  • Amalur keychain
  • 5 art cards
  • Collectible box
