Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning details path of sorcery in new trailer

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Re-Reckoning sorcery

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is right around the corner, set to launch on September 8. The remake of this cult classic was initially leaked on the Microsoft store. Then, publisher THQ Nordic went ahead and officially revealed it. Since that, we’ve learnt about a new expansion coming in 2021, and now THQ Nordic has released a brand new trailer revealing Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning sorcery.

The Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Choose Your Destiny: Sorcery trailer shows off the magic options players can utilize throughout the game. The original was known for its vast amounts of player choice, which of course remains intact for Re-Reckoning. If you choose sorcery, you can destroy your opponents with raw magic rather than through traditional methods. Basically, you’ll dedicate your role towards mastering elemental forces.

Going down this route provides you with a ton of different options. Whether you wield a staff, a chakram, or a scepter, your offensive capabilities are impressive. Sorcery players can let fire, lightning, or ice rain on their enemies, alongside using their Sorcery skills to heal themselves, protect with an arcane shield, or even summon a loyal minion that attacks everything nearby.

What of this cult classic?

This cult RPG comes from the minds of the bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston. At the time of release it underwhelmed in the sales department, but went on to gain cult status in the years following. This remastered version returns with updated visuals and refined gameplay, delivering intense, customizable RPG combat inside an open game world.

THQ Nordic Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning release date and Fatesworn expansion

A brand new expansion is also in development, which never released for the original Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. The Fatesworm expansion remains mostly a mystery, aside from THQ Nordic referring to it as an “expansion” and not as DLC. Hopefully this means Fatesworm will be comparable to the two expansions that released for the original, which were around 6-8 hours long.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning launches September 8, 2020.
