Yesterday, Windows Central reported that Kingdoms of Amalur was coming to Xbox One as a remaster. Our very own Jez Corden said the game was a cult hit from the Xbox 360 era, that while polarizing at the time, but is remembered fondly by many who actually gave it enough time.
With art by Spawn creator Todd MacFarlane and writing by noted high-fantasy author R. A. Salvatore, Kingdoms of Amalur should’ve been a big hit, but the studios that built the game ultimately folded under the weight of large loans. Luckily, it’s being resurrected by THQ Nordic with a number of enhancements and it’s coming out on August 18.
If you were a fan of the original, be sure to check out the Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning: Collector’s Edition. The collector’s edition includes artwork, a keychain, the game, and an amazing statue. The box art also reveals that the game is Xbox One X Enhanced. It’s unclear what this means at the moment, but we’re hoping for a higher resolution or better frame rate on the upgraded machine.
