Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Remaster Appears on the Microsoft Store

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Remaster Appears on the Microsoft Store

That's one pretty detailed listing for the "Re-Reckoning."

If you're a fan of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, then we've got good news for you. According to a pretty detailed listing on the Microsoft Store, it appears the 2012 game is getting remastered for a release in August.

The official name of the remastered game is Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. THQ Nordic, the publisher for Re-Reckoning, is the same publisher that put out Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition, so clearly they're not interested in bolting the standard "Remaster" term onto the end of the name of the game.

The Microsoft Store listing for the remaster of Kingdoms of Amalur has a release date of August 11. The original 2012 game from developer Big Huge Games and 38 Studios released on the PC for Microsoft Windows, PS3, and Xbox 360, but this Microsoft Store listing only has a mention of an Xbox One version of the remaster, not noting a PC version.

On top of a remaster, this re-release also includes all DLC that released after the base game back in 2012. This includes the Teeth of Naros, Legend of Dead Kel, and more DLC packaged into the remaster.

At the time of writing, there's been no confirmation of the remaster by THQ Nordic. But, given the pretty detailed Microsoft Store listing for the game, we can pretty safely assume this Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning remaster is real, and arriving this August. THQ Nordic acquired the property back in 2018, years after 38 Studios had filed for bankruptcy.

Earlier this year, our Axe of the Blood God podcast delved into all the failed RPGs that deserve another chance. Kingdoms of Amalur was selected by Kat and Nadia as one of these games, and it looks like it actually is getting another chance.
