Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning has seemingly leaked on the Microsoft Store and will apparently make its way to at least Xbox One on August 11, 2020. Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is a remastered version of the 2012's Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning that was released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. This remaster appears to include all DLC, including Teeth of Naros and Legend of Dead Kel, and will have "improved graphical fidelity." [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=kingdoms-of-amalur-re-reckoning-screenshots&captions=true"] Amalur's story is penned by New York Times' best-selling author R.A. Salvatore and was also developed by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designed Ken Rolston. In our review of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, we said "Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning isn't the perfect game. Its random technical hiccups and inconsistent art style certainly holds it back from even higher levels of greatness. But no matter what you're looking for, whether it be amazing gameplay, immersive storytelling or perhaps a riveting new world to explore as you fully customize and re-customize your character at will, Reckoning has it all." Kingdoms of Amalur was originally developed by 38 Studios and was published by EA. In 2018, THQ Nordic bought the property from the now-defunct studio, although EA still owned the publishing rights. It appears they worked out a deal to make this happen. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2012/02/03/kingdoms-of-amalur-reckoning-video-review"] Amalur came with a ton of controversy, as the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation filed a lawsuit against 38 Studios founder and ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and other executives. 38 Studios went out of business following a $75 million dollar loan supported by Rhode Island taxpayers.
