EA has released the launch trailer for their Big Huge Games developed megaton RPG, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a few days ahead of its release.
There’s been a lot of hype for Reckoning lately. The developers have been comparing it to all sorts of legendary games, from God of War, to Fable, to Skyrim, saying that Reckoning’s combat sets it apart from all of them. Ken Rolston, the lead designer of the game, went as far as saying that Reckoning has the best combat you’ll ever see in an RPG.
In its first official review, Reckoning got a 9 by Xbox 360 Magazine Italy, who said it’s a must-have game, even for those who’re not big RPG fans.
The demo for Reckoning is out on Xbox Live, Origin and PS3. It may have a lot of bugs, but don’t worry, they won’t be there in the final game in the slightest.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning releases on February 7 in US and February 10 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. You can watch another trailer that shows and details its game world here.
Here’s why we think Reckoning might just turn out to be a better game than its direct competitor, Skyrim.
