New Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Trailer Helps Us Get Our Feet Wet

on September 25, 2011 11:00 AM

If you want a nice, fairly detailed overview of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, go no farther than this new video released by 38 Studios and EA today. What I’m getting from this game lately is a very Fable-like vibe, especially in regards to the character design. Also, some of the archetecture is very European, like we see in the Lionhead title. This isn’t a bad thing, because I’m pretty sure Amalur will be a deeper game than the last couple Fable titles.

You’ll also see very colorful and vibrant landscapes and other environments. Even the dungeons are detailed and unique, with great use of lighting and perspective. I’m getting hyped, are you getting hyped? Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is set to release on February 2, 2012.
