‘Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning’ is described as a “brilliant RPG’ and with author R. A. Salvatore, ‘The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’-lead designer Ken Rolston and comic book icon Todd McFarlane as the creative minds behind it just seems natural.
It was released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2012 and it flew under my radar as I first saw it in a game store last year. It’s said that the title hasn’t met the financial expectations of EA, which is sad, because it could’ve become a great franchise.
The news here is that Microsoft Store has a listing for ‘Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning’, a remaster “with stunning visuals and refined gameplay Re-Reckoning delivers intense, customizable RPG combat inside a sprawling game world.”
Two of the main selling points are:
- Extend your experience in Amalur with all DLC from the original release, from Teeth of Naros to Legend of Dead Kel and more!
- Explore deep levels of lore in a universe steeped in 10,000 years of fiction created by New York Times bestselling author R.A. Salvatore.
Available on Xbox One in August. The franchise is now owned by THQ Nordic so it’s very likely will see a PC and PS4 release aswell.
Till then, check out the launch trailer for the original game:
And some screens from the Microsoft Store:
More gameplay sequences from ‘Baldur’s Gate 3’ have emerged and we’re in for more “starting June 6“, according to developer Larian Studios.
The title was announced last year (on June 6th). At the end of February this year, gameplay footage premiered.
Last May, a new title from Laria – the makers of Divinity: Original Sin – was teased.
One week later – Baldur’s Gate III was cofirmed along with an official announcement trailer. Single-player and multi-player was confirmed while stated it would be Laria’s biggest title yet, with over 300 employees at that time.
The hype around the Internet was, and still IS big, as fans have been waiting for 20 years for the trequel.
One hour of gameplay has been revealed today at the PAX East 2020. Here it is:
I haven’t seen it yet but planning to, sometime during this weekend, and will probably share my two cents. Here’s another cool stuff meanwhile – the official opening cinematic (in 4K):
As stated during at the above PAX East 2020 demo, it will enter early access within the next few months. The final game will most likely launch in 2020 and is so far confirmed for PC and Google Stadia.
‘Magic: Legends’ is a title that was announced at The Game Awards in December.
Looks a lot like a Diablo-style action RPG that unfolds in real time with players being able to build a deck of 12 cards and, as it seems in the trailer below, it works a lot like using abilities in other games of the genre.
It’s the first time fans are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the fictional Multiverse of ‘Magic: The Gathering’ as a powerful, spell-wielding Planeswalker.
An ancient force moves in the darkness and it’s up to you to walk the planes and gather the power needed to fight. Choose your path through the planes, collect spells to create powerful spell hands, and control the chaos of battle as you fight to save the Multiverse from its greatest threat yet.
Magic: Legends is free-to-play, and will be available later this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Here’s the teaser cinematic trailer released at TGA 2019:
Diablo IV was announced two weeks ago at Blizzcon 19.
A contender to the throne of the gender is the now revealed Path of Exile 2. You can view the trailer above and for an in-dept first-look at the gameplay, the video below. Fourteen minutes that explain loads of things and answers your burning questions.
It seems that the sequel won’t be a stand-alone but will add to the original and its extra content. There will, however, be seven new acts to a new campaign.
Nineteen new playable classes are added and the game engine is upgraded, leading to better and crispier visuals. The dark atmosphere will be kept.
Beta tests will be involved as a part of development BUT that won’t happen until the end of 2020. No official release date revealed yet.
I’ll keep you updated when more info emerge.
Diablo 4 was officially announced during this year’s Blizzcon. Cinematic + gameplay footage have put the Internet on fire.
YouTuber “Bluddshed” had the chance to play the demo and you get the chance to see the three (so far) confirmed classes: Barbarian, Sorceress and Druid.
It’s longer than one hour and a half, haven’t got the time to watch it yet, but it’s a must, right?
I should also mention that there’s no release date det yet but, I’ll keep you updated.
Just got the opportunity to find out about this game. It looks freakin’ awesome!!!
According to its Kickstarter campaign, it is simply described as:
“A third-person open world survival horror action RPG set in a universe you’ve never experienced before. Play as one of the Forsaken, the last frontier of humanity against the growing horrors of the Omnistructure. As you find yourself stranded in a faraway outpost, you must adapt in order to survive. The world won’t wait for you though, you must venture into the unknown – your faith will decide your fate.”
I like open-world games. I like RPGs. Therefore… I like this one.
You can also find some amazing art and more details concerning setting and combat etc. Early access is planned for Q4 this year and the full release sometime during the first half of the next year. Console versions seem very likely but will take longer.
Black Desert Online will be released on 22 August for PS4. The game is available for PC and Xbox One.
Players are given a chance to test it in form of an open beta that is live now and will be until Tuesday. It’s free to download and according to an official source, you won’t need an active PSN- subscription. Three regions and six classes are available.
At the very end of the testing period, a firework show is on. Cool, right?
Greedfall is set in an alternative universe during the 1600s. The humans coexist togheter with other creatures on the island called Greedfall.
GreedFall announces September 10 release date with new trailer. Platforms:
PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Besides The Other Worlds, which is set to release October 25, there are no major RPGs on the pipeline, so if done correctly, Greedfall could become the next hit.
Looks cool. As a fan of RPG- games, I might just give this a chance.
