Publisher THQ Nordic has announced that Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning – Fatesworn, a brand new expansion for a remaster of a 2012 action RPG, has a release date of December 14, 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. No Nintendo Switch release date has been announced yet, (Update: It will release sometime in 2022.) but there is at least a new trailer to enjoy. Fatesworn was announced last year prior to the launch of the remaster and given a general 2021 release window, but so much time had passed since then that it seemed like it wouldn’t release this year. But it is! And it will retail for $19.99 / €19.99 / £17.99, unless you bought Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Fate Edition, which includes the expansion.
Besides the release date trailer, here’s what else THQ Nordic has offered about the Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning – Fatesworn expansion:
Journey to a brand-new region in Amalur, filled with snowy tundras, deep caverns, and treacherous enemies. Visit mountain villages and the ancient lakeside city of Crownhold and master the unstable power of Chaos with a new skill, weapons and armor. As the fabled Fatesworn, you will wage a last battle against the Niskaru and their Chaos brethren, as procedurally generated Chaos dungeons turn every region in Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning into a potential battlefield. Fatesworn offers a brand new storyline, a new environment, various new quests and missions, new Chaos Realm dungeons all over Amalur, a new gameplay mechanic, new weapons and armor, new enemies, and much more. It will raise the level cap to 50, and even features a new soundtrack by famous composer Grant Kirkhope.
It’s not completely surprising that the Switch version of the Fatesworn expansion has no release date yet, since the Switch version itself launched six months after the other versions. We probably won’t be waiting too long for it though. Stay tuned for more updates.
