The Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Fates Edition will include the base game and the new expansion Fatesworn, with the expansion set to release in 2021. Details of the content it will include is yet to be confirmed. The price for that edition will be €54.99 / $54.99 / £47.99.The third and final edition is the Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Collector’s Edition. This version will include:

38 Studios has made a triumphant debut with Reckoning, but there is a long way to go before the Amalur IP reaches its full potential. The combination of an MMO open-world structure with hack n’ slash combat mechanics works well if a little patchy in places; weapons are in dire need of more combos, and the block/dodge system also lacks the finesse of its contemporaries.
These are issues that can easily be ironed out however, though the same can’t be said about the game’s underpinning lore. Sporadic in pace and quality of content, this is the area in which Reckoning borrows too heavily from its MMO ancestry and it really doesn’t pay off.
