Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning first gameplay trailer is all about finesse

THQ Nordic has released the first gameplay trailer for Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning with this one focusing on the Finesse skills which essentially leads to a stealth build character. The footage shows the Finesse character sneaking up to enemies and stabbing them from behind, or carrying out attacks from a distance. Of course, Finesse is just one way to play Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning so if you do not fancy going stealth, you can always run and swing at things with your sword.


It was in June when Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning was first announced. As a full remaster this contains all of the content from the original release, but THQ Nordic is going a step further. In 2021, a brand new expansion called Fatesworn will also be released though the content of that is yet to be announced. For fans wondering just how much space Re-Reckoning will eat up on their hard-drives, the official Xbox listing for the game may have the answer. According to the Microsoft store page, the approximate download file size is 29.97 GB.

Back in 2012 Jim reviewed Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning and wrote:

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.
