Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Full Access Preview

The Elder Scrolls: Whatchamacallit? Lord of the Huhs? World of Whatcraft? Sorry, right now we're focusing on open-world fantasy game: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Associate Producer Craig Krstolic walked us through one of the game's dungeons and showed us exactly why we should be excited by Big Huge Games' upcoming action RPG. We get to see him lay waste to large groups of enemies with his powerful hero and explain the background for the game's interesting lore. Plus, the main character is called "The Fateless One", and that's sort of incredibly awesome. Like, seriously, how didn't anyone think of that before?

But there's more! After getting a full run-through of one of the game's many dungeons, we also convinced Krstolic to take it outside and explore the open areas of Amalur. Needless to say, we were impressed by the scale and scope of the world. He told us that the world is the size of Oblivion's, meaning we'll have plenty of land to cover while we walk around killing bears, wolves, and anything else to come in our way.
