Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an upcoming single-player RPG, due for release across all current-gen platforms (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) in February 2012. R.A. Salvatore is working on the game's "universe" and lore; Ken Rolston (Morrowind, Oblivion) is the lead designer; Todd MacFarlane (Spawn) is working on the artwork; Jim Sterling is championing Reckoning, as am I. The game is undoubtedly the first "important" western RPG of 2012. Bethesda is in direct competition with 38 Studios and Big Huge Games (both working on Reckoning) for my money between November and February.
Anyone else interested? Does a Reckoning thread exist already? If so, should I hang myself now, or later?
