Mega-publisher EA tends to publish interesting, unsafe bets in February. In 2009, they released Dante’s Inferno; in 2010, Bulletstorm. Today the company said Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a promising singleplayer action RPG of unusual pedigree, will hit February 7, 2012.
Baseball star turned game developer Curt Schilling and his team at 38 Studios are hard at work on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, perhaps the strongest looking role-playing we’ve ever seen from a professional athlete.
Previously known simply as Project Mercury, Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios and EA finally give the Todd McFarlane, R.A. Salvatore and Ken Rolston powered role-playing game a name, promising open world exploration and fast-paced action combat in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
