A trailer has also been released for the game now.
Cologne is the center of the gaming universe today and, during the EA keynote, 38 Studios' Ken Rolston announced the release date for their highly anticipated RPG, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Before we get to that exact date, however, let's hear from Curt Schilling, MLB great, bloody sock aficionado, and Chairman and Founder of 38 Studios, who hypes up the game before delivering the date... just like he used to hype up his fastball before delivering the splitter:
Reckoning is just the beginning of the deep, expansive lore and massive world that is Amalur. We’re working with iconic visionaries who have trailblazed the direction of their respective fields. Todd McFarlane lends his expertise to inspire the game’s bold art style and combat design, R.A. Salvatore created the deep, immersive history and culture of the world, and industry-icon Ken Rolston forges the expansive systems that RPG fans know and love. Reckoning has developed into something amazing and beyond my wildest dreams — I cannot wait to share it with gamers across the world next February.
And February it is. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
will be released in North America on February 7th, 2012 and in Europe on February 10th.
