Return to Amalur this September
Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, the remastered version of 38 Studios’ 2012 ARPG, is out for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 8th.
THQ Nordic promises stunning visuals and refined gameplay, but there’s also a bunch of new content coming. A new expansion named Fatesworn will launch in 2021, and if the re-release is a success that’s probably not the last DLC.
Choose your destiny: There will be three different versions of Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning: Standard Edition, Fate Edition (includes the expansion), and the Collection’s Edition – which has its own trailer.

Mortal Kombat has had many masters
Could Mortal Kombat become an Xbox exclusive? It’s not impossible, and it’s not the first time the franchise changes owner. The original Mortal Kombat games were published on console by Acclaim, before Midway acquired the publishing rights.
Then Midway went bust, and Warner Bros. Interactive rehomed both the development team and the publishing rights. Now Netherrealm and the Mortal Kombat rights are back on the market, and whoever decides to buy them will be the proud owners of one of the oldest and best-known franchises in the business.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2
COVID-19 takes its toll on the team behind Final Fantasy VII Remake
2020 has been the year of COVID-19, wreaking havoc on everything from the esports events to the Tokyo Olympics – and Final Fantasy Remake Part 2! Game Director Yoshinori Kitase told The Guardian that the game was already behind schedule.
Fortunately, Kitase doesn’t think the pandemic will have a major impact on the development schedule: “At this current time, the team are still making the next game via remote working. Our performance will temporarily drop below 100% efficiency because of this, but I do not think there should be a big impact in the long term.”
- Final Fantasy VII Remake sold 3.5 million copies in its first three days on sale
- Final Fantasy VII Remake is a timed PlayStation 4 exclusive until April next year
High hopes: “I sincerely hope that Final Fantasy VII Remake can provide those who are forced to endure the stress of living under lockdown a moment of relief and enjoyment in these trying times.”
