38 Studios: Amalur.com and Reckoning.com

38 Studios launched a new IP site at Amalur.com! For you lore junkies out there, I’d encourage you to fully explore the site and click the “Age of Arcana” link toward the bottom for lots of story goodness. We’ve also launched a new site for Reckoning, so check that out as well! It’s pretty cool as we get to start sharing some more of the things we’ve kept close to the chest for years. Enjoy!

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Forums

It’s been a long time since we first started talking about 38 Studios and what we’ve been working on. If you’ve been paying attention lately, you’ve probably seen more information surface about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, an epic open world fantasy RPG set in the world of Amalur (the same universe as our MMO, codenamed Copernicus). At long last, we’ll begin to interact on an official basis on the brand new Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning forums. See you in the community!

Did Kingdoms of Amalur Get “Best New IP?”

Game Trailers announced their Best New IP of E3 award. One of the nominees was Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. That’s the IP I’ve been working on since 2006 with the team at 38, though Reckoning itself is being developed by our sister studio in Maryland (we Rhode Islanders are working on the MMO, codenamed Copernicus). Check out the Game Trailers video to see if Reckoning took the honors. Something I failed to mention earlier: Reckoning won RipTen’s Best RPG of E3!
