SDCC 2010: 38 Studios Announces ‘Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning’
  |  @   |  

On Thursday at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con the first game from Curt Schilling‘s 38 Studios was announced — a fantasy RPG titled Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning.

Schilling, a former MLB pitcher and self described hard core gamer (who apparently had specific internet connection for hotel rooms written into his later contracts) is the heart and soul behind the project, but he has assembled an A-list of talent to create his first game. Writing the story for the game is New York Times best selling author R.A. Salvatore, who is well known in fantasy circles for writing some of the most successful novels based on the Dungeons and Dragons brand. Providing a lot of the art for the game, as well as supervising all the other art is comic creator Todd McFarlane, creator of Spawn. And the lead designer for the game is Ken Rolston, who was the lead designer on two modern classic RPG’s: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind as well as its sequel The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

The game is set to release in the Fall of 2011 on consoles and PC, and Thursday’s panel saw the release of the first trailer for the game. Reckoning will be the first in a line of games taking place in the Kingdom of Amalur universe, with a proposed MMO to come out at some point after the release of Reckoning. This first game will be a single player RPG that deals with the effects of resurrection on the fantasy world of the game. The trailer can be seen now at reckoningthegame.com and is a great first impression of what the game will look like.

With this line up of creative minds behind the game, Schiller may have the makings of a great new series on his hands. (You wouldn’t believe how hard it was for me not to use a baseball cliché there.)
