Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning launches with first-day DLC pack

Role-playing fans are to be introduced to a whole new fantasy universe this week when EA and 38 Studios' Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning hits stores, with add-on content set to be available online right from launch day.

Developed by Big Huge Games, the epic adventure is released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Players can battle creatures and see amazing sights in Amalur, a world created by bestselling author RA Salvatore, comics legend Todd McFarlane and acclaimed game designer Ken Rolston.

Those who pick up a new copy of the game will also receive an Online Pass that allows them to download House of Valor, a DLC pack that includes seven exclusive additional quests.

In House of Valor, players will compete in a barbaric combat tournament at the behest of grand champion Tyr Magnus, as well as visiting the Arena Battle Board to access various challenges and unlock new items.

Curt Schilling, founder and chairman of 38 Studios, said: "We are deeply committed to the RPG community and plan to continue to serve up a lot more story-based and action-packed content in the near and long term."

Fans can unlock additional content in Kingdoms of Amalur by downloading the upcoming demo of Mass Effect 3.
