Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Special Editions Limit Trolling

Reckoning

Dude, don't smash my soundtrack!

When a new studio has been working on a new video game franchise and generally promotes the franchise by touting the names of the producers/directors behind the game for years before unveiling the name of the actual franchise, you can bet that they will try and tap into the fans of that big name team. Whew, did you follow that? Well if not just know that Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is the first game from Curt Schilling, Todd McFarlane, Ken Rolston, and R.A Salvatore’s 38 Studios. The action RPG will be released on February 7th in North America.

By now we are used to overblown fan service special editions and collector’s editions of the big franchises out there. New franchises face a different battle, but Reckoning is coming out swinging with a wide variety of special editions complete with limited availability and a “superfan” Signature Edition that is already sold out. Allow me to build it up for you:

  • The $80 Special Edition includes your standard map and soundtrack plus dice with a dicebag, a full set of 40 Destiny card, and bonus DLC (2,000 Available)
  • The $200 Collector’s Edition includes everything in the Special Edition plus a McFarlane Troll figurine, signed lithograph (700 Available)
  • The SOLD OUT $275 Signature Edition includes everything in the Special and Collector’s Editions plus 1 of 300 sketch Limited Edition screen-prints by McFarlane, and the troll figure will be signed by one of Schillin, McFarlane, or Salvatore. (Only 300 produced)
Full Limited Edition info and preordering is available here. Looks like we all missed out on being the ultimate Reckoning fan, but signed trolls aside, the game is looking pretty decent and isn’t that far away. It should settle in nicely after RPG fans come down from their Skyrim high.
