At the end of last year the developer behind Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning announced it would be delaying the "long-awaited" Fatesworn expansion for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
The decision behind this at the time was in order to meet the "high expectations" of players. It seems it's now finally arrived on the Switch eShop earlier this week. It will set you back $19.99 / £15.99 (or your regional equivalent).
Here's a bit about this expansion, along with a look:
"Telogrus, God of Chaos, has emerged to claim his mortal kingdom and only you can challenge this risen god, Fateless One. Fatesworn offers a brand new storyline, a new environment, various new quests and missions, new Chaos Realm dungeons all over Amalur, a new gameplay mechanic, new weapons and armor, new enemies, and much more. It will raise the level cap to 50, and even features a new soundtrack by famous composer Grant Kirkhope. Fatesworn requires the base game Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning."
Will you be revisiting Kingdoms of Amalur on Switch to try out this latest expansion? Comment below.
I wish they’d share the cost in the announcement.
Speaking of DLC, random aside but figured I’d mention it just in case someone can help…. But is the streets of rage 4 dlc only viewable through the in game? I can’t find an eshop page for it anywhere.
@AG_Awesome $19.99 USD for the Amalur expansion.
@AG_Awesome I don't know what country your account is set for, but the DLC isn't available on every eshop, including some eshops where the main game is available, Mexico for example
@John_Deacon it’s the US eshop. I tried a google search for it and an eshop search. Even went to SoR eshop page and looked for DLC but didn’t see it. Out of curiosity, why isn’t it available?
@Liam_Doolan thank you!!
@AG_Awesome think they made the Streets of Rage DLC just a regular part of the game it was made free and i think they just added it to the last patch as apart of the regular download
I loved everything about Amalur besides the quests...which eventually I realized was kind of a big deal for an rpg. Man, it feels great to play and the music is rad though. Frustrating game.
Finally! I've been wanting to scratch that arpg itch but just started minish cap for the first time recently so it'll have to wait for now.
YES! I've been waiting for this for so long and now it's out just before I go on a trip! Now if only we could get that Witcher 3 update...
Been waiting for this to release before reinstalling the game. I made it about 1/3 through then hopped over to MUA3 while waiting for Fatesworn.
So many games on my backlog, but def giving this the full go now as the game was fun, just massive. Hopefully there’s a sequel in the future and it improves on everything.
@Williamfuchs420 Are you sure? If that’s the case that is awesome. I saw it was discounted on the ps4 so I went to get it on the switch and it was nowhere to be found. Then I tried checking deku deals for price history and it doesn’t have any links for the content either.
@AG_Awesome not 100% and i dont own the game to check but it makes sense im pretty sure the dlc was there at one point combining it to the main download if its gonna be free anyway makes sense
I’ve tried playing this a few times but I just can’t get into western rpgs, ive been playing jrpgs since the NES days. I like how almost no jrpgs have a weight limit for inventory , or the single perk point you get from leveling up. I like how jrpgs for lost part do the work. I just wish they made them ps5 AAA looking instead of stylized only thing western rpgs have is graphics.
@John_Deacon It's now live for the Mexican eShop.
@AG_Awesome In-game only for some bizarre reason.
@Williamfuchs420 not free sadly, you have to select Mr. X Nightmare on the main menu in-game and it takes you to the eshop
Just bought this game on Amazon for £19.99 seemed like a good deal. Can't wait to play it.
Amalur is essentially a single-player World of Warcraft. That's the best way to describe it to anyone who hasn't played it. It's a very average game to be fair. I hate how the lore is so forced. It tries to be too deep and exotic. It just doesn't feel natural like Mass Effect or The Elder Scrolls. I feel like I'm trying to follow and dive into lore by someone who had 24 hours to write about an entire population of people.
@BinaryMessiah proby because the lore was written in 24 hours dude behind game of thrones did it as a quick check and delaying tactic for his books he can’t finish
@Williamfuchs420 I am sure he will finish them. He just will work on it after: he purchases a theater, TV Show cash-ins, books that are not the one everyone wants, bad movies, and whatever else he wants to do that isn't finishing the book started 10+ years ago....
Maybe a crazy person in a motor vehicle will almost kill him to motive him to finish what he started before he dies like a certain other author, or someone will gather around his deathbed to hear his the vision and finish the story for him.
@Darknyht if it is ever finished itll be by that Sandarsan guy who finished Wheel of Time… thats the joke i keep hearing
Once again I wish for an actual, engaging MMO on the Switch. And once again I dream of FFXII retooled into FFXIIOnline, with the same retro graphics, but with sprawling, redesigned environments for an MMO. Everything about FFXII is just begging to be turned into an MMO.
@Williamfuchs420 @Darknyht I think George R.R.Martin is just resentful that the showrunners on HBO spoiled his big plot twist, especially because they handled the writing so poorly that they made it look like a horrible decision.
I have half a mind to believe he will finish the book with a completely different ending to the show, just to stick it to them for executing his plot twist so poorly.
@Ulysses think your spot on… he got caught up in the fame too probably got more attention then he ever did before the show and definitely got plenty of offers for other work this being a example so when the show pissed fans off and he decided he needed to rewrite the ending in response he just kinda put everything to the back burner and focused on all these new opportunities don’t really blame him can you imagine the Hate he would of gotten if he just released text versions of those last few seasons with no changes… the whole book series would be trashed
@Williamfuchs420 Amalur was written by RA Salvatore (creator of D&D's dark elf Drizz't), not George R. R. Martin.
@vincentgoodwin nice catch you know what i got it confused with Elden Ring 😂 thats what he worked on i knew some fantasy author worked on this and i knew Martin worked on something and got it confused thanks for the correction
@Ulysses I think that played into it, but I also think that he has somewhat written himself into a corner while the audience expectation is almost to the point of not being able to be satisfied.
As for the game, I have been debating buying this game for way too long. If nothing just because of all the mess that surrounds it's creation.
I'm playing this on 360 now. Its a great game. I love how colourful it is. Helps it still look pretty nice today.
