EA announces new RPG

Having confirmed in March that it had entered into a publishing deal for developer 38 Studios’ mystery RPG Project Mercury”, EA has officially confirmed details of its new fantasy title.

Called Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the title is an open-world RPG set in a new world created by popular author R. A. Salvatore and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane.

Furthermore, development is being headed up by Ken Rolston – the man behind Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

In Reckoning, we started with Bob and Todd’s exceptional Kingdoms of Amalur game setting and imagery,” Rolston stated. On that foundation we built the open-world exploration, vast narrative and character customization fans expect from the best RPGs.

And we’ve added something new that we’ve always wanted from the genre – a fast-paced, graphically stimulating action combat experience with fluid control and immersive, discoverable gameplay fans haven’t seen before in other fantasy RPGs.”

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is due out on Xbox 360 and PS3 in autumn 2011.

It’s the second game EA has announced today after lifting the lid on Fight Night Champion this morning.
