The in-game map for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is by no means “small”, but it’s about to get bigger with the first batch of DLC announced for the game. The Legend of Dead Kel will increase the game’s world by 15%, bringing plenty of intrigue, danger and dark magic along with it.
Set on the all-new continent of Gallows End, there’s new enemies, dungeons and items to go with the “epic” new quest line (complete with its own sidequests!). You’ll also discover Gravehal Keep – which is more than simple player housing.

In the few short weeks since launch, Reckoning has gained significant critical acclaim and an adoring fanbase. It seems that any doubts over whether or not a World Series Champion pitcher, a NYT best-selling author and a graphic artist really can spin together an impressive debut creation.
