Ships Ahoy - Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Electronic Arts and 3D Studios announce the release of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the new role-playing game from 3D Studios' Big Huge Games. The announcement has word on a "House of Valor" digital download pack that's available with code included with the console versions of the game, but there's no word on plans to bring it to the Windows edition. A previously released playable demo is still available, and here's a bit:

PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Choose your destiny in the massive and mysterious world of Amalur! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA), 38 Studios, LLC and Big Huge Games today released the much anticipated open-world action role-playing game, Kingdoms of Amalur™: Reckoning™. The game’s vision was brought to life by 24-time New York Times bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and internationally-celebrated game designer Ken Rolston – an all-star team assembled by three-time World Series Champion pitcher and founder of 38 Studios, Curt Schilling. This original intellectual property breaks new ground by melding a deep open-world RPG experience with visceral action combat that offers players millions of combinations of moves, weapons and armor in a completely unique experience for every individual. IGN.com, who awarded the game with a 9 out of 10 review score, anticipates "Reckoning will be discussed when Game of the Year 2012 rolls around," adding that it "certainly isn't a game you should sleep on. Quite the contrary: Amalur demands your attention." The UK's The Guardian added "Reckoning sounds like just the kind of start to 2012 RPG fans were hoping for."

Just to clarify, the House of Valor pack that the consoles need to put in an online pass to get comes AUTOMATICALLY in all PC copies of the game without needing to put in an extra code. Since, well, you can't really get this game pre-owned like the consoles...

Thanks for explaining that, as the way it was worded made it seem that EA was just giving another big, fat middle-finger to PC players.
