The first major DLC addition for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is due in March, and it has pirates.
"The Legend of Dead Kel" himself is the core of the new content, but the DLC promises to add a rather significant expansion onto the base game, providing a whole new northern island area — Gallows End — with quests, characters, and dungeons galore. Also added will be new player housing, Gravehal Keep, featuring an entire estate with even more quest-givers and perks built in. All told, EA claims that the explorable world of Amaulr will grow by 15%.
The Kotaku review found favor with Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and if there was any complaint about the game's scope and size, it was that Amalur was too big, rather than too small. Still, it's hard to go wrong adding even more areas to an already expansive game's world. Especially when there are pirates involved.
"The Legend of Dead Kel" will be available for download on March 20, for 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 on PSN, Origin, and Steam.
