[Update #2]: As a small holiday present, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning has added a new Arena Mode.

[Update]: The Fatesworn expansion has now arrived, and so far it's looking like a fairly solid addition.

It has been over a year since Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning's Fatesworn expansion was first announced, but the long wait will soon be over. Once Fatesworn arrives this December 14th we'll be able to venture into a brand new region filled with mysterious landmarks to discover, new storylines to unravel, hordes of baddies to beat up, and copious amounts of gear and weapons to hoard.

You can also expect to see the level cap raised to 50, a new Chaos based skill, as well as procedurally generated Chaos dungeons to dive into for that juicy, juicy loot. While the recently posted trailer sadly doesn't showcase all of this in action, it'll at least give you a better idea of what to expect from the story side of things. Have a gander:

In terms of price, the Fatesworn expansion alone will set you back $20 or €20 on PC, Xbox and PlayStation. Should you decide to go for the complete edition that contains the base game as well as the expansion, the whole combo will be $55 or €55, which is five less than buying each individually. The base game goes on sale fairly frequently, however, so if you're looking to save a bit of money it might be wise to wait for the upcoming Christmas sales and then pick up both.

Whatever your choice may be, I'll make sure to let you know once Fatesworn goes live. Until then, you can keep an eye on any upcoming teasers and previews over at the Amalur website.
