Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning official artwork and logo for the action-RPG remake

The gift-giving season is well and truly upon us, and so the Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning team has decided to unleash a brand new update for everyone to enjoy. It brings with it a new Arena Mode that will have you, unsurprisingly, fight against hordes upon hordes of challenging enemies across three new arena locations.

The difficulty will increase with each encounter you conquer, as will as the rewards, so do make sure to gear yourself up before you step into the arena. And if you're feeling particularly bold, make sure to complete the various round challenges in order to receive even greater rewards!

Needless to say, this is by no means a massive update, so don't go into it expecting something on the level of the Fatesworn expansion. Instead, treat the whole arena system as a fun little diversion between bouts of questing and you should have a pretty good time with it.

The final thing worth mentioning is that Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is currently on a 67% discount on Steam, and will remain like that until January 5th. So if you're feeling a tinge of nostalgia for the 2012 action-RPG, this might be a pretty good time to give it a try.

Have fun, and I'll leave you with the remaster's launch trailer:
