Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning demo announced and it comes with a nice incentive
38 Studios has announced that a Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning demo will be released on January 17th for Xbox 360, PC and PS3. Also 38 Studios have teamed up with Bioware for some cross promotion between their game and Mass Effect 3.
The cross promotion between Reckoning and Mass Effect 3 will see fans who play the demo of both games will receive special in-game items in both games. The in-game items are designed by award winning artist Todd McFarlane.
If you play the Reckoning demo you will unlock the following items for Mass Effect 3 when it is released.
- Reckoner Knight Armor: This armor will maximize damage done in close-quarters combat while a beefed–up power cell feeds energy into weapon systems to increase projectile velocity.
- The Chakram Launcher: This weapon uses a fabricator to manufacture lightweight, explosive ammunition discs. This weapon is earned after completing the Reckoning demo and watching the trailer at the end.
If you play the Mass Effect 3 demo you will unlock the following items for Reckoning when it is released.
- N7 Armor: Players can unlock special armor inspired by Commander Shepard’s iconic N7 battle armor including Helm, Cuirass, Gauntlets, Chausses and Greaves.
- Onmiblade Daggers: A holographic blade stemming from Commander Shepard’s Omni-Tool, the Omni-blade allows players to stab enemies in close combat. Once players install and play the Mass Effect 3 demo, they will unlock the daggers.
The Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning demo itself will feature the introduction to the game, allowing players to experience the game’s Tutorial mode and portion of its large, open world. Players will create and customize their hero and drop right into the action. Once players master the basics, they will have 45 minutes to explore the vast world of Amalur and begin to embark upon a quest that could redefine their character’s destiny forever.
The Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will be available on February 7, 2012 (NA) and February 10, 2012 (EU) for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
