After the Crystal War has been fought and Gadlow has been defeated, the people of Amalur were hoping for peace to return to their lands.

None other than Telogrus, the God of Chaos himself has awoken and is gathering followers to throw the whole world into chaos. The expansion Fatesworn offers a brand new storyline, a new environment, various new quests and missions, new Chaos Realm dungeons all over Amalur, a new gameplay mechanic, new weapons and armor, new enemies, and much more. It will raise the level cap to 50, and even features a new soundtrack by famous composer Grant Kirkhope. Fatesworn requires the base game Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. Expand

    At $20, Fatesworn offers a strong enough great to bland ratio for me to recommend. I thought the DLC felt a little formulaic, with a lot of boxes checked and not a lot of fresh creativity and inspiration, but, I adore Kingdoms of Amalur and was happy to dive into a new area with new content. Fatesworn will provide a solid ten hours, if not more, depending on the difficulty you’re playing on, your skill, and just how thorough you want to be. Given that you have to have completed the original (long) game to access this new content, Fatesworn is clearly for fans who enjoyed the original gameplay loop and want more of the same. If that’s you, like it was me, Fatesworn was worth the wait. Here’s hoping THQ Nordic keeps Amalur in their future plans.

    We loved the original Kingdoms of Amalur a lot and so having an extra 20+ hours of unexpected DLC is a real treat but if Amalur wasn't for you, then neither is Fatesworn.

    While some aspects of the story are a little forgettable, if you enjoyed the original Kingdoms of Amalur then it’s a fairly safe bet that you’ll get some enjoyment out of this expansion. Being reunited with old friends and hearing that they still have the same voice actors is definitely a really nice touch. The new chaos features don’t massively change the gameplay but having a raised level cap means that there’s even more reason to experiment with your character build and enjoy the fun combat.

    We're not sure every Amalur fan will appreciate Fatesworn's central storyline. It's nothing crazy — Fate, meet Chaos! — but you could argue that the developer is a little sloppy in its handling of the game's established cast and lore. But for what it's worth, we do think Fatesworn is heartfelt — a genuine homage to a game that would have been undeservedly forgotten, had it not been for THQ and Kaiko's efforts.
