Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning Story DLC Coming In March

If you feel as though you've already mined the world of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning for every ounce of entertainment, more is on the way. EA, 38 Studios, and Big Huge Games have revealed details about the game's first story DLC, called the Legend of Dead Kel.

The DLC will be available on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network, Steam, and Origin starting March 20. It adds a host of new features, most noteworthy among them is an entirely new landmass called Gallows End.

Here's the word from EA on what you can expect:

  • An Epic New Questline – The Legend of Dead Kel is only part of the story of Gallows End. It intertwines with numerous side quests, multiple dungeons to explore, and a colorful cast of characters
  • New Enemies, Dungeons, Items – Multiple new enemies and enemy variants, a new dungeon type: Dverga Fastings, three new Twists of Fate, eight new armor sets, eight new shields, and 18 new unique weapons
  • The Ultimate Player Housing – Gravehal Keep is more than just player housing, it's a massive estate with multiple buildings and a full retinue of retainers, each with their own back stories, side quests, perks, and quirks
  • Tons more to Explore – The Legend of Dead Kel DLC adds in more than 15% of additional land to traverse and explore in the already massively expansive world that is Amalur

They had me at "new enemies." Seriously. While I've been having a great time with the game, I feel like I've been killing the same four monsters for the past 20 hours.
