38 Studios and Big Huge Games’ brand new action-RPG might already be out on the market but for those hoping to make their journey through the mythical land with the aid of a strategy guide the wait is going to be a little bit longer as Future Press have announced that their official Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning strategy guide has been delayed until the second half of February, with no specific date given.
On their Facebook page, Future Press made this announcement:
“First of all, we’d like to apologize to people who are disappointed that the guide is late. Please believe us, we’re working night and day to create a guide that has the same high quality standards as any other Future Press guide. We have increased the page count from initially 400 to now 600 pages to make justice to the massive content that the game delivers. We could have easily deleted entire chapters just to be in time (and the guide would have still been decent), but that’s not what we do.
The guide will be out in the second half of February, and we certainly hope that it’s well worth the wait for you guys. We really appreciate everyone’s patience.”
Still, if this delay is merely to ensure the guide does justice to the game, then the wait should be worth it, especially at 600-pages long – a size that almost rivals the mighty Skyrim guide which stands at 655-pages.
So, until it gets released, just try not to get lost too often.
