After a lengthy period of silence, publisher THQ Nordic today revealed a new screenshot from Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning's upcoming Fatesworn DLC alongside a set of lore details that put an end to the lengthy period of silence surrounding it.
Fatesworn's new screenshot gives us a look at an apparently peaceful part of Gale Crossing, which the publisher describes as a formerly "integral stop on the bustling trade route known as the Sativa Road, a treacherous passage over the mountains that brought wealth and industry to a region once considered unlivable."
"After series of catastrophic foreign wars, the price of Sativa Fiber dropped dramatically, devastating the Sativa industry and gutting the region’s importance as a source of this once-valuable reagent. Despite these tragedies, Gale Crossing remains a crucial junction for travelers hoping to pass safely through the Eldrith Mountains," the Steam post continues.
The residents of Gale Crossing had to rely on outsiders in order to survive after its fall, but the dwindling infrastructure made the area difficult to navigate even for merchants considering it as a quicker alternative to shipping their goods by sea.
"High Sativa prices had driven the boom times, funding improvements along the trade route, supplying Gale Crossing and smaller camps with the equipment to support travelers and their teams. Without this money, the mountain passes soon returned to their natural state, deadly and impassable."
This hopefully means that we'll hear more often about Fatesworn and what it offers. According to its Microsoft Store page, it will launch with "5+ hours'" worth of content.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning - Fatesworn is "wrapping up the final stages of production" but does not currently has a set release date.
