Kingdoms of Amalur OST out this February

The action RPG's score was composed by Grant Kirkhope and Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

EA and Big Huge Games' upcoming role-playing game, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, will be out on February 7. Potential fans interested in the game's lore and gameplay can also purchase the upcoming soundtrack that is scheduled to be out on the same day.

The game's music was composed by Grant Kirkhope and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Kirkhope's previous acclaims include creating the soundtrack for GoldenEye and Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64, as well as Viva Pinata for the Xbox 360. He states that the music will have two and a half hours of full orchestral score depicting boss battles and small themes for dungeons and cities. "I wanted the score to have a dark fairytale kind of feel that was full of magic and danger."

Enter a realm where swords are two feet taller than you.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an action RPG project featuring Ken Rolston (Elder Scrolls III and IV) as executive designer, Todd McFarlane as artist, and R.A. Salvatore as the world and lore creator. For more information, check out GameSpot's recent coverage on the title.

"Is the demo any good?" is the main question I have. Saw some video of the game play on their website and it looks very promising. Going to download the demo tonight and give it a try before pre-ordering it. The magic spells look really sick and the boss battles are awesome to behold. I'm sure it's not as hard as Dark Souls to play either. That's good for us casual seasoned gamers.

I've spent a lot of time fiddling with the demo. It's not perfect but I think I'm going to like the ful version a lot. Is there not going to be an option to play as a female? What I'm really looking forward to is the upcoming Mass Effect 3 demo..

the demo is pretty amazing! some wonky controls on lockpicking, but otherwise, this is going to devour my free time in the coming months...ruh roh...

Love Viva Pinata's soundtrack. I hope this one delivers.

Perhaps it's because I'm playing Dark Souls at the moment but these visuals really put me off, the terrain looks flat and the visuals are too styalised for me. I'll try the demo and see what I think, gameplay-wise it looks pretty promising.

Really looking forward to this game and now the CD! Do we know if the OST will be available on Amazon and/or iTunes or just the CD?

Usually publishers will at least wait until the game comes out to release the soundtrack... on its own, it doesn't make much sense. I'm much more excited about the demo for this game.

Had no idea Kirkhope was the composer for this (loved his work in Perfect Dark). Sounds like the track will be something to look forward to.
