Good news: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning PC demo is out now – Bad news: It’s available only via Origin

Oh boy, here we go again. We were delighted to hear that the PC version of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning would be receiving a demo. However, we didn’t know that it would be distributed, exclusively, via EA’s Origin service. So, those interested in giving a go to 38 Studios’ upcoming action RPG will have to install EA’s distribution service. We know that some of you hate Origin, so there you have it; you’ve been warned.
All others, that want to try this demo, will have to download Origin, create an Origin account, log-in, choose the Store tab, then click on ‘Free Games’ and click on the demo of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
Took it a while, but Steam has also posted the demo and can be found here. We don’t know why it was only available via Origin – exclusivity for a couple of hours perhaps or Valve being lazy? But who cares, right? Enjoy everyone!
