The intel comes by way of a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account, as well as a blog post on the publisher’s own website. Feel free to check out said tweet down below:

This recent Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning update is officially dubbed 1.08, and aims to fix a plethora of stability issues and bugs, while boosting the visuals on the PS5 version of the game.

It’s worth noting, however, that the game is currently only playable on PS5 via backwards compatibility. In other words, there’s still no native version of Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning on next-gen consoles as of right now. That all being said, Xbox One X, Xbox Series X|S, and PC versions of the fantasy RPG already currently support native 4K.

For a full breakdown of the latest 1.08 update, go ahead and check out Kingdoms Of Amalur’s specific patch notes down below:

Graphical Glitches:

  • Chest missing the lid fixed.
  • Fae cache glitch fixed.
  • Some other graphic glitches that would project beams through some spaces fixed.
  • Several black areas fixed (those that were looking burned or just pitch black).

Gameplay Fix:

  • It was possible to permanently knock down essential Quest-related NPCs. Example: Garaner Vernt in Canneroc. These would have blocked quest progress. Most of the time those events were triggered by specific timing.
  • Loremaster Achievement fixed.

General Fixes/Improvements:

  • Controller Sensitivity improved.
  • Stability improvements.

PS5-specific:

  • Detection with native 4k resolution support (PC, Xbox One X and Xbox Series already have 4k native).

Our very own Ethan Anderson reviewed the title for Twinfinite at launch and awarded the remaster a 3/5, concluding:

The best parts of Amalur are still intact, but with the caveats of the visual bugs, outdated look, and endless sprinting, you’ll need to keep those rose-colored glasses on for the entire playthrough.
