Electronic Arts (EA) has announced the first downloadable content (DLC) pack for its recently released RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

 
The additional game content, entitled Legend of Dead Kel, gives players access to a huge new continent called Gallows End, adding over 15 percent more landscape to the game, with tons of new quests and side quests to keep players busy. There's also many new enemies, a new dungeon type called Dverga Fastings, and dozens of new items to kit out your characters.
 
The add-on also opens up what EA is calling “the ultimate player housing.” Users don't just get a little hut to store their belongings, but rather a huge estate with several buildings and many servants who even have their own side quests.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning launched earlier this month in Europe and North America to some rave reviews. With a story developed by author R.A. Salvatore and the game's artwork influenced by Todd McFarlane, creator of Spawn, developer 38 Studios has brought on some heavyweights to make this a successful and enjoyable game.
 
Downloadable content has become a new way to expand a game without going all out with an expansion pack, borrowing from the regular updates users see in massively multiplayer online (MMO) games. Not only does this method save the company money on packaging a new title, it can give a constant stream of revenue.
 
The Legend of Dead Kel DLC pack will be available on 20 March on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, Origin and Steam.
