Amalur: Reckoning's Online Pass Locks Singleplayer Levels

Offline Game Gets Online Pass

Okay. So this is happening.

D'Toid reports that Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, the anticipated RPG from Big Huge Games, ships with an online pass. This was no great surprise since we knew that the Mass Effect N7 Armour would be included as an unlockable bonus, but it also appears that an entire 7-level questline has been locked off as well. We're not actually sure what to make of this one at the moment - because it's either an acceptable substitute for launch DLC that makes more sense than Arkham City's outrageous content splurge... or an unconscionable, grasping, chiselling precedent that shafts a vast swathe of gamers including those who just don't want to connect their consoles to the internet.

What percentage of the online pass revenue will go directly to Big Huge Games, we wonder?

Great, well that's saved me buying another game then. So fed up of developers doing this to their fans now.
