Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning gets first gameplay trailer

The PAX gameplay demo trailer for Big Huge Games' upcoming third-person hack-and-slash RPG, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, has been released. In case you haven't been following Reckoning, it's being helmed by Oblivion's lead designer, Ken Rolston, and also features the work of Spawn creator Todd McFarlane. An attractive pedigree, if you ask me.

The developer-narrated video shows off a handful of locations and creatures, but primarily focuses on some examples of how swordplay and magic are used in combat.
