It is a remaster of the 2012 Action-RPG published by Electronic Arts and developed by 38 Studios. THQ Nordic had bought the rights to it a few years back. According to the official description it had the minds of R.A.

The title sets to bring “stunning visuals and refined gameplay” in this remaster.
The title will also include all the DLC from the original release, ranging from Teeth of Naros to Legend of Dead Kei. It promises hundreds of hours of RPG gameplay, with secrets of Amalur to uncover.
