How to change controls in Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning?

You’re supposed to be able to change them in the settings, like you do in other games. Simply select a command and press the mouse or keyboard button you want assigned to it. It’s not rocket science, right? The tooltips also reflect the changes you’ve made, so you don’t even have to remember the bindings from the start.

Except that it isn’t working for many. We’ve read a number of reports from people who get animation locked after changing the controls – for instance, if they bind the run command where the block command used to be, when they press the button, the game will try to play the animations for both the block and run. The character will end up getting stuck in an uncanny pose, without actually performing any of the two commands.

So what’s the solution? Well, if you’re already stuck, we have no good news for you. You might try resetting the controls to default and loading an earlier save. Apart from that, your only recourse would be to wait for the developers to fix the issue with a patch. It should go without saying that if you haven’t messed with the controls yet, it’s best to avoid doing so.

    I don’t understand why someone put so much effort to game which is clearly unplayable, at least on PC. WASD with camera rotation on another set of keys without use of mouse (other than buttons) was outdated 25 years ago even before windows 95 entered market. For me unplayable, regardless if you can choose another set of keys bc you can’t choose mouse.

    In spite of not being able to remap the key binds I really like this game. I was always a fan of RA Salvatore content and books. Once I went into options and adjusted the field of view out it became easier to move around and control my character. I would love to be able to change the key binds but it’s not a deal breaker for me.
