Forthcoming EA action RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning sees the next evolutionary step of the online pass, with second hand purchasers locked out of single player content until they cough up for the required passcode.

As reported by Destructoid, an online pass included with new copies of the game in the US offers access to the House of Valor faction quest, which includes seven individual single player missions.

In addition, it'll also unlock a Mass Effect 3-themed in-game item - the N7-inspired Shepard's Battle Armour.

EA declined to comment when asked if the same system will be in place in the European release, currently scheduled for 10th February.
