Kingdoms of Amalur pre-order treats

Reckoning they're quite nice.

Pre-order Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the promising EA RPG-with-a-comic-book-bent, and you'll get useful in-game items, weapons or armour.

A Destinies Choice Pack has a Twist of Fate card (enhances beginning of game), a Compass of Fate and three armour sets, each for a specific class.

The Fate-Touched Weapons Pack contains various "rare" Fate-Touched weapons: a longbow, a hammer, a staff, faeblades, daggers, scepters, chakrams, a longsword and a greatsword.

The Ultimate Treasure Hunter Pack has a Dowsing Rod that will seek out reagents to help you brew potions with.

Which shops offer which of these pre-order packs is still being worked out.

Kingdoms of Amalur is the action-packed but sprawling RPG being made by 38 Studios and EA. Much has been made of the names associated with the project: Ken Rolston (designer, Oblivion, Morrowind), R. A. Salvatore (best-selling author) and Todd McFarlane (creator of comic Spawn).

The results so far show potential, wrote Eurogamer in its Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning preview. Certainly, EA has done itself a favour by putting daylight between the launch of Reckoning and genre mega-weight Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
