EA have announced the different pre-order bonuses you can expect for 38 Studios’ Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, of which are listed below:

  • The Destinies Choice Pack: Offers a unique “Twist of Fate” card to enhance the beginning of your gameplay experience, the Compass of Fate and three unique armor sets. Each armor set is tailored to a specific class which players will define and redefine during their time in Amalur.
  • The Fate-Touched Weapons Pack: Players can enter battle as fully prepared as ever with an arsenal of rare Fate-Touched weapons including a longbow, hammer, staff, faeblades, daggers, scepter, chakrams, longsword and greatsword. The weapons will help satisfy every player’s combat style with Reckoning’s on-the-fly weapon swapping in combat to take down even the most dreadful of foes.
  • The Ultimate Treasure Hunter Pack: For treasure hunters who will dive into every nook and cranny in the world of Amalur, the Dowsing Rod will seek out all reagents for concocting potions on your in-game map. A worthy companion tool for any adventurer, the Dowsing Rod will help players get the most out of their alchemy skill.

Full details on who’ll be offering what has yet to be announced.

Kingdoms of Amalur is an open-world RPG for Xbox 360 and PS3, with a story penned by Fantasy author R. A. Salvatore, art created by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and the project lead is Ken Rolston, who has had past involvement in the Elder Scrolls series. There’s quite a bit of talent working on the game, then.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is due for release on February 10th in Europe.
