D3Publisher announced earlier that anyone who pre-orders White Knight Chronicles II at GameStop will get a White Knight equipment set which will include a helm, sword and shield. The extra items are intended to make your character look like the White Knight, just without his armor. Also, the set is DLC, so if your PS3 is not connected to the internet, you won't be able to use your pre-order prize.
The extra gear looks good, certainly something worthy of an epic hero. Too bad no equipment stats were included, so it's anyone's guess how good these bonus items will be. Sometimes extra items are great, like Mass Effect 2's M-490 Blackstorm Singularity Projector which shoots black holes, while some are the opposite of great (Red Dead's golden guns anyone?). I hope this bonus falls into the black hole gun category.
