How to claim preorder bonuses in Forspoken!
Forspoken Luminous Productions has arrived and its unlikeable protagonist, Frey, has fallen into the magical world of Athena with nothing but the clothes on her back and a very talkative new bracelet.
Fortunately, you’ll soon be able to equip three different types of equipment to increase stats and other benefits: cloaks, necklaces, and nails (yes, nails). Both cloaks and necklaces can be upgraded throughout your adventure in Athena and platform-exclusive pre-order bonus equipment provides a nice early advantage.
If you’re one of the many gamers who pre-purchased Forspoken for PlayStation 5 or PC, you might be wondering how to claim your awesome rewards. Not all of these pre-ordered exclusives are available at the start of the game, but don’t worry, you’ll get them a few hours early into your journey through Athens.

- Elite Cloak (PS5) or Infinity Cloak (PC)
The Elite Cloak, or No Limits Cloak, if you pre-ordered it on PC, is available shortly after you arrive at Cipal and meet Auden (and her unfriendly friends on the town hall), just over an hour into the main Forspoken story.
Once you’ve unlocked the ability to equip a cloak, simply press the touchpad on your PS5 controller to bring up the game menu, then scroll to the gear menu using the R1 or L1 triggers. Computer players can access this menu by pressing the Tab key.
On the gear screen, select the cloak menu and you should see the Elite Cloak (or No Limits Cloak) along with the default Hooded Cloak option.

The screws are unlocked shortly after in Fry’s flight, when they enter the guild to search for Oden’s father’s journals during the “Father’s Findings” objective. When you collect Breakshards for the first time, you will be tasked with painting your nails to get various improvements.
The new Nails menu, found right after the Gear option in the game’s main menu, is where you’ll find the exclusive pre-order design. Each hand can be drawn with a different design.
