Red Dead Redemption 2’s Pre-Order Bonuses Confirmed
Rockstar recently shared a few more details about Red Dead Redemption 2 ahead of E3 2018, where the open-world game ultimately didn’t make an appearance. In addition to announcing Special and Ultimate editions of the game, the developer has revealed the pre-order bonuses players will receive for reserving the title ahead of its release. Here’s what you can receive.
Everyone who pre-orders a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 will get a pair of DLC “enhancements” for the story mode. First is the War Horse, which Rockstar says has “greater courage and stamina than the average steed.” In addition to that, players will receive an Outlaw Survival Kit, which comes with an assortment of helpful items to replenish health, Dead Eye, and more.
Those who pre-order the game digitally from the PlayStation or Xbox Stores will get an additional assortment of bonuses. That includes an exclusive treasure map that helps locate hidden treasure in story mode, as well as enough in-game money to purchase “a weapon, some food, a handful of useful items, and ammunition.” However, players will need to reserve the game by July 31 in order to get the treasure map.
Finally, everyone who pre-orders the title digitally will get a GTA$ bonus for Grand Theft Auto V’s online mode. The amount of money you’ll receive depends on which edition of the game you pre-order. Those who reserve it on PS4 will have their GTA$ deposited immediately into their GTA Online Maze Bank account, while Xbox One players will have to download the bonus from the Microsoft Store. You can see the amount you’ll get for each version below.
Standard edition — $500,000
Special edition — $1,000,000
Ultimate edition — $2,000,000
Red Dead Redemption 2 launches for PS4 and Xbox One on October 26. Despite being postponed several times already, Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two asserts that the game won’t be delayed again.
