Red Dead Redemption 2 Pre-Order Bonuses Revealed

Rockstar has shared a few more details about Red Dead Redemption 2 ahead of E3 2018. 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.

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. We’ll learn more about the anticipated title very soon at E3, but in the meantime, you can catch up on everything we know about Red Dead Redemption 2.

Dragon Quest XI hands-on charming and simple maybe too simple | VB

Mike Minotti: “I love Japanese role-playing games. Ive played Final Fantasy, Suikoden, Trails in the Sky, Persona, and more. But Ive never gotten into Dragon Quest. Ive had some false starts. I got a few hours into Dragon Quest IX when it came out for the DS in 2010. But I just cant get into the series. But last month, during a pre-E3 event in Santa Monica, I got to play Dragon Quest XI for the PlayStation 4, which is coming out in the U.S. for that platform and PC on September 4.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 Special Editions Revealed, Up For Pre-Order

Red Dead Redemption 2‘s special editions were teased last month, but we’re finally getting a peek at what these special editions have to offer. Note “special editions.” There’s not one, but three different versions to choose from.

The Ultimate Edition includes all of the content from the Special Edition and more. This version tacks on two bonus outfits, the Blackrose Bounty Hunter and Copperhead Enforcer outfits; a black chestnut thoroughbred horse with a high plains cutting saddle; free access to the survivor camp theme; and rank bonuses in online play.

The Collector’s Box however does not have any digital content, or the game. Instead, it focuses on physical items from the Red Dead universe. Everything included will come in a metal tithing box with a lock and key. It includes a collectible challenger coin; double-sided 100-piece puzzle; Six Shooter bandana; treasure map; pin set; playing cards featuring illustrated versions of Arthur Morgan, John Marston, Javier Escuella, Bill Williamson, and Dutch van der Linde; a replica of the 150-page Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue; and 12 collectible cigarette cards inspired by the ones that can be found in-game.

Both the Special and Ultimate Editions are up for pre-order digitally on the Xbox Store and Playstation Network. All three, including the Collector’s Box, are available to pre-order on the Rockstar Warehouse. Red Dead Redemption 2 is out on Xbox One and PS4 October 26.
