Rockstar has unveiled a full list of pre-order bonuses and Special Edition, Ultimate Edition, and Collector’s Box details for Red Dead Redemption 2.
All pre-orders ship with the War House, a returning steed from the previous Red Dead game with increased stats. This horse is the real deal and you won’t really need to buy another horse for the entirety of your play through. Also included is The Outlaw Survival Kit containing ‘key supplies for enduring the rigors of life on the frontier, including items to replenish Health, Dead Eye and more’.
In addition to the above, digital pre-orders from PlayStation and Xbox stores also get a cash bonus to spruce up your arsenal and supplies from day one, and an exclusive treasure map leading to multiple treasures scattered throughout the game. The only caveat to receive these rewards is the pre-order must be made before July 31st.
Each digital pre-order also includes a non-Red Dead Redemption 2 bonus as in-game GTA Online cash, which can be spent immediately. GTA$500,000 for the Standard Edition, GTA$1,000,000 for the Special Edition, and GTA$2,000,000 when you grab the Ultimate Edition.
The Special Edition includes all of the above as well as a bunch of extra story mode content in the form of extra Bank Robbery and Gang Hideout missions. There’s also an extra steed, the speedy Dappled Black Thoroughbred and an exclusive saddle. This edition also ships with bonus providing items and a selection of stat boosts, extra cash bonuses for completed missions, and discounted upgrades among others. An extra outfit and free extra weapons are included as well. The game also arrives with an exclusive world map.
The Ultimate Edition includes all the Special Edition goodies as well as two extra outfits, a thoroughbred, a survivor camp theme and extra guns in online mode, and faster ranking as well.
For the ultimate fan, the Collector’s Box offers a trove of Red Dead inspired real-world collectibles all shipped in a metal tithing box with a lock and a key. Inside the box is a collectable challenge coin, a 100-piece double sided jigsaw puzzle, 12 illustrated cigarette cards mimicking those found in-game, a deck of playing cards adorned with the faces of the games key characters, the same high-quality printed treasure map found in the Special Edition, a bandana, a 150-page Wheeler, Rawson and Co. catalogue recreation of the one found in-game, and a six-piece pin set depicting weapons from the game. The Collector’s Box is only available from exclusive retailers and on the Rockstar Warehouse site.
