Sony has unveiled the first round of details about the PlayStation 4 30 day timed-exclusive content for Red Dead Redemption 2 in a short PlayStation.Blog post published late yesterday.
The timed-exclusive applies to both Red Dead Redemption 2 single player and Rockstar’s multiplayer project set in the same open-world aptly named Red Dead Online. As expected the content is limited to cosmetic items, which have no fundamental bearing on how the game is played, but are rather a surface level bonus for PlayStation 4 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription.
First up, we have the ability to adorn Arthur Morgan with the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit, which is an outdoors-man’s dream of rugged leather and wool. The kit should fair well in more inhospitable climes where Grizzlies are found and consists of a long coat, vest, belt buckle, boot tips, and collar for an all round cohesive look. The Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit is available when the game launches on October 26th.
Next up, we have a series of items available when Red Dead Online launches in November. The versatile Red Chestnut Arabian Horse is a steed known for its responsiveness and swiftness, outshining any horse you can tame out in the wild and better than the base level of horses on sale throughout the world.
The next offering is the Alligator Ranch Cutter Saddle, a suave looking saddle with bonuses to the health, stamina, speed, and acceleration of your chosen horse. Finally, we have the High Roller Double-Action Revolver, a quick draw handgun favored for its fire rate and ornate details such as engravings, grip, and unique look.
To say the early access items are underwhelming is somewhat of an understatement. We weren’t expecting the moon, but the PlayStation 4 exclusives feels rather light and we hope Sony and Rockstar can cook up something a little more substantial moving forward.
