Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4
The release of a new Rockstar games is always a massive happening, and it's no different with the new Red Dead Redemption. Remember all the way back in 2010 when the first Red Dead Redemption came out for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 (with the Xbox 360 version now playable on Xbox One X with improved graphics)?
Red Dead Redemption 2: Standard Edition, Special Edition, Ultimate Edition and Collector’s Box
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available in three different versions offering extra in-game content and there’s also a third package that consists solely of physical items themed to the game. On top of that, specific stores will have extra content.
All pre-orders will receive two free pieces of bonus content for the story mode regardless of edition. You get the War Horse, which bears greater courage and stamina than the average steed according to Rockstar. You also get the Outlaw Survival Kit, which comes with items that refill your stat meters.
The Special Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 features a long list of content for the story mode, such as a mission, horse, outfit, weapons and gameplay bonuses. Getting the Ultimate Edition will get you a bunch of content for the game’s online component which including weapons, costumes and a progression bonus on top of everything you find in the special edition. Both Special Edition and Ultimate Edition come with a physical World Map and a slip cover. The Ultimate Edition comes with an cool looking steel book.
The Red Dead Redemption 2 Collector’s Box is a funny one, it doesn’t contain the game itself - although various retailers sell the game with the collector’s box and reduce the overall price. The Collector’s Box comes with a treasure map, double sided jigsaw puzzle, 12 cards, collectible coin, six shooter bandana, playing cards, pin set and a weapon(?) catalogue. All of this comes packaged in a metal Red Dead Redemption 2 themed box.
