RDR2 Pre-Order Available Now on Xbox & PlayStation Store, Featuring Standard, Special and Ultimate Editions
Last Saturday, the Xbox Store had leaked the pre-order details and bonuses of Red Dead Redemption 2's Standard Edition. However, the pre-order button was actually greyed out and the content was quickly removed.
Today, the pre-orders just went live on both Xbox and PlayStation digital stores. In addition to RDR2's Standard Edition, there are two Special and Ultimate editions.
Here's what the RDR2 Special Edition, priced at $79.99, will have to offer over the Standard Edition.
STORY MODE CONTENT
Bank Robbery Mission & Gang Hideout in Story Mode: Get exclusive access to a Bank Robbery Mission, in which Arthur and a couple of his fellow gang members come up with a daring plan to break in and rob the bank in the southern town of Rhodes. Elsewhere, the Del Lobos Gang has taken over a hacienda - clear this gang’s hideout and rob their stash for a lucrative take.
Dappled Black Thoroughbred: This thoroughbred racehorse sporting a beautiful reverse-dappled black coat will keep you at the front of the pack with its exceptional speed and acceleration. Plus get the exclusive Nuevo Paraiso Saddle, handmade in dark chocolate leather with silver medallion detailing. This horse and saddle are available in Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode.
Talisman and Medallion Gameplay Bonuses: These special Story Mode items will give Arthur a helping hand whenever they are equipped. Attaching the Eagle Talon Talisman to his boot, Arthur’s environmental awareness skill will last longer. By carrying the Iguana Scale in his personal Satchel, Arthur will take less damage while riding on horseback.
Gameplay Boosts, Cash Bonuses & Discounts: A collection of exclusive Story Mode boosts, bonuses and discounts. The Core Stat boost benefits Arthur’s Stamina, Health and Dead Eye Cores.
