Red Dead Redemption 2 Huge Download Size and PS4 Exclusive Content Details Revealed
Earlier this week, Sony unveiled their new Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Pro bundle, which is on sale now at Amazon, Walmart, and all the other big online retailers. Interestingly, some of the listings for the RDR2 PS4 Pro bundle include a shot of the back of the box, which includes some info Rockstar Games hasn’t made official just yet. Check out the telltale box art, below (click on image for full resolution).
So, a few interesting things to be gleaned from the box, starting with…
“Select online content” PS4 exclusive for 30 days: We already knew the PS4 was getting some timed-exclusive content, but now we know how long the exclusivity window lasts. It could be worse, Xbox owners won’t be waiting months like they do for Destiny content, but these kind of deals remain frustrating.
Online play supports 2 to 32 players: Rockstar has revealed Red Dead Redemption 2’s online component will be an “evolution” of the multiplayer mode from the previous game, but we didn’t know exactly how many players it would support. Seems Rockstar is keeping things modest with only 32 players – no battle royale mode here!
Clear some hard drive space, because RDR2 is a huge download: According to Sony, you’re going to need at least 105GB of space for the game, and that doesn’t even take into account a day-one patch or any other downloads. Dang.
While we’re poring over the back of the RDR2 PS4 Pro bundle, here’s a bit of information about the game’s PS4 Pro enhancements…
On PS4 Pro, 4K HDR TV owners will benefit from enhanced graphics and optimized performance for a stunningly sharp and detailed look (when compared to a PS4 system), as you live, ride and fight to survive as an outlaw in a notorious gang. HD TV owners will benefit from increased image clarity through the PS4 Pro’s Supersampling Mode (you can turn on Supersampling Mode in the PS4 Pro system settings menu). Meanwhile, if your TV supports high-dynamic range (HDR), you’ll experience the picturesque scenery of Red Dead Redemption 2 with an even more vibrant and dynamic range of colors (HDR features also available on PS4 system).
