Rockstar Games Reveals Three Premium Editions for Red Dead Redemption 2; Digital Pre-Order Bonuses Announced

Red Dead Redemption 2 will be getting a variety of special editions and pre-order bonuses ahead of its release, including a Western-themed Collector's Box.

As one of the most anticipated games of the fall, Red Dead Redemption 2 is easily on track to be a top seller in the later half of the year, and now Rockstar Games has officially pulled back the curtain on several editions of the game that will arrive with its launch and what to expect when pre-ordering the game.

Rockstar Games has announced all of the premium editions and pre-order details for the highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 ahead of its release this fall, with the game to get several premium editions and a selection of extra goods if you pre-order now.

Aside from the game’s standard edition, Rockstar will be offering three premium editions of Red Dead Redemption 2, starting with the Special Edition for $79.99. The Special Edition will include two additional missions — a Bank Robbery and Gang Hideout — along with the Dappled Black Thoroughbred, the Nuevo Paraiso Gunslinger Outfit, Talisman and Medallion Gameplay Bonuses, a selection of Gameplay Boosts and Cash Bonuses in Story Mode, and several additional Weapons in Story Mode. This edition (at retail) will include a special slipcover and a copy of the game’s world map.

The Ultimate Edition, which retails for $99.99, will include all of the previous offerings from the Special Edition plus two Bonus Outfits, the Black Chestnut Thoroughbred, a Survivor Camp Theme for the game’s online mode, and additional weapons for the game’s Online Mode. Purchases also include a Rank Bonus for the game’s Online Mode that will allow players to rank up more quickly up to Rank 25. This edition (at retail) will also come with the world map and an exclusive SteelBook case.

Finally, Rockstar will also be offering the Red Dead Redemption Collector’s Box, which will be available exclusively at retail and Rockstar’s Warehouse store page that is contained in a Western-style metal tithing box, and retails for $99.99, though it does not come with a copy of the game itself.

Inside the Collector’s Box, purchasers will get a variety of collectibles that will delight fans of the series, as the Collector’s Box includes items like a Six Shooter Bandana, a Treasure Map, a Pin Set, Playing Cards, and even a double-sided puzzle that seems certain to ignite the sensation of being in the Wild West.

Every edition of the game’s digital pre-orders will include a cash bonus for Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Story Mode, alongside a few extras: the War Horse, the Outlaw Survival Kit with several in-game bonuses, and a Treasure Map that will help guide the player toward hidden stashes of riches in the game world.

As an added incentive, all digital pre-orders for Red Dead Redemption 2 will also include a bonus for GTA Online in the form of additional GTA$: the standard version will gift players with $500K, the Special Edition with $1M, and the Ultimate Edition with $2M.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will release for PS4 and Xbox One on October 26th, 2018. For a closer look at the game’s Special Edition offerings, you can look at the images below. Additionally, you can pre-order the game through Amazon before its release this coming fall.
