Red Dead Redemption 2 Box Art

This game was released on October 26, 2018 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-adventure game developed by Rockstar Games. Like its award-winning predecessor, it is set in the Old West, and features an open world the player can roam freely on horseback or on foot. According to Rockstar, RDR 2 is biggest game it has ever created in terms of sheer size.

Time-wise, Red Dead Redemption 2 starts in year 1899 – or about a decade before the events in the previous title – and follows a new protagonist: Arthur Morgan, a member of the notorious Van der Linde gang. After a robbery gone wrong, the gang is forced to free across the rugged heartland of America, with nation’s best bounty hunters and federal agents on their heels.

Pre-order Bonuses

War Horse & Outlaw Survival Kit

All Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-orders, regardless of the platform or version, will receive the following two bonuses for the game’s Story Mode:

  • War Horse: this handsome iron-grey-colored Ardennes War Horse can always be relied on in the heat of the battle. With greater courage and stamina than the average steed, this is a horse that knows how to keep its head under fire.
  • Outlaw Survival Kit: contains a collection of key supplies for enduring the rigors of life on the frontier, including items to replenish Health, Dead Eye and more.

Digital pre-orders through Microsoft Store and PlayStation Store will receive additional incentives on top of those:

  • Cash Bonus for Story Mode: the Van der Linde gang is always looking for ways to make more money and bring in new supplies. This in-game cash bonus will give Arthur Morgan enough to buy a weapon, some food, a handful of useful items and ammunition.
  • Treasure Map (if you pre-purchase by August 15): secret buried treasure can be found throughout the world of Red Dead Redemption 2, and this exclusive map for Story Mode will give Arthur a head start on the hunt for hidden riches.
  • Bonus GTA$500,000 to spend immediately in Grand Theft Auto Online (the bonus can be downloaded by searching for “$500,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online” on Microsoft Store, and will be delivered automatically via PlayStation Store).
