Red Dead Redemption 2 is an award-winning action-adventure game from Rockstar Games. Taking place in 1899 – a decade before the events in the first game – it follows outlaw Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van der Linde gang, as he flees federal agents across the Wild West.
As the game has already been out for consoles since last year, this article concerns specifically the upcoming release for Windows PCs. This version of RDR2 comes with some graphical and technical improvements, new bounty hunting missions and weapons, as well as free access to Red Dead Online. There is also a plethora of bonuses on offer when pre-purchasing from participating retailers or Rockstar directly, as outlined after the jump.
By far the most perks can be had by pre-purchasing Red Dead Redemption 2 directly through the Rockstar Games Launcher. First-off, as a limited-time offer until October 22, you’ll receive two free games of your choice from the following list:
- Grand Theft Auto III
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- Bully: Scholarship Edition
- L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
- Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition
Second, you’ll receive these in-game items, which are reminiscent of those offered as pre-order bonuses for consoles last year:
- Outlaw Survival Kit for Story Mode
- War Horse for Story Mode
- Treasure Map for Story Mode
- Cash Bonus for Story Mode
- 50 Gold Bars for Red Dead Online
Lastly, all pre-purchases will be upgraded to the Special Edition free of charge, and the more expensive Ultimate Edition will be discounted by $20 until launch.
After the exclusivity period ends on October 23, the game will become available for pre-purchase on digital storefronts such as Epic Games, The Humble Store, GameStop, and others. The bonus offered in this case is a bit underwhelming, however, for you’ll only receive 25 Gold Bars for Red Dead Online.
The exception to this is GreenManGaming, which provides a spin on their “Wheel of Credit” resulting in anywhere from $4 to $50 store credit for future purchases.
Red Dead Redemption 2 launches for PC on November 5, 2019. The game will also be available on Steam starting December this year.
