The PS4 version of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be receiving a 30 day head start on a few items. Before you whip yourself into a console war frenzy, hold your horses. The items are nice to have, but, unless I am missing something, it won’t make a huge difference over time. Let’s dig into the details.
There are four different items. First, we have the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit for the cowboy who wants to look dapper while retaining that just rode 200 miles look. It has a long leather coat with wool lining for those cold nights and a black neckerchief for anonymity during an impromptu robbery. Perfect for the outlaw on the go.
What would a person be without their horse? The Red Chestnut Arabian Horse is better than the standard horse you receive at the beginning of the game. It comes equipped with the Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle which increases your horse’s health and stamina.
Finally, the High Roller Double-Action Revolver can fire off a round or six faster than any other revolver, but it’s not just a tool to keep you alive and make others dead. It has intricate engraving on the body and handle, allowing you to look your best as you rob that bank or intimidate innocents for some ill-gotten gains.
Only the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit is available for the story mode at launch. The rest of the items will be available when Red Dead Online launches in November. As you can see, they are all very nice, but it will probably not make the biggest difference in your game.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of our most anticipated and most discussed games of the year. With a highly-detailed, large world to explore, we look forward to shooting, robbing, and skinning our way through parts of the Old West when the game rides off into the sunset and onto our hard drive on October 26th.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
