Red Dead Redemption 2’s special editions were teased last month, but we’ve finally been given a peek at what these special editions have to offer. Note “special editions.” There’s not one, but three different versions to choose from.
The first of the three is the Special Edition ($80 in the US), which includes several story mode additions and a physical world map. It includes a bank robbery mission and a gang hideout in story mode; a dappled black thoroughbred horse; talisman and medallion accessories to enhance Arthur’s skills in-game; gameplay boosts, cash bonuses, and discounts; the Nuevo Paraiso Gunslinger outfit; and free access to several weapons: the volcanic pistol, pump action shotgun, and Lancaster varmint rifle.
The Ultimate Edition ($100) includes all of the content from the Special Edition and more. This version tacks on two bonus outfits, the Blackrose Bounty Hunter and Copperhead Enforcer outfits; a black chestnut thoroughbred horse with a high plains cutting saddle; free access to the survivor camp theme; and rank bonuses in online play.
The Collector’s Box ($100) however does not have any digital content, or the game. Instead, it focuses on physical items from the Red Dead universe. Everything included will come in a metal tithing box with a lock and key. It includes a collectible challenger coin; double-sided 100-piece puzzle; Six Shooter bandana; treasure map; pin set; playing cards featuring illustrated versions of Arthur Morgan, John Marston, Javier Escuella, Bill Williamson, and Dutch van der Linde; a replica of the 150-page Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue; and 12 collectible cigarette cards inspired by the ones that can be found in-game.
Both the Special and Ultimate Editions are up for pre-order digitally on the Xbox Store and Playstation Network. Check out the pre-order bonuses here. All three versions, including the Collector’s Box, are available to pre-order on the Rockstar Warehouse. Red Dead Redemption 2 is out on Xbox One and PS4 October 26.
