‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Special and Ultimate Editions Announced

‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Special and Ultimate Editions Announced

Rockstar has told us to expect information regarding special editions of Red Dead 2 later this month, so we've got a long time to plan which to buy before the official release date on 26 October 2018. Now, listings on Games The Shop indicate that both the Red Dead Redemption 2 Special Edition and Ultimate Edition are making it to India. Grand Theft Auto Online players immediately get GTA$500,000.

The Ultimate Edition ($99.99) includes the game and all of the aforementioned Story Mode extras, plus more DLC content, specifically for use in the game's online modes. It does contain a Collectable Challenge Coin, Double Sided 100-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle, Six Shooter Bandana, physical treasure map, a Pin Set, playing cards, Wheeler, Rawson and Co.

Buyers also get a set of playing cards created to commemorate the Van der Linde gang of outlaws.

You can order the game directly through the Rockstar Games website and it is now available for around £54.99.

Anyone who pre-orders the game, physically or digitally, will receive a War Horse and the Outlaw Survival kid.

Take-Two Interactive, the publisher of GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 said that GTA V had sold a total of 90 million units since its release in 2013.




It's not like we needed any more reason to pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 anyway, but Microsoft's slip up has only added fuel to the hype fire for Rockstar's first new game in nearly five years.

After pre-ordering, gamers will receive some items and cash, namely "The War Horse", "The Outlaw Survival Kit", and cash for RDR2 Story Mode, according to Rockstar Intel. The talisman and medallion gameplay bonuses give the player additional bonuses to boost survivability.

The big perks begin flowing in should you splurge for the game's Special Edition.

The Ultimate Edition's added weapons also include the Volcanic Pistol, Pump-Action Shotgun, and Lancaster Varmint Rifle, but you can also get these items for free from Gunsmiths in the online mode.

It also comes in an exclusive steelbook case.

A bonus pre-order treasure map also confirms that the first game's treasure hunts will return in the sequel, joining other returning mechanics like Dead Eye and Honor. Additional equipment, in-game outfits, boosts, horses will also be included.

Differences between physical and digital copies of the same game aren't unheard of, so Rockstar's decision to do this might not come as a surprise for some players.
