The launches of Red Dead Redemption 2 and its delayed Red Dead Online multiplayer experience will both come with timed-exclusive content for PlayStation 4 players.
Announced on the official PlayStation Blog, there are four pieces of content PlayStation 4 players will get 30 days before anyone else. The content includes the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit, a Red Chestnut Arabian Horse, an Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle, and a High Roller Double-Action Revolver.
The Outlaw outfit will be available for the single-player on launch day and for multiplayer when the servers go live next month, but all of the other content is being held until the multiplayer goes live. It isn’t entirely clear if the non-outfit content will be exclusive to Red Dead Online, but that’s how it looks. The PlayStation Blog descriptions for each piece of content can be found below.
Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit – A slick but rugged look, the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit is perfect for exploring the forests of Ambarino. Featuring a wool-lined, long coat with custom, hand-tooled leather accents, a leather vest with ornate pattern details, stand wing-tip collar with black neckerchief, and custom ornate buckle with matching boot tips, the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit pays homage to the “boss” of the Northern States, its real-world inspiration.
Red Chestnut Arabian Horse – Known for its speed and handling, the Red Chestnut Arabian Horse is in a class above most horses you would find in the wild, with performance a step up from the first tier of available horses.
Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle – In addition to its stylish look, the Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle provides a number of benefits when equipped including core Health and Stamina boosts, which increase speed and acceleration for the horse. This saddle is an enhanced version of the basic saddle that comes stock for players when starting Red Dead Online.
High Roller Double-Action Revolver – Looks could kill: The High Roller Double-Action Revolver features a polished steel body with unique period-inspired, beautifully detailed engraving work. The deadly, quick draw revolver comes complete with unique playing card and skull elements carved into the grip. Its superior, quick rate of fire over all other revolvers makes it a great choice for mounted combat.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to launch October 26th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In other Red Dead news, the sequel’s map will reportedly contain the entirety of the first game’s open world. That’d be hard to believe for most games, but for Red Dead Redemption 2, we can see it.
