Red Dead Redemption 2 - Release Date, Special Editions and Trailers
Red Dead Redemption 2 is just on the horizon—no, seriously we're exactly four months away from the October 26 release date—so let's take a look at what we know so far.
We have three different special editions—the Special Edition, Ultimate Edition, and the Collector’s Box. Not to mention three separate trailers, let's take a look.
The Special Edition, priced at $79.99, is the step up from their standard release. It includes story mode content extras like the Dappled Black Thoroughbred horse, outfits, gameplay boosts, missions, cash bonuses, and discounts. Physically, you will also get an exclusive world map and a slipcover for your copy of the game.
The Ultimate Edition, priced at $99.99, includes all the previously mentioned content, but will also feature some multiplayer bonuses. These include bonus outfits, rank bonuses, a mount and free access to additional weapons. Instead of the slipcover for your game, players will receive the steel-book version.
The Collector’s Box, also priced at $99.99, doesn’t actually include any digital content nor the game itself. Instead, it focuses solely on items from the Red Dead world. Customers will get a plethora of physical items locked away in a metal tithing box. After unlocking it with the provided key, you will find a 100-piece double-sided puzzle, a challenger coin, a bandanna, a treasure map, a pin set, a set of playing cards of in-game characters, a replica of the 150-page Wheeler, Rawson, and Co. Catalogue, and 12 cigarette collectible cards, which can also be found in-game.
Both the Special and Ultimate Editions are available for digital pre-order on the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store, and at the Rockstar Warehouse. The Collector’s Box is only available for pre-order at the Rockstar Warehouse.
Here are all the trailers released for the game so far:
