More On: Red Dead Redemption 2

Earlier today on the PlayStation Blog, Sony finally announced what exclusives would be coming to the PlayStation Platform once Red Dead Redemption 2 is released on October 26th and Red Dead Online launches in November.  While the exclusive content was known for some time, and most recently confirmed via the RDR2 PlayStation Pro Bundle box, there hasn't been a formal announcement until today of what it was.

What we now know is that there will be a 30-day timed exclusive on several items within the story mode at game launch and when Red Dead Online launches:

  • Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit – available day one in Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode and at the launch of Red Dead Online
  • Red Chestnut Arabian Horse – available at the launch of Red Dead Online
  • Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle – available at the launch of Red Dead Online
  • High Roller Double-Action Revolver – available at the launch of Red Dead Online
 
You can read the description of the four items after the jump and I can see the benefits of the saddle, horse and gun in Red Dead Online for the first 30 days, assuming there are not more powerful items in the same class.  However these aren't on the same level of exclusivity as when GTA IV launched and Microsoft had exclusive rights to both of the DLCs.

Hi folks! With the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 just weeks away, we wanted to share first details around some of PlayStation’s 30 days early-access content coming to Rockstar Games’ deepest and most expansive world to date.

Both Red Dead Redemption 2 and its multiplayer experience, Red Dead Online, will come with exciting PlayStation 4 benefits right from launch. In Red Dead Redemption 2, PS4 players will be able to customize Arthur Morgan with the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit.

Come November with the launch of Red Dead Online, PS4 players will get 30 days early access to the versatile Arabian horse featuring a custom Alligator skin saddle, and the High Roller double-action revolver. Make sure that you have an active PS Plus subscription so that you can access Red Dead Online and check out these awesome items!

But with October 26 almost upon us, read on for a closer look at PlayStation’s 30 days early access content offering for Red Dead Redemption 2.

Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit – available day one in Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode and at the launch of Red Dead Online

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 – available at the launch of Red Dead Online

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 – available at the launch of Red Dead Online

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 – available at the launch of Red Dead Online

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.

See you October 26!
