Free Red Dead Redemption 2 Item For PS4

Red Dead for life.


Rockstar's massive open-world western has arrived on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But it's PS4 owners who can make out like a bandit, whether they've bought the game or not. You can now download a free Red Dead Redemption 2 item from the PlayStation Store. It's the Red Dead Redemption 2 dynamic theme, and it decks out your PS4's dashboard with RDR 2 music and moving images.

You can add the theme to your account by clicking the link above, or by searching for it in the PlayStation Store on your PS4. Once you've downloaded it to your console, go to the PS4's Settings menu, then Theme Settings, and find the theme to apply it. Now your whole PS4 experience is drenched in Red Dead hype.

As for the game itself, it's just as enormous, detailed, and impressive as you'd expect from a premier Rockstar title. Set in 1899, it's a prequel to the previous game, showing the events that led up to the Van der Linde gang's splitting up. Instead of controlling John Marston as you did in Red Dead Redemption, you play as Arthur Morgan, one of the top men in the gang. You can read our Red Dead Redemption 2 review to find our full thoughts on the game.

We have loads of RDR2 coverage for you to check out, including whether you can play the sequel without playing the first one, how long it takes to beat, and all the cheats we've found. And in case you're wondering how the different versions of the game compare, you can take a look at it running on PS4 vs. Xbox One.
