PS4's Red Dead Redemption 2 Timed-Exclusive Content Announced
PS4 players will get access to certain items 30 days early.
We recently learned that Red Dead Redemption 2's PS4-exclusive content will be available on Sony's console 30 days early, but now we've gotten a look at what some of those items are. In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony revealed four pieces of content that PS4 players will receive before Xbox One owners, including an outfit for protagonist Arthur Morgan and a special horse.
First, PS4 players will get the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit, which is described as "a slick but rugged look" that's "perfect for exploring the forests of Ambarino." The outfit will be available from the outset in the main game and at launch in Red Dead Redemption 2's online component, Red Dead Online, when that beta kicks off next month.
In addition to that, PS4 players will have early access to the Red Chestnut Arabian Horse, a special steed that's "a class above most horses you would find in the wild." They'll also get the Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle, which bestows your horse with health and stamina boosts, as well as the High Roller Double Action Revolver.
All three of the aforementioned items will be available for PS4 players in Red Dead Online at launch, while the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit will be available in both Red Dead Online and the main game. As was the case with Grand Theft Auto V's online mode, Red Dead Online is coming a month after Red Dead Redemption 2 launches. Rockstar hasn't announced an exact release date for the online mode yet, but the company warns there may be some teething issues when the beta first begins.
Red Dead Redemption 2 releases for PS4 and Xbox One on October 26. The game will be available in a number of different editions; you can learn more about them in our Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-order guide.
