Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Timed-Exclusive Content Shown Off In Trailer
Take a look at the items PS4 players will have access to first.
As with a number of big-name games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Destiny 2, Red Dead Redemption 2 will get some timed-exclusive content on PS4. A couple of items for the main game and its online component, Red Dead Online, will be available on Sony's console 30 days before they arrive on Xbox One. Now, the developer has shown them off in a new trailer.
The video, which you can watch below, showcases three Red Dead Redemption 2 items that PS4 players will have access to before their Xbox One counterparts. First is the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit, a "slick but rugged look" that Rockstar says is "perfect for exploring the forests of Ambarino." The outfit will be available from the start both in the main game and Red Dead Online.
Additionally, PS4 players will have early access to a special horse and gun in Red Dead Online: the Red Chestnut Arabian Horse--which comes outfitted with the health- and stamina-boosting Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle--and the High Roller Double Action Revolver. You can read more about the items on the PlayStation Blog.

As of now, these are the only three timed-exclusive Red Dead items that Rockstar has announced, but the trailer suggests that other timed-exclusive content for Red Dead Online is on the way. Red Dead Online will launch as a beta in November, roughly a month after the main game releases, although we still don't know too much about it. However, Rockstar warns players to expect some teething problems when the beta first begins.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One. The game is available in several editions that come with some bonus items; you can read more in our Red Dead Redemption 2 buyer's guide.
GameSpot awarded it a 9/10 in our Red Dead 2 review, writing, "Red Dead Redemption 2 is an excellent prequel, but it's also an emotional, thought-provoking story in its own right, and it's a world that is hard to leave when it's done."
