'Red Dead Redemption 2' has a fancy special edition without the game

'Red Dead Redemption 2' has a fancy special edition without the game

Red Dead Redemption 2 is still the biggest title of the year, and any new sliver of information is enough to break the internet with a hearty "Yee-haw!". Must pre-order by July 31, 2018.

The extras aren't anything especially revealing, but then it is only a pre-order bonus and we're yet to see what will be included in the inevitable collector's edition.

According to the now removed listing, included with Microsoft Store pre-orders of Red Dead Redemption 2 are several small pieces of DLC.

Lastly, the Red Dead Redemption 2: Collector's Box, which is available exclusively from select retailers and the Rockstar Warehouse, features a curated assortment of outlaw essentials all packaged in a thick metal tithing box. It also says this edition includes all of the Story Mode content from the Special Edition. "For those pre-ordering digitally through the Microsoft Store on Xbox, this GTA$ bonus can be downloaded by searching for the requisite amount associated with your specific pre-order ("$500,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online" for Standard Edition digital pre-orders, "$1,000,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online" for Special Edition digital pre-orders, and "$2,000,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online" for Ultimate Edition digital pre-orders) on the Microsoft Store.

Pin Set: This set of six individual pins includes representations of key weapons from Red Dead Redemption 2 including a shotgun, revolver and Dead Eye "X" marker.

Dappled Black Thoroughbred: This racing stallion has speed and acceleration and comes with the Nueve Paraiso Saddle. Rockstar promised more information on "Special Editions" would be released this month. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive.

Ticket sales brisk as Lotto Max reaches largest jackpot ever

In the meantime, he plans on working on his family foundation, and writing a book about the social responsibility companies have. The company also long projected itself as a socially conscious company and promoted its stores as neighborhood gathering places.

Free Access to Additional Weapons: Get access to the Volcanic Pistol, Pump Action Shotgun and Lancaster Varmint Rifle, free of charge from Gunsmiths in online. The Ultimate Edition will also give players access to the online Survivor Camp Theme, access to even more weapons and rank bonuses so that Ultimat players can rank up faster, up to rank 25.

The fact that one extra is just free money in GTA Online is curious though, as you could infer that to mean that Red Dead Redemption II doesn't have any equivalent of its own. Though it's set at $99.99 United States dollars, this collector's box doesn't include a copy of the game, so you'll have to buy it separately.

And if you pre-order the game in digital format you also get...

Thanks to a digital faux pas on Microsoft's part, the pre-order details for Rockstar's upcoming open world western have gone live on the Xbox Store, revealing exactly what you'll get if you purchase the sequel in advance of its October 28 release date, later this year.
