Much to the chagrin of some, Red Dead Redemption 2 does feature (timed) exclusive content for the Playstation 4. Sony and Rockstar today revealed some of the exclusives PS4 owners can expect come October 26th.
The Playstation Blog revealed that the first item, the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit will be available for use in the story mode at the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2. The other two items announced today, the Chesnut Arabian Horse, Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Sattle, and High Roller Double-Action Revolver will all be available at the launch of Red Dead Online in November exclusive to Playstation for 30 days.
While none of these items are ground breaking, it could set a precedent going forward for other platform exclusive items and that is a road that some fear could lead to an anti-consumer nightmare.
Full descriptions of the items are below. Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26th, 2018 for Xbox One and Playstation 4.
Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit
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
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
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
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.
