We’re not far away from the October 26 launch of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 and today the official PlayStation Blog revealed a new video showing what will be arriving on day one for PS4 users. Three of the four items below will be Red Dead Online exclusive so players will need to ensure they have an active PS Plus subscriptions in order to receive them.
The first item we see is the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit that will be available to use in both the story mode of Red Dead Redemption 2 and in Red Dead Online. This outfit pays homage to the “boss” of the Northern States and is detailed as follows:
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
A Red Chestnut Arabian Horse will be available when Red Dead Online launches and will allow players to ride with speed and handling that outperforms most other horses available in the world. There is also an Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle that will be available in Red Dead Online and will improve core health and boost stamina, thus improving the speed and acceleration of the horse.
Also available on the launch of Red Dead Online is a High Roller Double-Action Revolver. This not only looks wonderful with its engraving and polished steel but it comes with a unique playing card and skull elements carved into the grip. Of course, it also has a high rate of fire.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available to pre-load now if you’ve pre-ordered the title digitally. For PS4 users it’ll require 99GB of installation space with an additional 50GB for the installation process. If you missed it, you can watch the launch trailer here, and if you do want to pre-order it ahead of release you can head over to Amazon and do so.
