Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online goodies will come early to PlayStation 4 users. At launch, gamers on PS4 can outfit protagonist Arthur Morgan with his Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit. When Red Dead Online goes live in November 2018, players can take Arthur’s Grizzlies Outlaw garb along for the ride.
The Red Dead Online launch will feature other early access items for PS4 players, as well. Thirty days ahead of everyone else, the PlayStation audience can access the Arabian horse, which comes equipped with a “custom Alligator skin saddle.” A high roller double-action revolver is also part of the early access content.
On the PlayStation Blog, each of the aforementioned items were detailed as follows:
Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit (Available in Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Story Mode at Launch and at Red Dead Online‘s Launch)
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 (Available at Red Dead Online‘s Launch)
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 (Available at Red Dead Online‘s Launch)
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 (Available Red Dead Online‘s Launch)
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.
Rockstar Games has yet to specify when Red Dead Online will go live in November 2018. However, we know its initial launch is scheduled to come in the form of a public beta. If you love GTA Online’s offerings, you’re bound to enjoy what Rockstar has in store for Red Dead Online.
