Red Dead Redemption 2

The Xbox pre-order bonuses for Red Dead Redemption II have appeared a bit early, and it’s very good news for GTA Online players.

Before being swiftly removed, the bonuses were listed on the Xbox Store. A user on Restera called Simo has managed to get a few snaps before they were taken down.

The pre-order bonuses are as follows: $500,000 in GTA Online currency, a cash bonus for the story mode, the War Horse steed from the original Red Dead Redemption, and something called the Outlaw Survival Kit.


These bonuses may well be different for the PS4 release of Red Dead Redemption II, because Rockstar has a partnership with PlayStation.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the bonuses may change before the release. This being a leak, there is no word on when the pre-orders will be available.

Rockstar has said that the Special Editions of the game are going to be revealed this month.

The long-awaited sequel is due to be released October 26th for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
