Pre-order items confirmed

Rockstar Games has confirmed on their official website the pre-order contents for "Red Dead Redemption 2" after it was posted online in the Xbox storefront pre-order listing. The items in the pre-order list include the War Horse, the Outlaw Survival Kit, Cash Bonus in the game's story mode, and an exclusive treasure map.

The War Horse can be used in battle and it has greater courage and stamina compared to a normal horse in the game.

The Outlaw Survival Kit will help players survive the early stages of the game. The in-game cash bonus will help Arthur and the Vander Linde Gang stock up weapons, food, supplies, and more in the story. Lastly, the pre-order treasure map will help players get a head start on finding hidden wealth in the outskirts of the wild west. In addition, for those who have engaged in digital pre-orders of the game in the PlayStation or Xbox stores, they will have an immediate infusion of GTA$ to their Maze accounts in "GTA Online."
