The pre-order bonuses for Red Dead Redemption 2 have possibly been leaked on the Xbox store. The posting has since been removed, but not before a screen-cap had been posted. According to that post, Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-order bonuses will include GTA$500.000 for GTA Online, the War Horse, a treasure map, and more.
So, pre-orders for Red Dead Redemption 2 have been up for a good several months already. Naturally, those of you that do pre-order the game are going to get your share of rewards for being an early adopter. However, Rockstar hasn’t yet revealed what the pre-order rewards for Red Dead Redemption 2. That is, until a fellow from Resetera going by the name of Simo managed to find a listing on the Xbox store page. The info has since been deleted, but Simo provided the screen-cap. So, let’s see what you can get for your pre-order.
First off, there’s the Outlaw Survival Kit. We have no idea what’s going to be in that kit, but one can assume that it’ll be full of different resources to help you survive in the wild. Next up, there’s the “cash bonus for Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode,” which I’m not at all sure what it entails. Thirdly, the War Horse from the previous game is making a comeback. At least, I assume that’s the case. If it is, then there’s a good chance that that will be the best horse in the game. Whether or not you’ll still be able to earn it by just grinding in-game, we’ll have to wait and see.
The next pre-order reward for RDR 2, strangely enough, isn’t for Red Dead Redemption 2 at all. Instead, it’s for GTA Online; in fact, you’ll get a grand total of 500.000 GTA bucks to spend on whatever the hell you want, immediately after pre-ordering. Last but not least, you’ll get a special treasure map for Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode. However, to get the treasure map, you’ll have to pre-order before July 31st.
If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.
