Pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 and you’ll get a bundle of bonus bits and pieces, including $500k of in-game money to spend in Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto Online.
It’s a neat play for GTAO users – encouraging them to pay up now for immediate reward, before transitioning them over to the inevitable Red Dead Online come November.
Pre-order customers will also get an Outlaw Survival Kit, whatever that contains, and The War Horse – a legendary steed which was also a DLC unlock in the original Red Dead Redemption.
The War Horse was arguably the best mount in the game – so much so that owning it completely negated the need to buy any other. It had very high stamina and speed – and it also looked rather nice, too.
The pre-order bonuses were spotted – briefly – on the Xbox store by Resetera user Simo, although they have since been removed.
A prequel to the original game, Red Dead Redemption 2 is due to launch this November for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
