Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of my most wanted games of 2018, actually, I would say that it is only second to God Of War, which is awesome by the way. Rockstar has officially unveiled the special edition of Red Dead Redemption 2, actually, make that editions as there are three to choose from!
Red Dead Redemption 2 The Special Edition
This is the most basic and cheapest of the three special editions and it is currently listed for 80 bucks. You get quite a lot of in-game content with this such as extra story missions, a horse, extra accessories and access to a bunch of weapons as well. It seems like you are getting a lot for your money, but the coolest part of this is that there is also a cloth map of the game. I love getting physical stuff in my special editions and if anything, the map is what I would buy this for.
Red Dead Redemption 2 The Ultimate Edition
This costs 100 bucks (as of writing) and you get all of the content that you get with the special edition. This does include that awesome cloth map. The extras that you get include things like two extra outfits, a horse, and bonuses for the online game mode. I will admit that the campaign is what I am most interested in with Red Dead 2 so I have not really been paying much attention to the multiplayer, but I am not sure what they are offering here is worth that extra 20 bucks. But if you are into it then good for you and I am sure those extra multiplayer items will come in handy.
Red Dead Redemption 2 The Collectors Box
This is also priced at 100 bucks, but it is full of awesome physical items. It comes in a metal box that needs a key to open it and inside are all kinds of cool items. A bandanna, a puzzle, playing cards and more. I love getting physical stuff, but 100 bucks is a lot of money!
I have no doubt that Red Dead Redemption 2 is going to be awesome, but I feel that these special editions are way overpriced. It is one thing to offer a 20 bucks season pass, but I have a feeling a lot of people are not going to be happy about these.
