Special Edition - Any news?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello

I was just wondering if anybody has heard if there will be a special/limited edition of this game for PS & XBOX?

Normally a big name title would have a special edition but I cant seem to find anything yet

Any information would be greatly appreciated 

Thank you

I’d love to see RDR1 remastered for PS4 included in a gold edition or something. It has to be at some point right? For kids that may have never played the first one and don’t have a ps3, they’ll want to continue the story and see how it all ends.

I grew up with Red dead redemption and still play it and still enjoy to play it

Dutch, you're drunk... Go home.

As for the OP, I haven't seen much on this other than what was mentioned but it isn't confirmed so we are just playing the guessing game right now. I would imagine they have special additions coming out in 2019. Maybe we will see a deluxe edition in October, who knows.

Over the past week there has been an unusual flurry of Red Dead Redemption 2 news, finally from official sources.

Between a new trailer, new screenshots, demo impressions and an interview, it’s clear that Rockstar is dialling up publicity efforts for the game to the maximum.

With so much to work through, sometimes the details slip by players – such as Rockstar confirming multiple special editions.

In the wake of the third trailer’s publication, Rockstar Games shared several batches of screenshots across their social media platforms and the Newswire. While all images were accompanied by a lick of flavor text, everyone rushed to painstakingly analyze the images themselves, and thus, aside from a few folk who actually read the descriptions, everyone missed a juicy little detail.

Stay tuned for more Red Dead Redemption 2 info next month including first details about the game’s special editions and more.

“Special Editions”, eh?

While it is customary for popular AAA titles to ship with not just one Collector’s Edition alongside the base game, and instead with multiple editions with various pricing, Rockstar never really jumped on this boat. Red Dead Redemption had no special editions save for a GOTY edition that contained Undead Nightmare and Grand Theft Auto 5 only had the one Collector’s Edition.

While we don’t expect Red Dead Redemption 2 to go overboard with various editions like Assassin’s Creed games usually do, knowing there will be two or more non-standard editions opens up a lot of possibilities. We previously covered what items might go into a potential Red Dead Redemption 2 collector’s edition a long time ago and it seems that maybe some of those concepts will see the light of day.

Your most common special edition format includes the game, a CD with the soundtrack, an art book and a statue. Some games toss in some special DLC or in-game items as well, or a fold-out map.

That said, some games go above and beyond with their special editions. Splinter Cell: Blacklist had an actual remote-controlled airplane,and one of Mass Effect: Andromeda’s editions had a remote-controlled Nomad.

Some editions have wearable goods. One of Watch_Dogs’ special editions had the protagonist’s iconic mask and hat included and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s collector’s edition included Geralt’s wolf pendant. Others, again, have replicas of in-game items such as weapons instead of statues of characters.

Red Dead Redemption 2’s rarely explored Wild West setting gives Rockstar the chance to do something really unique with the game’s special editions. A replica of one of the in-game cowboy hats coupled with a bandana would be the best choice for wearable goodies, for example. While a replica Cattleman revolver would be impressive, it might make availability a tricky question.

Rockstar promised further information on these various editions in the coming month, so stay tuned for our coverage.

Nothing yet. June is the highly anticipated month for that information. As soon as anything drops I'll be airing the news out on YouTube. Going to be following Red Dead II on a short leash. I'm not a YouTube paid Youtuber so yes I work so updates may not be on demand but as soon as they are possible they will be uploaded.

Speculation wise. I'd say one edition is going to be purely John Marston. It seems very much so that they have this game as a nod to John and Dutch more so than Morgan. So yeah, I'd say one for John and one for Dutch. 

A figurine a t shirt a map and the game I suppose. With a fancy covering

One to be aound the $80 for the states. And one that's around the $120 Mark. 

 

That's my right now. It could change lol.

 

Anyway. If your down to hear a crazy british talk on all the red dead stuff he can get his hands on. Check me out

So June will be the month for news and such then? I was thinking it would end up being closer to July but I am all for that.

No one really knows we are just all assuming at this point. I don't think they will advertise special editions for a while yet. Maybe they will do their pre-order bundles and special editions closer to October.
