When Red Dead Redemption 2 finally launched on PC not too long ago, the new port featured a number of exclusive bonuses that weren't present in the previously launched console versions.
Now, the timed-exclusive Rockstar and Sony content deal has reared its head: the PC bonuses are available on PS4.
Red Dead Redemption 2 on the PlayStation 4 has previously received certain content 30 days before it arrived on Xbox One, but this trend slowed down a couple of months after Red Dead Online launched. Leading up to the game's release, there was a lot of PS4 branded marketing material too - a lot more than things branded with Microsoft's console.

The particulars of the deal weren't clear, but Red Dead Redemption also famously appeared on the PS Now streaming service, which technically made the game playable on PC too, albeit in a neutered form. Since then, emulators have stepped in to do that particular job.
Now, alongside a few smaller promotions involving Twitch Prime, this is the first sign we've received that the exclusivity deal is still alive. PlayStation 4 players can enjoy the game's Photo Mode, extra Bounty Hunter and Gang Hideout missions in Story Mode, the To The Ends Of The Earth gathering mission in Story Mode and a bunch of new treasure maps, weapons, trinkets and horses.
The Photo Mode is a key addition, joining a trend in many AAA games striving to be more shareable. The in-game utility makes taking perfect screenshots easier and is equipped with its own filters and editing tools, as well as the ability to share directly to the Social Club with a caption.
A bunch of other content has also launched in early access on the PS4. Five emotes, 4 pieces of apparel, the Beaver Hollow hideout, and the free Band Expansion for players taking on Moonshiners are now live on PlayStation 4. More gameplay content will hit the game on the 19th of December.
All of these bonuses will become available on the Xbox One version of Red Dead Redemption on the 21st of January.
