Downloadable Content (DLC)


So far the only DLCs we will have for Red Dead Redemption 2 are the pre-order bonuses and the exclusive content bundled in the Special Edition and Ultimate Edition of the game. PS4 players will also have access to exclusive DLC content for 30 days after which it will be available to Xbox One players for free.

Matt Stone

Ever since the original Red Dead Redemption was released back in 2010 and swiftly completed by Matt he has been eagerly anticipating another return to the Wild West. In Matt's totally non-biased opinion the story told in the sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, is one of the best ever (at least as far as games go). And while some story DLC would be great, Matt isn't counting on it! Matt is on Twitter (but not really active).
