I'm a massive fanboy and have been waiting a long time, decided between this or ultimate version, and this seems more worth it.

The Red Dead Redemption 2: Special Edition delivers exclusive content for Story Mode including a Bank Robbery Mission and Gang Hideout, Dappled Black Thoroughbred, Talisman & Medallion Gameplay Bonuses, Gameplay Boosts, Cash Bonuses & Discounts, and the Nuevo Paraiso Gunslinger Outfit, plus free access to Additional Weapons.

Pre-Order Red Dead Redemption 2 to get the War Horse and Outlaw Survival Kit.
Also includes Exclusive Special Edition Printed Map.
The Red Dead Redemption 2: Special Edition delivers exclusive content for Story Mode including:

Bank Robbery Mission and Gang Hideout in Story Mode: Get exclusive access to a Bank Robbery Mission, in which Arthur and a couple of his fellow gang members come up with a daring plan to break in and rob the bank in the southern town of Rhodes. Elsewhere, the Del Lobos Gang has taken over a hacienda - clear this gang’s hideout and rob their stash for a lucrative take.

Dappled Black Thoroughbred: This thoroughbred racehorse sporting a beautiful reverse-dappled black coat will keep you at the front of the pack with its exceptional speed and acceleration. You will also get the exclusive Nuevo Paraiso Saddle, handmade in dark chocolate leather with silver medallion detailing. This horse and saddle are available in Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode.

Talisman and Medallion Gameplay Bonuses: These special Story Mode items will give Arthur a helping hand whenever they are equipped. Attaching the Eagle Talon Talisman to his boot, Arthur’s environmental awareness skill will last longer. By carrying the Iguana Scale in his personal Satchel, Arthur will take less damage while riding on horseback.

Gameplay Boosts, Cash Bonuses & Discounts: This collection of exclusive Story Mode boosts, bonuses and discounts will help Arthur to survive out in the harsh wilderness and better provide for his gang members and their camp. The Core Stat boost benefits Arthur’s Stamina, Health and Dead Eye Cores. Earn more cash during robbery missions with the Van der Linde gang, and when hunting and selling animal carcasses. Receive discounts on all upgrades to the Van der Linde gang’s camp.

The Nuevo Paraiso Gunslinger Outfit: This exclusive Story Mode outfit for Arthur is inspired by the clothing worn by vaqueros and banditos south of the border. The outfit features a wide brimmed black cowboy hat, deep indigo coat, worn denim chaps, leather gloves and boots.

Free Access to Additional Weapons: A good range of weapons is essential for survival in the Old West. Get free access to three weapons at the in-game Gunsmiths in Story Mode: the robust Volcanic Pistol, devastating Pump Action Shotgun and versatile Lancaster Varmint Rifle.
Also includes Exclusive Special Edition Printed Map.

The nature of the pre-order special edition with what appears to be minimal extra content, has really got my back up here. I think I'll pass on a day 1 purchase and wait for this to drop in price.
Just when you thought Rockstar couldn't take the pee any more and then they come out with this!
People should boycott these so called special additions.
75 notes!? ffs robstar!

The default prices Rockstar have just announced are:

£54.99 = standard edition

...............

8051672901528282394.jpg£74.99 = special edition:

A physical map, 2 extra missions, extra costume, some in-game trinkets, 3 guns and a dappled black horsey.
(On top of the pre-order grey war-horsey and a survival kit goodies all editions get if you pre-order).

........................


2811302181528282477.jpg£89.99 = The Ultimate Edition: the above, + a steelbook, + some online fluff (for those with a PSN or Xbox subscription and want to play online multiplayer).

.....................


14210507001528282511.jpg£??? = Collectors Edition: Loads of stuff in a metal box. No details on the price or sellers info currently. I'm guessing it will be about £149.99.

.............

As far as I can see there is at least none of that already developed yet held back DLC con developers usually pull at release.
Yeeeeeah......they're all overpriced. Every one of them, and Rockstar bloody well knows it.

I believe the main difference between the Special and Ultimate Edition is that the Ultimate Edition has content for Online Play too.

Is this the cowboy hat version complete with broke back mountain dvd
Not really a deal is it? These 'Special Editions' have so little extra content it's not worth the extra cost. Cold from me.

Problem with that is its rockstar, Red dead isn't as big as GTA but it will take a while to come down in price. GTA5 now unless you got 2nd hand, struggle to find under £20. I've not bought a game day 1 since GTA but with 48 free games a year, i might just wait a lil longer see if they do any DLC and a complete edition, I'm extra cautious with rockstar as they got rid of the guy who literally penned all the story stuff for most of their games and since then have mostly concentrated with online, even scrapping the 3 single DLCs for GTA5 which sounded great. If this turns out to be another, similar game where its mainly going to be online stuff for years, id be disappointed

I've always gone for collector's editions (usually Xbox and playstation). Loved the duffle bag and lock box from 4... 5 sold the stuff recently..

Haven't really played five properly and may just wait for a deal on this

Their argument is that it enables consumers to choose whether they want to purchase the game physically or digitally. Quite a few publishers are doing it that way now.
Thanks for being brave enough to post this
Wow, £75....


Will wait for PS4 to be emulated in the next 30-40 years and then play it at 40% speed thanks.
Briefly considered making this the second game I'd ever pre-ordered given how much I loved the previous entry. Guess I'll not bother.

Probably for the best anyway since I'm guessing they'll announce a PC version a few months later.
Half price for me when I go halfs with my game sharing buddy.

ill buy preowned purposely...
This is ridiculous! Just want the steel book edition and that's £90. Lol collectors is 180! Best to wait
as much as i'm looking forward too this, will wait as even the standard edition is overpriced
The Amazon and eBay price gouging resellers will love this.
You are limited to buying 4 copies (but there is as you expect ways around that).

For eg: Middle Earth:Shadow of War Mithril Edition (collectors edition) is currently being gouged on Amazon for £279.99.

Parasites.

The collectors box was £69.99 on rockstar the other day
Released October.

I'm going to wait and get 15% or 20% off at Sainsburys and Argos when the staff discount goes up near Christmas time.

By default it's 10%.

Get a relative or friend who works at Sainsburys or Argos to buy it on your behalf. (obviously pay them, lol)

Stopped ordering from game the moment they started shipping unsealed games as ‘new’. A sign of desperation from a company ready for closure.

Does the method of buying from another ountry still work? You could buy it in a third world country but I think you have to wait to that region gets the game

The collectors box is £90, it doesn't contain a game, where are you getting these gouged prices of already overpriced products?

I'm looking on the Rockstar warehouse
U need to buy special edition to get full experience as some non story missions are locked behind paywall. Rockstar is turning into greedystar.
Already Pre-ordered the ultimate. See you guys online in a year when I blow you up with homing missiles, mounted to my flying chrome horse.

Yeah rockstar is defending this by saying that they want to give customer a choice between buying physical or digital version of the game. Lol. They are just silly.

True, you can get this game for £40 so why pay £35 more for a few extra content (which will be released to everyone for free a couple months later) and a map

So an Add-on then, to be bought with the standard edition to get everything?.
If it is £90, then it's £90 + £54.99 (standard edition) for a grand total of £144.99.

£5 less than I predicted for the Collectors edition if it included the game then.
