And then there's the collector's box.
Now, this is where things get a little confusing.
Arthur Morgan is the chief enforcer of the gang and he is the only protagonist players will be controlling in Red Dead Redemption 2.
The family in Red Dead Redemption 2 looks bigger than before.
Wildlife in Red Dead Redemption 2 is said to be highly improved. Comes with a canvas bag for storage.
Six-Shooter Bandana: A regular-looking red bandana, but look closer, and you'll see hidden weapons throughout. The treasure map sounds particularly useful because you can easily locate stashes that way.
Other items in the Collector's Box include a Rawson, Wheeler, and Co. The latter will be made available as an exclusive item for "select retailers", as well as through the Rockstar Warehouse. UPDATE: The Collector's Box is available to pre-order from GameStop now for $99.99.
You can pre-order physical and digital copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 right now. Anyone who wants the full Red Dead Redemption 2 experience will have to buy the game at least twice.
