Looks like PS4 players will be given “first access to earn select online content” in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Sony announced the deal on the PS Blog this morning, promising details would be revealed “soon”, so we really don’t know what exactly what “first access” to “select online content” means at this point.
The content could be specific modes or maps, or particular unlockables similar to Sony’s Activision deal with Destiny and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Black Ops 3.
The teaser trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 was released today.
Rockstar has tagged the game for a fall 2017 release on PS4 and Xbox One. Hopefully, a PC version is also in the works and we won’t have to wait until 2018 or 2019 to get it – if it’s in the plan at all.
