Red Dead Online is giving PS4 players an exclusive sneak peek at future content this week. The online component to Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 just came out of beta last week and is hitting the road running. Starting today, PlayStation 4 players will be getting early access to Red Dead Online PS4 exclusives such as new clothes, emotes, weapons, and modes. Additionally, for a limited time, PS4 players can try out Red Dead Online without an active PS Plus subscription. So, what exactly are these Red Dead Online PS4 exclusives?
Red Dead Online PS4 Exclusives | New weapons, emotes, and clothes
The first part of the Red Dead Online PS4 exclusives offers players early access to new weapons, emotes, and clothes. The Ancient Tomahawk is a new throwable weapon that is available to players of any rank. Simply visit your local Fence to pick one up!
Additionally, players can visit the Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue in Red Dead Online to get new in-game items for no cost, like the new Boast and Hey emotes. The General Store and local Tailor also have some great new items available like a Finely Jacket, Stenger Studded Spurs, and a Caldwell Hat, which are all free. Finally, a new Perlino Andalusian Horse is available that has higher stamina than other horses found in the game.
Red Dead Online PS4 Exclusives | Make it Count and Last Stand
Make it Count and Last Stand are two of the new Showdown modes coming as part of the Red Dead Online PS4 exclusives. Make it Count mode is a free-for-all where players must only use the Ancient Tomahawk. Players can go for a stealth attack or throw the tomahawk across the map at their enemies, the choice is theirs. As the game progresses, the play area will get smaller and smaller until there is no other option except to get up close and personal.
Last Stand, on the other hand, is a free-for-all game where players must survive in two-minute bouts. Surviving one round will take you to the next until there is only one man left! Both of these new Red Dead Online modes are accessible through the Quick Join option in the player menu or via the Special Series icon on the map.
