Red Dead Redemption Pre-order Costumes

Pre-order bonuses own.  There’s no getting around that fact.  It proved true when we got a Batarang for preordering Arkham Asylum, and it was cool picking up that rooster hat along with Scribblenauts.  Free stuff is just the best.  And to further prove that pre-order bonuses are great, Rockstar Games is offering fans a neat little bonus whenever they preorder the upcoming Western shooter Red Dead Redemption.

So just what is this pre-order bonus?  Could it be a tattered cowboy hat akin to John Marston’s?  Will the pre-order gift be a gun?!  Well, for all intents and purposes, the pre-order goodie isn’t going to be anything tangible.  Instead, those who pre-order Red Dead Redemption will get a redeemable code which will grant access to a costume challenge in the game.

GameStop’s bonus will let fans vote on one of three challenges, and completing the task will reward the players with a costume that can be utilized in the game.  Oh, but why would you want an alternate costume for Mr. Marston?  For starters, the bonus outfit will have a direct impact on the gameplay, and while no details have been spilled just yet, one can only wonder what kind of craziness the costumes will entail.  (Gravitational physics?  Bullet Time?  Super speed?)

  1. I guess Rockstar figured everyone has a bunch of stuff cluttered up as a result of pre-order bonuses, so they decided to give gamers something that wouldn’t take up physical space. =P

  2. lame.. your not even guaranteed anything just a “chance” to play and win a costume in the game. its like saying yeah we are giving away something but it might actually be nothing if you suck and cant complete the challenge 😉

  3. I believe the challenge will be downloadable and playable any number of times. If players can’t beat the challenge, then it’s quite possible that they’ll suck at the rest of the game anyway. XP

  4. I’m staunchly against gamestop now. They’re becoming a gaming monopoly. I can never even go in there anymore and buy a damn game with cash and leave. I’m always bothered like hell, “have an edge card? Want a free magazine? Wanna pre-order anything? Here’s an annoying binder of pre-orders, let me shove it in your face.” Just let me buy my damn game! iufbeuaibew

    Seriously, I just picked up MW2 at Target, games rarely sell out in store. They’re pre-order it now to guarantee yourself a copy! is utter BS. Very scarcely have I not been able to find a game I was searching for. Sorry, rambling, Red Dead the original was awesome. Loved playing that multiplayer with my brother.

  5. Iv never had trouble buying any games, the only issues I had was buying limited edition or special edition games with some free thing included otherwise its would be stupid for a game company not to produce enough games to meet demand since the competition is so high.
