Rockstar has teamed up with GameStop to bring us some pre-order bonus material for the upcoming Red Dead Redemption that will be exclusive to those that pre-order the game for the PS3 or the Xbox 360 at GameStop. This promotion will be the first of it’s kind, because the customer will have the power to choose their in-game bonus content.
For the first time ever, consumers will have the power to vote for their choice of one of three in-game outfit challenges as their exclusive pre-order bonus on the retailer’s website. “We’re privileged to have fans that are just as passionate about our games as we are,” said Alex Moulle-Berteaux, head of marketing for Rockstar Games. “Having fans choose their own pre-order bonus is a unique way to let them be a part of Red Dead Redemption.”
Players can vote to choose an outfit that will be earned by completing a unique set of in-game challenges. Once the challenges are completed and the outfit is unlocked, the outfit will uniquely affect how the surrounding world responds to the game’s protagonist, John Marston. Stay tuned throughout the month of January for new information about the outfits and their effects in-game.
Seems like a good idea let the player choose the exclusive content and see how it will affect the in game worlds surroundings. This may prove to be valuable to gamers, as we would like to see all three of the in-game outfits and be able to complete the challenges associated with said outfits.
