The sequel to Red Dead Revolver is set for an April 27th, 2010 release and you, yes you, can get in on the pre-order fun. Not only will there be a bonus to those who buy the game in advance from Gamestop, XBOX Live, or PSN, but you can currently vote on what it will be!
The bonus will consist of one of three outfits (as to be determined by voters) that will be unlocked once a series of challenges are completed. Says Alex Moulle-Berteaux, head of marketing for Rockstar Games:
“We’re privileged to have fans that are just as passionate about our games as we are. Having fans choose their own pre-order bonus is a unique way to let them be a part of Red Dead Redemption.”
