Also, those pre-ordering the game digitally, will get a Cash Bonus for the story mode that will allow Arthur Morgan to buy a weapon, some food, ammunition and a handful of useful items. Not only that but a secret treasure map for the story mode will be given to those who digitally pre-order but it is imperative that players pre-order by July 31st, 2018 to get this.

The Collector’s Box will be available for the most hardcore of fans, the game is sold separately but when you see whats inside, you can see why it isn’t included.
