Buying a physical or digital copy of a game is usually pretty cut and dry, but Red Dead Redemption 2 might give you a couple of obstacles depending on how you want to get it. The official release is Friday, October 26, with some opportunities to snag it earlier on Thursday. Men afhængigt af hvordan du bestiller det, kan du enten spille den meget forventede efterfølger så snart som muligt, eller stak venter længe på midnat.

Here’s how to make the most of your purchase, whether you’re weighing preordering or waiting for the day of release to make a decision.

Getting Red Dead Redemption 2 early at Target

If you want a physical Copy of the game to add to your library, Target has set a way to buy Red Dead Redemption 2 before the game officially goes live. According to Target’s weekly ad, starting at 9:00 p.m local time Thursday, Target will make both the regular ($ 59.99) and deluxe ($ 79.99) versions of the game available for in-store pick up.

2:00 a.m. Friday, but with this method, you could have it loaded and ready to go on your console while people waiting in line at other retailers will just enter the store.  screen-shot-10-24-18-at-11 -36-am "data-original =" https://cnet3.cbsistatic.com/img/elluuXMFn3YpAszwI0PwsBy4O-4=/724x0/2018/10/24/ce3b1561-1531-4d27-8524-b1d3e243a34a/screen-shot-10 -24-18-at-11-36-am.png

Both versions of the game will become available at 9:00 pm , but if you want the PS4 Pro bundle, you’ll have to wait until Friday.


Target

Starting Friday, Target is also offering a deal on the PS4 pro with RDR2 included for free at the standard price of $ 399.99 for the console.

Xbox One, Playstation 4 bundle deals

If you’re looking for an Xbox One to play Red Dead Redemption 2 on the first place, one of your best bets is to head to GameStop. They’re offering $ 100 off of either the Xbox One S or Xbox One X when you buy the game, and the discount can also include upcoming titles like Fallout 76. The Red Dead Redemption 2 bundle with Fallout 76, for example, brings the $ 559.99 Regular price down to $ 459.99.

Other deals, including Walmart, Best Buy and Microsoft will also participate in the bundle.

These deals run until Saturday, November 3rd, so your time ahead of peak holiday rabatter, selv om de præcise detaljerne eller disse bundles er endnu ikke kendt. Those discounts start Thursday at 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT.

If you’re looking to join the Playstation 4 community instead, Walmart, GameStop and Best Buy are all offering a $ 399 PS4 Pro bundle including Red Dead Redemption 2 while supplies last.

Watch out: the download is huge

If you choose to download the game digitally instead of getting a physical copy, do not think you’re going to be playing right away. Red Dead Redemption 2 requires roughly 100GB of download (99GB for PS4 (plus 50GB for the installation process) and 107GB for Xbox One) regardless if you get it on a disc or digitally. Not only will people have to scramble to make space on smaller console hard drives, but the download itself is going to take a while.

Even if you wait for reviews, which come out Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. ET, 4 a.m. PT, to make a call on your preordering via PSN or Xbox Live, you’re going to want to start pre-installing your digital copy right away.

What about the Amazon Prime discount?

Following this year’s changes to its 20 percent discount on game preorders Amazon Prime members now only receive 10% off of preorders, and that is only eligible for select games. Red Dead Redemption 2, unfortunately for fans, is not one of those games.

Did you forget to pre-order?

After all, not everyone is staring at gaming news sites all day. If Red Dead Redemption 2’s hype is just just reaching you, there are still some options for pre-order. Gamespot has built a guide for the places you can still pre-order the game, with the many retailer-specific bonuses. If you’re impressed at the early reviews, you can still get things like additional costumes, horses and other in-game bonuses just for pre-ordering.
