Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit – available day one in Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode and at the launch of Red Dead Online

A slick but rugged look, the Grizzlies Outlaw Outfit is the only item of the four that will be usable in Red Dead Redemption 2's single-player.

This nifty looking outfit, which supposedly pays homage to its real-world inspiration, “boss” of the Northern States, features a wool-lined long coat with custom, hand-tooled leather accents. A leather vest with ornate patterns is also part of the outfit, as well as a stand wing-tip collar with black neckerchief and custom ornate buckle with matching boot tips.

Unlike the online content, this piece does not provide any gameplay benefit.

Red Chestnut Arabian Horse – available at the launch of Red Dead Online

The fast and stable Red Chestnut Arabian Horse is in a class above most horses you would find in the wild, with performance a step up from the first tier of available horses. This horse provides players with faster speed and better handling. It looks pretty majestic, too.

Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle – available at the launch of Red Dead Online

In addition to its stylish look, the Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle provides a number of benefits when equipped. This Red Dead Online-only item provides your horse with everything it needs to get an advantage. It looks spiffy, and the riding gear it comes with helps your horse move faster and absorb some extra blows.

High Roller Double-Action Revolver – available at the launch of Red Dead Online

The High Roller Double-Action Revolver features a polished steel body with unique period-inspired engraving work. The deadly revolver comes complete with a unique playing card and skull elements carved into the grip. It'll provide players with faster rate-of-fire and is ideal for mounted combat.
