Red Dead Redemption 2 will offer a nifty companion app for you to download on the iOS or Android platforms. This is actually pretty functional and can help during navigation or playing the game.
Rockstar Games has now shared details on the companion app including its features and release date.
What Is The Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App?
Here is the official description shared by Rockstar Games for the Companion App.
The Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App connects directly with your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One as you play, delivering real-time interactive information to your smart device. Available for download on October 26th on both iOS and Android, you can pan and zoom the map, set waypoints or mark areas of interest with a tap on your screen, aiding your exploration and discovery throughout the expansive world of Red Dead Redemption 2.
The app will also show you Arthur Morgan’s core info and stats in real-time on your device, allowing you to completely remove the in-game HUD from your television should you choose. Additionally, the Companion lets you examine Arthur’s in-game Journal, provides stat tracking through Social Club, contains the full digital game manual, plus an optional digital version of the Red Dead Redemption 2 Complete Official Guide from Piggyback and more.
They also give two examples of the app with pictures. One of them shows an interactive map that will reveal all important key locations so you can get to it quickly. The other shows that there will be a journal that you can view on the app which keeps track of the story and other gameplay elements.
