Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App for Mobile

Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost upon us and developer Rockstar Games announced a companion app for the game.

We are only a few days away from the endgame now where developer/publisher Rockstar Games releases their most anticipated title of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2 and it completely takes over our lives as we become outlaw Arthur Morgan.

While this Western-themed action-adventure takes us to the Wild West, the developers were thoughtful enough to come up with a companion app for the game on Android and iOS devices to provide real-time interactive information to players.

Releasing on the same date as RDR2, the app will provide you a look at the map and other in-game infos by acting as a second screen when you will be enjoying your adventure in outlaw country on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles.

You can even completely remove the in-game HUD that shows you all the vital information about Arthur on your smart device by connecting directly to your selected platform. You can mark several waypoints of the expansive world of RDR2 in the map.

The app allows you to take a peek at Arthur's health, stamina and other stats. There is an in-game journal that is updated with new entries and illustrations whenever new events take place within the game and ongoing story progresses forward.

It also comes along with a digital game manual and the Complete Official Guide for Red Dead Redemption 2 from publisher Piggyback on this Friday, October 26 over App Store and Google Play for players to download. Whether or not that will cost money is still not clear.
