Rockstar has just announced on their website that their Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App will be launched Friday – 26 October, for iOS and Android devices. The app will connect to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and help you explore the map, set waypoints and other interesting features that are in the game – and all of them will be available as you play.
Moreover, you can see the main character’s health and data in real time, so you can experience a clean HUD while still accessing important information.
Here is some information from the official Rockstar website:
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.
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.
Red Dead Online – Surprises for the PS4 Players
The best thing about having a PS4 is that you will gain access faster to Red Dead Online and some of the content. Players will get their hands on the Red Chestnut Arabian horse, an alligator skin saddle that gives the horse boost for health, stamina, and speed. There will also be a high roller double-action revolver and a Grizzlies outlaw outfit (the last one is available both in the story mode and in the Online mode).
The content will be launched in November, but PS4 players will have 30-day early access.
Rockstar has released a trailer teasing that more will come, so we can all expect future content similar to what we saw in GTA Online. That means more post-launch updates, which are welcomed by the eager Old West fans!
