Red Dead Redemption 2 is Getting a Touch Screen Companion App

Red Dead Redemption 2 app hits iOS and Android this week Red Dead Redemption 2 is Getting a Touch Screen Companion App

The announcement comes in the midst of increased scrutiny of Rockstar's working practices, after reports of 100-hour working weeks for members of staff at peak periods in Red Dead Redemption 2's development.

Red Dead Redemption 2, then, signals a return to the main stage for Rockstar, and while the studio's Western sequel hasn't been without its controversies (more on that later), this is a game rooted in the dusty plains of the American frontier. Parallel to the full game launch, an official companion app has now been announced for iOS and Android devices.

Hungry gamers queuing for the midnight release of Red Dead Redemption 2 can quell the hunger pains with direct delivery to their place in the queue, courtesy of Deliveroo.

Using the app can also enhance your on-screen experience, with an option to shift heads-up-display (HUD) elements to your smartphone. It works just the same as the in-game map, letting you pan around and zoom in or out to check out your surroundings, and even mark waypoints or other areas of interest.

Of course, we'll have to wait until Friday to get our hands on it in tandem with the game, but the app is nonetheless an exciting and intriguing addition to an already astronomically hyped up game. The app will also let you examine Arthur Morgan's Journal with new entries and illustrations appearing as you progress through the "Red Dead Redemption 2" story.
