Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Coming to iOS and Android

Rockstar's official app, available on Friday, offers players an alternative way to interact with the game's UI.

If you were hoping that Red Dead Redemption 2 would take over more devices than just your TV, you are in luck; Rockstar has announced the Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App, available on iOS and Android this Friday, just in time for launch.

As per the announcement:

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.

Specifically, the app will provide you with your character's "core info and stats in real-time," which will allow fans to play Red Dead without the in-game HUD. An exciting prospect for a game that promises to be as visually stunning as this one.

Further, the app gives you access to the game's extensive map, and players can set waypoints with a quick tap on the screen.

Now, if Rockstar can just integrate Red Dead with my laptop, Kindle, iPod, Tesla, BlackBerry, PalmPilot, and pager, I'll be all set.

Be sure to check back with GameSkinny for all of our Red Dead Redemption 2 coverage later in the week.
