Rockstar Games has a companion app for Red Dead Redemption 2 available since last year for Android mobile. You can view the game’s world map, set waypoints and mark areas of interest as you explore to play. The app also promises real-time information on Arthur Morgan’s health, stamina and other stats; which aid players who prefer a HUD-less game presentation.
You can also examine Arthur’s in-game journal; which updates with new entries and illustrations over the course of the game’s story, in the app. It features stat tracking and a digital game manual, too. Red Dead Redemption 2 is also available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The Gameplay and The App Features
You can download the Red Dead Redemption 2’s companion app all free from Google Play on your Android. You need to have an Android 6.1 and an up compatible device to run this app all smooth; and you need 193 MB of space on Android mobile. This app also comes with an app purchase of $14.99 to unlock a full strategy guide; the Red Dead Redemption 2 Complete Official Guide by Piggyback.
At the time of writing, this app had few bugs and issues and was not fit for Samsung Galaxy devices. But soon this will overcome the issues users have faced.
The store of the game takes you back to America; 1899 when the end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater; Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels; the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart; Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
You need to track your position, set waypoints, find the nearest General Store; hide from the law, hunt your enemies and more with a full screen, real-time view of the in-game map connected directly to your game experience. Use pan and zoom functions to explore, and easily spot Gang Members, Wanted Areas, and key locations. As you progress you’ll unlock important points of interest to easily locate Gunsmiths, Hotels, camps, Saloons, Post Offices, Fences, Doctors, Tailors, Stables, and much more.
You can turn off additional elements from your main gameplay screens such as the mini-map, player attributes and cash balance, and have them displayed exclusively in-app. Also, Arthur Morgan keeps a detailed journal of his experiences. When connected to the game you’ll be able to examine these entries and illustrations firsthand as new pages appear in the Journal.
