So RockStar have announced an official RDR2 Companion App.  Will show the map and you can access other things too.  This lets you remove the HUD from the game and have all that info on the App.

Interface elements on screen can sometimes get in the way for those looking to enjoy a truly cinematic experience in games and it seems like Rockstar Games has the perfect solution for them.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app is going to be released for both iOS and Android devices on October 26th, the same day RDR2 releases worldwide. The app will be available for free, and it will allow players to further customize their experience.

For starters, players will be able to access the map at any time without having to go through in-game menus, making it much simpler to keep track of the many collectibles and side-events included in the game. It will also be possible to zoom the map in and out, set waypoints and so on.

The app will also display Arthur's info and stats at any time. This will allow players to completely remove any and all HUD elements from the screen, leading to a truly cinematic experience.

The app also keeps track of players stats through the Rockstar Social Club.

As if all this wasn't enough, the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app will also include Arthur's diary, where he will keep track of all the events that will transpire during the course of his journey and even a copy of the game's manual.

Those looking to have all the information regarding the game on hand at all times will also have the option to purchase the digital version of the Complete Official Guide by Piggyback and access it through the app.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will feature a customizable experience and it seems like Rockstar has improved nearly every aspect, offering even more options than previously before. Search for the Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app on the App Store and Google Play Store starting from October 26th.

I need someone to explain to me how this makes life easier or the game any more enjoyable. I already have the controller in my hand, the map and stats, everything is right in front of me on the TV if I want to find it. Why would I ever want to download an app for it? Now when I want to check the map I need to drop the controller, pick up the phone and open the app?

No.

You dont HAVE to use the app, its there if you want it, personally, as I have a tablet, my previous experience with hud apps, they are bigger on a tablet so access and visuals are way way better ....

Oh I know I don’t have to. I’m just saying, it seems like a waste of time and effort to me.

Playing the other day in GTA Online, I started a mission was trying to find it on the map.  While in the map, some punk comes along and blows me up.  Reload get the mission failed, get blown up by the same tool and have to reload.  I quit.

I mean, if you're looking for immersion, it doesn't get more immersive than playing the game in first person mode, with the hud off, and using your phone as a map that you have to refer to when necessary. 

From a practical standpoint though, you're absolutely correct.  There's no reason to do both when the convenience of everything on a large display is unmatched in terms of efficiency.

My thinking though is that I can turn off the HUD or mini map and still access it in game through the pause button or what have you, should I need it. Whatever. It's all very silly.

Good example of how the app is helpful, I couldn't think of anything.

he would still have his attention drawn elsewhere though, leaving him vulnerable. Instead now, looking down at his phone.
