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.

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.

Ever since the original Red Dead Redemption was released back in 2010 and swiftly completed by Matt he has been eagerly anticipating another return to the Wild West. In Matt's totally non-biased opinion the story told in the sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, is one of the best ever (at least as far as games go). And while some story DLC would be great, Matt isn't counting on it! Find him on LinkedIn or Twitter.
