Red Dead Redemption 2 gets a companion app

Red Dead Redemption 2 app hits iOS and Android this week

Players who've managed to snag an early copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 are happily streaming Rockstar's wild western on Twitch right now. "It's the kind of thing that makes the world of "Red Dead 2" that much more believable and impressive".

"The resolution scaling between Xbox One and X is unprecedented: the enhanced console is created to quadruple the base machine's pixel-pushing output, but instead, Red Dead Redemption 2 is delivering a 6.2x boost to resolution, with further improvements on top of that", the Digital Foundry report reveals.

Once you've downloaded it and connected to your console, then the app will take the in-game Heads-Up Display and put it on your mobile device instead, meaning you can explore the map and set waypoints that will then appear in-game as you play. Once again, top of the pile is Xbox One X.
