Official companion app
« on: October 23, 2018, 05:54:07 PM »
An official app will go along with the game.

What do you expect or want this app to have?  Leaderboards? Posse/club related stats? Only single player stuff?

One thing I remember and liked from the battlefield app was that it had the recaps of you last 5 matches or so in MP.  Would be nice to be able to go back and access that stuff in pvp.

For single player, I would like it to have the option to view any treasure maps you acquire and map locations of any collectibles. And similar to the iFruit app where you could train Chop...maybe you can do something with your horses...change their saddle/bridle/blanket. And, for Arthur, the ability to check your inventory...guns, clothes and whatever else.

For online stats, leaderboard and club related things...I think that would be better in the Social Club site. They have a separate section for each of the Rockstar Games...I wouldn't be surprised if they made one specifically for RDR2 maybe once Red Dead Online launches.

Without giving away any spoilers there is a great mechanic where you can disable the HUD map but if you can push a button to pop it back up on screen very briefly (to check which direction to head, etc). Its actually amazing and really lets you see all the detail in the world.

Thanks for this news. I will give this a try, but normally when I play I'm 100% focused on the TV. I don't know if I can do two screens at the same time. We'll see.

Hello James, nice to hear from you again.

I share your sentiments. I’m sure I’ll give the app a try, but doubt I’ll stick with it long term.

Thanks, silebyboy. Well, I guess I'll have to see what others say anyway, as my phone is not compatible with the app. :)

I can't even find the app in the store, let alone use it.

I’ve used it some. I got the guide for shits and giggles. It’s handy for animal details.
