Rockstar Announces the Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App

Rockstar Games has revealed Red Dead Redemption 2's official companion app, which is set and ready to launch with the game this Friday. If you're torn between what console to go with or are just now jumping into consoles to play this title, this is a very helpful watch.

"One of the challenges we have every year is how do we try to fit everything on to a blu-ray, and then how do you load it fast enough, because you're literally talking 50GBs of data". For many, it's not a question of if they'll get the game, but for which console they'll be buying. Xbox One X also knocks down the PS4 Pro; it reaches a Native 4K and hit an nearly flawless 30fps.

The app basically gives you a second-screen experience while you play Red Dead Redemption 2 on either your Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Both the PS4 and Xbox One S versions of the game seem to use lower resolution textures than their 4K-targeted counterparts.

Digital Foundry discovered that environments are equally as lush across all platforms and that rendering effects are almost a ideal match.

Which movies and TV shows like Red Dead Redemption 2 would you recommend? Digital Foundry discovered that Red Dead actually runs slightly better on the Xbox One family of consoles - presumably due to a higher clock speed on the CPU.

Initially when we inserted the disc, the estimated time read as three hours total. So in total, it took us 1 hour and 28 minutes to install Red Dead Redemption 2 in its entirety.
