GTA: San Andreas arriving for iOS, Android, Windows Phone devices next month
Rockstar have described the title as “best-looking version yet” and will offer full support for recent Apple-approved iOS controllers
Wednesday 27 November 2013
A revamped version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is coming to mobile devices next month, Rockstar has announced.
The console version of the game was released back in 2004, and went on to become the best-selling game for PlayStation 2. Critics loved the title's open-ended feel and it's engaging storyline, praising it as the 'best game in the series' - that is, until, GTA 5 was released.
Coming to mobile devices in December, the mobile title will feature Los Santos (the main city in this year’s GTA 5), San Fierro and Las Venturas. Rockstar has called the game the “best-looking version of San Andreas yet”, and boasted enhanced graphics including remastered character and car models.
Rockstar has said that the game will be available on iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle and Windows Mobile devices. It also comes with “full controller support”, including compatibility with made-for-iOS controllers. There’s also set to be a new touch control system, along with a reimagined checkpoint system for easier progression.
As far, there’s no word on the price of the game, although “more details in the weeks ahead” have been promised.
It has been a busy couple of months for Rockstar, what with the release of the wildly successful Grand Theft Auto 5, the rectification of the subsequent online problems, and also the release of the latest downloadable content.
