Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto titles are quite popular to say the least. The most recent title, GTA V, has already passed the $1 billion milestone and continues to perform well. During the PS2 era, one of the most popular games was GTA: San Andreas, the early 90s where CJ and the Grove Street Families went about creating mayhem and mischief. Rockstar has announced today that in December it is going to release Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on iOS, Android and other mobile devices.
The title has been upgraded for its mobile release and it encompasses everything from San Fierro, Las Venturas and Los Santos. It comes with newly remastered graphics which includes detailed and dynamic shadows, enriched color palette and a greater draw distance. Character and car models have also been enhanced, making it the “best-looking version of San Andreas yet,” says Rockstar. There will be three different control schemes for driving and maneuvering, and a reworked checkpoint system for the casual gamer. The game comes with new touch controls including contexual controls which only show up when the user needs them. It will have full support for controllers, including the iOS 7 exclusive ones launched recently by MOGA and Logitech. GTA: San Andreas will be released for select iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle and Windows Phone devices next month.
