Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas goes mobile on iOS

The original west coast GTA is now live and ready for action on the App store.

Five years ago, Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Now it’s the early 90’s and Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.

A favorite Grand Theft Auto for a whole lot of the series’ fans for its sheer enormity and massive amour of stuff that you can do, GTA: San Andreas has finally completed the ‘original’ GTA saga on iOS. Both GTAIII and Vice City were already posted to the App store of course, and San Andreas puts the cherry on the cake for the rebooted series.

With over 70 hours of gameplay, three cities to play in and “enhanced visual fidelity”, this just might be the best version of the game around. Here’s what’s new and updated for iOS devices:

  • Re-mastered, high-resolution graphics including lighting enhancements, an enriched color palette and improved character models;
  • Dynamic detailed shadows and real-time environmental reflections (iPhone 5 series/iPad 4th Gen and above);
  • Physical controller support for all Made-for-iOS controllers;
  • Cloud save support for playing across all of your iOS devices for Rockstar Social Club Members;
  • Updated checkpoint system;
  • Dual analog stick controls for full camera and movement control;
  • Three different touch control schemes and customizable controls.

Grand Theft auto: San Andreas is available right now from Rockstar Games for iOS devices and is compatible with the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPod Touch 5th gen, iPad 2, 3rd and 4th generation, iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPad Mini with Retina Display. The game will cost you $6.99 USD.

An Android version is also on the way, but there’s no release date to report for that one as of yet.
