You’ve played it on your PS2, Xbox and PC, and now it’s here for your phone. Nine years after it was first released, Rockstar’s blockbuster GTA: San Andreas has made its mobile debut on iOS. Rockstar has also indicated that the game will be available for Android and Windows Phone devices soon, but haven’t specified a date yet.
The mobile game covers three major cities in San Andreas – Los Santos, San Fiero and Las Venturas. At a hefty 1.63GB download, it’s going to take up precious gigabytes, but the 70+ hours of gameplay should make up for that.
GTA: San Andreas is compatible with all Made-for iOS controllers, like Logitech’s PowerShell. But if you don’t own one of these fancy accessories, the game offers customisable controls and dual-analog sticks.
Users will also be able to save their progress to the cloud, provided they have a Rockstar Social Club membership. The ability to create and listen to custom playlists has also been retained.
The mobile version of GTA: San Andreas has been remastered with high-resolution graphics, lighting enhancements, improved character models and a richer colour palette. The game is compatible with iOS 4.3 and above and is supported on the iPhone 4S and above, iPad 2 and above, iPod Touch 5th-gen and both iPad Minis.
iPhone 5 and iPad 4th-gen and above users will get a more enhanced version of the game with detailed shadows and real-time environmental reflections.
