You’ve Got the Grove Street Families in Your Pocket
The 2004 smash-hit Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is finally making its way to mobile devices this December. In this new version you’ll find updated visuals, flexible controls and a new checkpoint based saving system that makes on-the-go virtual larceny even easier!
The game is set in a parody of California circa 1992 and follows protagonist Carl “C.J.” Johnson as he embarks on a quest to find out the truth about his mother’s death. In the meantime, he wants to rebuild his old gang back to prominence, despite the intentions of rival gang members and corrupt cops to do him in as well. Using an array of questionably acquired vehicles and weapons, CJ fights to learn the truth while making his way to the top.
Gritty and Pretty
GTA:SA is set to look better than ever as the graphics have been completely remastered to take advantage of the full power of modern mobile devices. Everything from the character models to the way shadows fall upon the highly detailed landscapes of Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas has been upgraded.
With the move to touchscreen devices, there will now be several new options available for maneuvering CJ around town. The controls will be completely customizable, with three different ready-to-use options for driving, walking and running. In addition to the standard touch screen buttons, it also has built-in controller support for a more traditional experience.
The game is expected to be released on iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle and Windows Mobile enabled devices.
