We received great news this morning, as Rockstar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas would be making its way to Android in the next month. The game has apparently undergone a complete overhaul, with Rockstar’s developers adding in dynamic and detailed shadows, optimizations for touchscreen devices, and an enriched color palette. If they include the same optimizations they went through for Vice City, then we should be in for quite a treat.
Rockstar briefly details a few of the changes made to the game in the quote taken from the press release down below.
Encompassing Los Santos, San Fierro, Las Venturas and everything in between, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has been upgraded for its mobile release. Newly remastered graphics including dynamic and detailed shadows, greater draw distance, an enriched color palette, plus enhanced character and car models make this the best-looking version of San Andreas yet.
As for a release time, all we have is “next month.” Let us all pray that Rockstar doesn’t run into the same issues like they have with the last two GTA releases on Android. Previous launches have been plagued with delays, Google Play bugs, and other mishaps that were all serious turn offs for gamers.
Are you stoked?
