GTA: San Andreas finally out on Windows Phone 8

GTA: San Andreas finally out on Windows Phone 8

Rockstar Games has finally published GTA: San Andreas for Windows Phone 8. The $6.99 game is officially compatible only with the Nokia Lumia 1520, 1320, 822, 820, 810, and the HTC 8XT. However, every WP8 handset with at least 1GB RAM should be able to run the game. The WP8 version includes everything the successful Android and iOS ports have to offer, including adjustable high-resolution graphics, customizable controls, the three in-game cities and countryside, and over 70 hours of gameplay. The game can be played in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, and Japanese.

For the few among you who don't know what GTA: San Andreas is about, the game is set in a virtual state based on California and Nevada during the early 90's. The protagonist, Carl Johnson, has returned to his hometown of Los Santos after a five-year absence, and is immediately framed for murder by corrupt cops. He's been left no choice, but to go back to gang life, turn the entire state of San Andreas upside-down, save his family, and take control of the streets once again. The intense dialogue, the dozens of colorful characters, the borderline-absurd to impossible missions, the huge in-game world impregnated with the authentic feel of early 90's America, make San Andreas a classic that demands to be played, even in 2014.

With the Grand Theft Auto 3D trilogy now complete on all leading mobile platforms, all that remains is to see how long it will take for smartphones and tablets to run the epic GTA IV and V. In the meantime, you can head to the Windows Phone Store from the link below to download San Andreas.

That doesn't even make any sense. It's already been available on Android & iOS for quite a while now.

One of greatest games of all time. Considering when it was made and how versatile and enjoyable it still is, overall awesome game. I love it on my N7. Btw, why it's officially compatible only with non-popular Windows Phones?

I think it runs just fine on every Windows Phone unless you have only 512MB of Ram, runs fine on my 920, and it's not listed in compatible device's :) Cheers
