Gangstar Vegas 1.3 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

French games maker Gameloft has released an interesting new content pack for Gangstar Vegas, the latest installment in its Grand Theft Auto series which hit the App Store in June of last year.

Available in the App Store as a free update for existing users, the Gangstar vs. Aliens content pack pits you against – what do you know – aliens! The game is still set in the City of Sin and this update brings back the jetpack while adding additional missions, weapons, costumes and vehicles.

If you live Gangstar Vegas, strap on your jetpack and kick some alien butt in the Gangstar vs. Aliens update…

This version includes the following enhancements:

  • 7 missions: Blast off into a new story to uncover the secret behind the aliens!
  • 3 repeatable missions: Infiltrate the alien base and steal their tech.
  • 12 weapons: Zap – and plain old blast – to atoms anything that’s not human, using these high-tech toys.
  • Costumes: Clothes make the man, as well as the alien. Dress for the part you want to play.
  • 9 vehicles: Soar among the stars over Vegas in several alien craft.
  • The jetpack is back: By popular demand, we’ve added a freakin’ Jetpack!

Android update is set to come shortly.

Check out the intro trailer.

Gangstar Vegas is $2.99 in the App Store.

The massive 1.63GB download is compatible with an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.

    Wow, I wonder where Gameloft ripped these ideas off?

    Oh no wait, no need to wonder.

    *cough* SAINTS ROW *cough cough cough*

    How has Gameloft survived so long when the only thing they do is shamelessly rip off other major games? I don’t understand.

      remembering San Andreas…very good days.

    • Dan

      I’ve always wondered the same thing myself. One of the reasons I refuse to play their games. That and I always found them boring.

      • omrishtam

        and freemium with MANY IAP,unoriginal,bad,boring as you said, high price with MANY IAP again, etc

      • Kurt

        Gangstar Rio was great, but Vegas is so boring and I hate how the cars spawn so close to you as you are driving. I don’t remember that problem in Rio.

    • omrishtam

      at the moment i saw that picture i imidiatly thought of saints row…original as hell

  • kline1

    Forget this, when are they gonna update Blitz brigade for controller compability. They are taking forever.

  • Laszlo Gaspar

    I always loved the gangster games

    Meh I’m fine with Gameloft ripping this game. They’re doing a better job than Rockstar on iOS. Better controls, better graphics. Rockstar’s GTA 3 and GTA VC were garbage on iOS San Andreas is finally on par but Gameloft’s still has better graphics and controls.

    • PowerdByRedstone

      Yea, but really gtavc and gtasa and gta3 were all made some years ago so they won’t have the best graphics on ios, R* only put them on ios so we can play one of the best games they released in early 2000 for xbox or ps1 and 2( I think), the controls are okay for both games, San Andreas also just got released on App Store, and the downside of Gangstar Vegas is how much stuff you can do, there’s no horn to beep, no sirens you can put on, and no house’s that you buy are enterable :(, but I like both games, gtaSA and Gangstar Vegas.

    Maybe Gameloft adds lots of amazing things but they will never get this:

  • StarViruZ

    At least Gameloft will never add this:

  • Suggest

    Grand Theft Auto SA is the best,R* even allowed people to modify the game How cool is that?Gameloft is so greedy you might even get bankrupt

  • Suggest

    Here’s my modified version of the game

  • rupertdeniro

    SAINTS ROW pretty much ripped off gta though

  • rupertdeniro

    you barely can do anything in this freaking game…..and all the stuff you can do it is so corny

  • Wow Conceptual 🙂

  • adithya gangsta

    Gameloft you should make the jetpack a wearable vehicle which can be worn and can be on when driving other vehicle like cars
