In celebration of 10th anniversary, Rockstar puts Grand Theft Auto games on sale

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (teaser 001)

Rockstar Games is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto, the famous action-adventure video game franchise originally created by David Jones and Mike Dailly. And to mark the occasion, Rockstar has put the wildly popular Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City games on sale in the App Store.

This is a great limited-time opportunity to save as much as seven bucks on all three open-world action-adventure games.

Here are the download links:

  • Grand Theft Auto III [$4.99 → $2.99, save 40%] — Released in the App Store in December 2011 and ported to iOS by War Drum Studios. The game brings to life the dark and seedy underworld of Liberty City, featuring a massive and diverse open world, a wild cast of characters from every walk of life and the freedom to explore at will. The 483-megabyte download requires iOS 4.3 or later.
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas [$6.99 → $3.99, save 43%] — The game made its App Store debut in October 2013. You’re Carl Johnson and it’s the early 90’s. Your mother has been murdered and your family has fallen apart and to make things worse, corrupt cops frame you for homicide. Now you must take control of the streets of three major cities of the state of San Andreas: Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas. The installer comes in at 1.63 gigabytes. The game requires iOS 6.0 or later and supports any iPhone and iPad from the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 onward.
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City [$4.99 → $2.99, save 40%] — Released in the App Store in December 2012. Set in the 1980s, this one recreates the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits. Your goal: rise to the top of the criminal pile in Vice City. You’ll enjoy the game’s addictive open-world gameplay with character driven narrative and a cast of unbelievable characters. The app binary comes in at 930 megabytes and requires iOS 4.3 or later. Supported hardware includes the iPhone 4 and up, all iPad models and the fourth and fifth-generation iPod touch.

All three titles are universal and support all form factor iOS devices, though not the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screen sizes.

This sale is scheduled to end on November 9. Other Rockstar Games titles can be found in the App Store by following this iTunes link.

Are you a Grand Theft Auto fan?

And if so, will you be revisiting these Grand Theft Auto classics?

I’ve burned a lot of midnight oil playing these games studiously on my PlayStation and was happy to enjoy them on my iPad, especially San Andreas and Vice City.
