So long, productivity. You’ve always been a jerk and it’s time we parted ways.
If you, like me, are looking for a way to stare productivity in the face until it can’t hold eye contact with you before slinking away to stick its soul-sucking claws into the next feeble human, the arrival of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to your favorite mobile device might just be the thing to help you make a clean break.
Rockstar’s only clue, due-date-wise, is that it’ll be here in December, but the company’s news release promises “more details in the weeks ahead.” We do know that it’ll be available for iOS, Android, Kindle and presumably Windows Phone — the release says Windows Mobile, which should make some of us feel nostalgic and younger generations wonder what that means.
What’s more, Rockstar is also promising that this version of San Andreas will be an improvement over the last:
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.
And good news for those of you eyeing new iPhone game controller peripherals from the likes of Moga and Logitech: Rockstar says, “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for mobile also comes equipped with full controller support, including Made for iOS controller capability on iOS7.” If you were on the fence about forking over $100 for one of these controllers, and you like GTA, this oughta push you over the fence so fast you’ll get splinters.
