A few days ago, I was talking about the fact that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas game for Windows 8 users has finally leaked in the Windows Store, after I was just imagining how this could be like. Now, the game has finally been available worldwide.
If you have been waiting to play the Windows 8 version of the highly popular GTA San Andreas game, you should know that this moment has finally come, as Rockstar has made it available on a global scale. Follow the download link at the bottom of the article to download it and start enjoying the good old times with Carl and his friends on your Windows 8 tablet. What I really dislike about this launch is the fact that the app is pretty expensive for most of us – $6.99 and that there’s no free trial option, at all.
Bring San Andreas on your Windows 8 tablet
Five years ago, Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers. Now, it’s the early 90’s. Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.
The launch of GTA San Andreas in the Windows Store is a pretty important moment for the success of the Windows 8 concept, as it shows that important developers aren’t afraid of it and consider it to be a lucrative platform. As a matter of fact, this is Rockstar Games’ biggest release to mobile yet. The game comes with over 70 hours of gameplay and if you think playing on the touch screen with your fingers is annoying, then you can use a dual analog stick for full camera and movement control. I can’t wait for the moment when Windows tablets will be so powerful that we will be able to play GTA 5 on them.
