Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary

Posted by Grey Friday, October 14, 2011

Ten years ago, Rockstar Games's Grand Theft Auto III revolutionized the gaming world. Today, to commemorate the anniversary, Rockstar Games has announced a re-release on an array of new generation portable devices, as well as the release of a new limited-edition action figure of Claude, the silent protagonist of the classic title.

In commemoration of the ten year anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III, the seminal open-world sandbox-style action-adventure that opened the eyes of the gaming world, Rockstar Games has announced a release of the epic title on select new generation iOS and Android devices later this fall.

Here's the official press release from Rockstar Games:

10 years ago, this month, the revolutionary open-world epic Grand Theft Auto III was released to the world – a game that set players loose as a small-time criminal at the bottom of the food chain in Liberty City, a sprawling metropolis where anything can happen – and probably will.

To commemorate the game’s 10th anniversary, we’re proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto III will be coming to select new generation iOS and Android devices later this fall. For the lineup of devices currently confirmed to be supported at launch, check the list below and stay tuned for more devices to be announced:

Apple iOS Devices: iPad 2, iPhone 4S
Android Phones: Droid X2, HTC Evo 2, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix, Samsung Galaxy S2
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1


Yes, you read that correctly. iPhone 4S. So tough luck for the iPhone 4 users.

Apart from the re-release, a limited-edition 1:6 scale figure of Claude, the silent protagonist from the title will also be made available to commemorate the anniversary. Priced at US$149.99 and produced by notable collectible manufacturer Sideshow, the figure will be available for pre-order in limited quantities at the Rockstar Warehouse.
