Rockstar Games’ much awaited 10th anniversary edition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for iOS devices is rolling out to the App Store, starting with countries like Japan and New Zealand, where it already is the 6th of December.
The game, priced at $4.99, is a universal app supporting iPhone 4 and up, iPod touch 4th gen and up and all iPads and weighs in at nearly 1 GB. Here’s its description from the App Store:
Welcome back to Vice City. Welcome back to the 1980s.
From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man’s rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City, a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, was one of the most varied, complete and alive digital cities ever created. Combining open-world gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.
To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Rockstar Games brings Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to mobile devices with high-resolution graphics, updated controls and a host of new features including:
• Beautifully updated graphics, character models and lighting effects
• New, precisely tailored firing and targeting options
• Custom controls with a fully customizable layout
• iCloud save game support
• Massive campaign with countless hours of gameplay
• Support for Retina display devices
