'GTA: San Andreas' arrives on Windows Phone, just a month after iOS and Android

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Windows Phone

Rockstar games promised a Windows Phone release for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and the game is available in the Windows Phone Store today. The release comes around a year after Rockstar ported 2002’s GTA: Vice City to mobile devices, and a month after the release for iOS and Android. Rockstar notes that only Nokia’s Lumia 1520, 1320, 822, 820, and 810 are officially supported, alongside HTC’s 8XT. However, we’ve downloaded and tested the game on a Lumia 1020 and it works fine, so it should work on any 1GB Windows Phone 8 handset. GTA: San Andreas is available immediately in the Windows Phone Store as a 19MB download, but you’ll need to install an additional 2.5GB update after the install. The update requires Wi-Fi with the handset on charge for the entirety of the download.
