Vice City Android iOS

Rockstar has confirmed that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will hit Android and iOS devices on December 6, according to Cult of Android.

Those who are looking to relive the early days of the ground-breaking open world franchise will be able to do so for the low price of $4.99. Considering most of us paid roughly $50 for the game when it first arrived in 2002, that’s an incredible deal.

Endgadget reports that Rockstar is giving Grand Theft Auto: Vice City a bit of a face lift for its upcoming re-release. In addition to updated character models and enhanced lighting effects, players will be able to fully customize the control scheme. The game will also feature crisp high-resolution graphics. In short, this isn’t a simple run-of-the-mill port.

If you missed Vice City the first time around, now is the perfect time to add the title to your mobile game collection. The story follows the adventures of Tommy Vercetti, a career criminal looking to take control of the underworld. The game was originally released in North America on October 29, 2002.

Fortunately for those who don’t have the latest and greatest in mobile technology, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is compatible with a number of popular devices. You can find a complete list of the contraptions capable of running the game below.
