Announcing Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary Edition for Select Mobile Devices & the Limited Edition Claude Action Figure

Posted on October 13 2011, 8:00am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: 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 1 & 2, iPhone 4 & 4S, iPod touch 4th Generation
Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, T-Mobile G2x
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive

We’re also pleased to announce that beginning today, a limited-edition action figure of lead character Claude, created by renowned collectible manufacturer Sideshow, will be available for pre-order in limited quantities at the Rockstar Warehouse.

This fully articulated 1:6 scale action figure of Claude comes dressed in his original attire of cargo pants and a bomber jacket, but can also sport his iconic Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit (supplied) and comes equipped with an arsenal of classic weapons from Grand Theft Auto III including a bat, knife, grenades, pistol, sniper rifle, and assault rifle.

This rare and valuable collector’s item MSRPs for $149.99, but Social Club members have the exclusive opportunity to nick one for free.  Visit www.rockstargames.com/socialclub/sweepstakes/gtaiiianniversary and fill out the entry form by this Sunday October 16th for a chance to be one of three lucky winners.

Also, if you’re in the NYC area and heading to New York Comic Con, stop by our booth where mobile versions of the game will be available to play, you can tour an exclusive gallery featuring the game’s signature art, and get even more chances to win special anniversary edition Grand Theft Auto III and Rockstar Games gear.

            Hey Rockstar, I would really love to buy that Claude figure set, now that I have a credit card I can buy things online, I'm really hoping I can still buy it somewhere, I don't care if it's $150.00 I need it haha.

            Also I hope you come out with a figure set for Tommy Vercetti, I will definitley be buying that aswell!

                  Bought it for my Samsung Galaxy S. The credits rolled nicely but then the screen went black so had to uninstall it and get a refund. Too bad it doesn't run on Samsung Galaxy S. Would love to play it on the go.

                    This game would be perfect on the Xperia Play. Please make it compatible for it.

                          I am willing to pay £10 for it on the SGS2! I'm so disappointed it was taken off the supported device list.

                              Hey Rockstar Games, why did you remove Samsung Galaxy S2 from the list?
                              What specifications doesn't it meet?
                              As much as I know it's better than at least Samsung Galaxy R(SGS2 is better in whole chipset), LG Optimus 2X(SGS2 is better in whole chipset) and Motorola Atrix 4G(SGS2 is much better in CPU).
                              Will the game only be availbe to Tegra device or will you (eventually or instantly) make it compatible to others?
                              Can you also answer my previous question: are you going to port GTA Chinatown Wars or any other games to Android?
                              !!!PLEASE ANSWER ME AND DON'T AVOID DOING IT JUST BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF QUESTIONS!!!
                              IF YOU ANSWER MY QUESTIONS, YOU WILL PROBABLY ANSWER TO MANY OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE WONDERING THE SAME.
                              WAITING FOR YOUR ANSWERS, HOPING THEY'RE GONNA BE AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE.
