Ten years ago this month, the revolutionary open-world epic Grand Theft Auto III was released to the world. The game 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, Rockstar announced that Grand Theft Auto III will be coming to select new-generation iOS and Android devices later this fall.
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
Rockstar Games also announced that beginning yesterday, 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, and includes his iconic Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit as well as an arsenal of classic weapons from Grand Theft Auto III.
