Game launchers have been a thing for a while now and Rockstar has finally decided to come out with its own launcher too. But to get you to install it, Rockstar is bundling the classic Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for free.
The game launcher will be a one-stop-shop for all Rockstar titles, both digital and disc-based. Some popular titles include Max Payne 3, LA Noire, Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA V amongst others. The launcher can also be used to shop for more Rockstar games via your Rockstar Club Social account. The cloud save functionality that syncs progress in the cloud is also making it to the launcher for supported titles.
Apart from cloud save, Rockstar the launcher also supports automatic updates for its titles. It’ll also be a hub of all news and updates from the house of Rockstar. There’s also an option to buy GTA Online Shark Cash Cards to gain in-game GTA dollars to spend in GTA Online.
As mentioned above, for a limited time, Rockstar is bundling what is probably the most popular title of the GTA series: GTA: San Andreas, for free. GTA San Andreas was released back in 2004 for PlayStation 2 and was eventually released for the Microsoft Windows and the Xbox in 2005. The setting of the game was great, and it had a narrative that was simply outstanding.
As of now, the Rockstar Games PC Launcher is only available for Windows. There’s no word on when it will be made available for macOS. So if you’re looking for a dose of nostalgia, I’d suggest you quickly lap this introductory offer as there’s no word about when this offer will be valid till.
