We were told last month that GTA: Vice City was coming soon to Android and now Rockstar has released a bit more information regarding the release of the popular game. GTA: Vice City is expected to drop into the Google Play Store on December 6th for $4.99(it’s also going to iOS on the same day).
Rockstar has promised the full experience of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, with several enhancements unique to the mobile platforms. There will be updated character models and lighting effects, new and more precise firing and targeting options and fully customisable control layout. Rockstar has also promised ‘native support for Retina display devices’ which I can only hope includes Retina quality Android devices.
The list of devices the game will be coming to initially has been supplied also so you can check if your device appears :

Interestingly the Nexus 4 does not appear however the Nexus 10 does, I`ll just have to purchase it for the Nexus 10 and hope the Nexus 4 is added at a later date. I personally can’t wait for this, I’m a huge GTA Fan and this is the game that introduced one of my favourite features : Helicopters! Check it out on Google Play when it arrives next month.
