Updated on December 6th, at 11:00:Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is now available to download on iOS and Android. You can get it from Google Play by clicking on this 'ere hyperlink.
However, judging by the comments on Google Play, it seems like the Android port is plagued with more problems than Vice City itself. Something about an "XAPK Validation Failed".
It's best to wait it out for now. Hopefully, Rockstar should get it fixed up soon.
I can feel it coming in the air tonight... Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition, that is.
By tomorrow morning, Rockstar's synth-infused, blood-splattered, neon-drenched classic will be safely tucked away in the roomy garages of the Apple and Google app stores, ready for eager nostalgia hounds to bust open the doors and take it for a spin.
In this much-anticipated follow-up to the mobile port of Grand Theft Auto 3, you don the Hawaiian shirt of Tommi Vercetti, an Italian American crook who has to rob, shoot, and carjack his way to the top of Vice City's criminal underworld.
A more colourful and outlandish proposition than other entries in the GTA series, Vice City borrowed heavily from '80s gangster movies like GoodFellas and Scarface.
Packed with fast cars, hard drugs, big guns, and a soundtrack capable of bringing any classic pop connoisseur to his knees, the game is regarded as a classic by GTA veterans.
Now, a new generation can experience this open-world masterpiece in all its excessive glory. What's more, this anniversary edition boasts freshly updated visuals and improved targeting options. Oh, lord. Oh, lo-o-ord.
You will be able to download Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition on iOS and Android from midnight. It'll set you back £2.99 / $4.99.
