We’d like to let all PlayStation fans know that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is coming to PlayStation Store as a ‘PS2 Classic’ in today’s update. That means you can revisit the cities of Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas, as well as the surrounding countryside and mountains, exactly as they appeared on the PlayStation 2 back in 2004, on your PS3.
To help you prepare we’ve raided our archives for a video called ‘The Introduction’. This 20-minute prologue video highlights the action in the days before the story in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas begins. The Introduction is told from various characters’ viewpoints, which are intertwined together to reveal the network of organized crime forces operating throughout the state of San Andreas.
While there is plenty of new content to get your hands on this week, we’re happy to welcome Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, one of the most highly regarded entries into the GTA franchise, in to the PS2 Classics category. If you never had a chance to experience this classic, or just want to jump into the role of one of GTA’s most memorable characters once again, download it today.
Fans of Dishonored (which is finding its way to numerous Game of the Year lists already) will be excited to see the Dunwall City Trials Add-On released today as well. Take on challenges of combat, stealth, and creativity as you re-enter the foreboding city of Dunwall.
