Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is out now on iOS devices.

Rockstar’s open-world action game is available from the iOS App Store for £4.99 ($6.99). An Android release is expected to follow shortly.

Optimised for iPhone 5 and 4th generation iPadSan Andreas is also compatible with iPhone 4S and above, iPad 2 and above, and the iPod Touch 5th generation.

Described as the “best-looking version of San Andreas yet”, it features dynamic and detailed shadows, greater draw distances, an “enriched” colour palette, and enhanced character and vehicle models.

The game also features remastered visuals, an improved checkpoint system, full controller support and three different touch control schemes.

For optimal performance, Rockstar advises rebooting devices after installing, and closing other applications while playing.

San Andreas was originally released in 2004 and saw players assume the role of Carl Johnson as he battled corrupt cops and gangsters in early ’90s America.

It featured the vocal talents of Samuel L Jackson, Chris Penn, Ice-T and Peter Fonda.
