Rockstar Games launches own games store, gives away Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

What you need to know

  • Every major game developer wants its own games store nowadays.
  • Rockstar Games just announced its own store called the Rockstar Games Launcher.
  • You can manage all of your games made by the company through it.
  • You can download the Rockstar Games Launcher here.

It seems like every major publisher wants its own games store nowadays. Today, Rockstar Games announced the Rockstar Games Launcher. This download allows you to consolidate all of your titles like Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and more. You can also purchase them directly through the program.

However, unlike how the Epic Games Store launched, the Rockstar Games Launcher supports cloud saves. You even get the benefit of automatic updates for supported titles. The press release Windows Central received said that the program has support for "digital and disc-based Rockstar Games titles purchased from other digital stores" on PC.

That's not the best part about the Rockstar Games Launcher though. If you download it right now, you'll get a free digital copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PC to permanently add to your collection. For that alone, we think it's worth it because Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas may be old, but it's a classic. Are you going to give the Rockstar Games Launcher a try? Let us know.
