Rockstar Games has published its own game launcher, giving Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas up for independent with the platform’s debut.
The Rockstar Games Launcher is the main hub for everything Rockstar on Windows PC. At launch in the store, Bully: Scholarship Edition is priced at $14.99, Max Pain 3: Complete Edition is for $34.98, L.A. Noire: Complete Edition is for $29.99, Grand Theft Auto 3 is for $9.99, Grand Theft Auto 5: Premium Edition is for $34.98, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is for $9.99.
Once it is downloaded, the Rockstar Games Launcher will inquire to scan your PC for any presently installed Rockstar titles and will grab them into the launcher. All saves should also transition into the launcher. You will need the application to play these games. It will also link your Rockstar Social Club account to cloud saves and automatically update games.
Essentially, it is exactly what you would expect from a firm’s own launcher; it does not appear to be drastically smashing the mold from any other out there. And there are a few publisher-specific ones which are available: the Rockstar Games Launcher conjoins apps like Electronic Arts’ Origin, Ubisoft’s Uplay, and the Bethesda.net Launcher.
The Rockstar Games Launcher is accessible now for PC from the Rockstar website.
It is not clear yet what this implies for the future of Rockstar’s games on PC. However, many Rockstar fans are inferring that this modern launcher is further evidence that Red Dead Redemption 2 will ultimately be available for PC players.
There is not much in the Rockstar Launcher yet, however, if you do not own San Andreas it is worth figuring out. However, as per GTA data miners, the version is similar to the Steam version which is based on the cellphone ports and is losing some graphical touches and music.
