Rockstar releases its own PC games launcher

Grand Theft Auto giant Rockstar has released its own games launcher for its PC titles.

In a blog update to its website, the company announced that 2004’s Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas would be free for a limited time for those who download the new desktop application.

“For a limited time, install the Rockstar Games Launcher and claim a free copy of the classic Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PC within the Rockstar Games Launcher, to permanently add it to your Social Club account’s library,” said Rockstar

The Rockstar Games Launcher has various features such as a cloud save function to all titles that support it. You can stay up to date with the latest company news, and the games library will update automatically.

All your Rockstar games are kept in one place, even titles purchased on disc or from other storefronts. A shop is built into the app, offering all compatible Rockstar games.

The current titles available are Grand Theft Auto III, Bully: Scholarship Edition, L.A. Noire, Max Payne 3, Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and L.A. Noire The VR Case Files. However, the latter cannot be purchased on Rockstar's store.

Not all titles are supported, however. Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto 2, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, Manhunt, Midnight Club 2, Grand Theft Auto IV and Max Payne are all unavailable at launch.
