'Grand Theft Auto III' (ALL) Celebrates 10th Anniversary With Mobile Version, Action Figure

Capturing the same freedom and non-linearity of the original games, Grand Theft Auto 3 now lives and breathes in a diligently re-engineered, complete 3D world.

In conjunction with the celebration, Rockstar will release Grand Theft Auto III for select new generation iOS and Android devices in the fall (a full list of devices is available).

"Grand Theft Auto III showed us the potential of open world games,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “It helped set the vision for the company, and we have been expanding on those possibilities with every game ever since.”

Mobile versions of the game will be available to play at the 2011 New York Comic-Con from October 14-16, 2011. Attendees of the show will be able to tour the Grand Theft Auto III gallery featuring the game’s signature art, and will also have the opportunity to win special anniversary edition Grand Theft Auto III and Rockstar Games merchandise. For those unable to attend, the Rockstar Warehouse is relaunching today, where the special anniversary edition items will be available for purchase throughout October.

Beginning today, the limited-edition action figure of Grand Theft Auto III lead character, Claude, will be available for pre-order through the Rockstar Warehouse. The action figure will be on sale on October 20. The fully articulated 1:6 scale Claude figure comes dressed in his original attire of cargo pants and a bomber jacket, and is also supplied with his iconic Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit. The Claude figure is equipped with an arsenal of classic weapons from Grand Theft Auto III, including a bat, knife, grenades, pistol, sniper rifle, and assault rifle. Rockstar Social Club members can enter to win one of three Claude action figures through October 16 by visiting.
