San Andreas PC - Further Details and Screenshots

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 02:02 PM MDT | By Neil
Our friends at German fansite GTAReactor have provided us with four brand new screenshots of GTA: San Andreas' PC version. They also posted a short summary of the eight-page article which appeared in Gamestar magazine.
  • Draw distance is vastly improved in the PC version
  • The development team are trying extra hard to ensure the game looks as good as possible. Much higher resolution models, real time reflection mapping (think Vice City on Xbox) and higher polygon models are all included.
  • MP3 music stations are back. This time, however, your MP3's will be complimented by a DJ and some advertisements, just like a real radio station!


Find more screenshots on our new GTA San Andreas PC Screenshots page!

maybe the reason the graphics don't look improved is because they are scanned?

Yeah these scans don't do a terribly good job of portraying how much better it looks.

I guess you guys should look at the smoothness of the edges of objects. Most modern graphics cards can do this technique (known as Anti-Aliasing) and if you've got a decent spec PC, you'll be able to have the game look like this too.

Wait a little longer and Rockstar will release digital screenshots on the official site. Then you'll really appriciate it!

I like DJ for your MP3 Player, but advertisements... might get annoying.. since it's a MP3 Player not a radio station.

I hope you can turn off the DJ and advertisements...Its a nice touch, but it could get real annoying for those who make their own stations.

For my own MP3s, it would be great.

It looks great, but if it doesnt have multiplayer for the mini games, that would be disappointing. Maybe Rockstar doesn't want to relive the problem they had with GTA1 and 2 multiplayer.

Ah, if only we (and affliate companies) gave Rockstar more time to finish the PS2 version, I bet it'd look as good as this. :/

christianrrf, I'm only speculating, but I think you should be able to run the game.

Please don't take my word as gospel, I could be wrong. We'll have to wait on an official announcement before it is certain.
