Rockstar Games has jumped head-first into the PC gaming market by introducing its own launcher.
Similar to the Blizzard launcher, The Rockstar Launcher was first spied over on Twitter [via Kotaku] and right now there’s seven titles you can buy. Hopefully we’ll see the store expand sooner rather than later, because there’s more than just a couple of Rockstar classics missing from the current lineup.
If, like me, you don’t like paying for anything then you’re in luck, because those who download the launcher are rewarded with a free copy of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. What a neat gift!
According to reports, the game you’ll get is the one that’s available on Steam, meaning it’s based on the mobile version of the game so it’s not as good as the original. But a free game is a free game, amiright?
Over on its official blog, Rockstar writes: “The Rockstar Games Launcher is a new Windows desktop application that allows you to quickly and easily access your Rockstar Games PC collection in a single place, across both digital and disc-based titles including ones purchased from various other digital stores. You can also use the Launcher to shop for new Rockstar Games PC titles to add to your collection.
“The Rockstar Games Launcher comes with a host of features including the addition of cloud save functionality to all supported titles, the ability to keep your Rockstar Games PC library updated automatically, and ways to follow all the latest Rockstar Games news from directly inside the Launcher.”
Also, if you claim your free GTA game then it’s yours to keep forever. Hooray!

Maybe this is where we’ll be able to get Red Dead Redemption 2 from later down the line…?
