    In case you were looking for yet another games launcher for your PC, more specifically, for Rockstar games, you've been served! Launched today, the aptly-named Rockstart Games Launcher is your new gateway for anything Rockstar on Windows.

    This brand-new launcher now allows you to access your PC Rockstar games across both digital and disc-based titles including ones purchased from various other digital stores. Additional features include 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.

    As an incentive for you to download this launcher, Rockestar is giving away for an unspecified "limited time" a free copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PC within the Rockstar Games Launcher, to permanently add it to your Social Club account’s library.

    Free as in, install another backdoor trojan on your PC. Seriously though, this is the ruined Android port, without OG music and garbage graphics. Find the OG version and research SilentPatchSA the way it's meant to be played!

    PC gaming is turning into cable TV. Same with online video streaming, actually.

    This much fragmentation is not a good idea.

    I wonder if this comes with anti cheat measures since it launches the games.

    I mean... It's nice if people want a legit copy of SA for free. But for people like me that already own SA... Eh... It's not worth it. But if people don't have it, go for it. Get the legit copy then use SA Downgrader for mod support and the ability to launch the game without the launcher. May be pointless if you have it pirated but at least you'll have it forever to re-download easily.

    Yup! Doing this will have the exact same effect all these tv subscriptions are having: driving people back to piracy.

    stop complaining about having to download more launchers. steam having competition is a good thing.
    alternatively, complain about DRM, that's the entire reason launchers are needed. if you buy a game off GOG or itch, you can simply download the game off the website and run the executable directly. you could even add a link to it from any game launcher of your choice.
    and if you're going to say that all launchers other than steam are malware, just remember that all you have is blind faith in steam because it's also proprietary.

    Since no one cares about this, did you know Rockstar Games was about to work on a Kirby game but didn't

    so every developer that wants DRM on PC games should have to comply with steam's terms?

    Well, hopefully this one wouldn't be doing exclusives.
