Seemingly everyone who frequents the Google Play Store was excited to know that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was headed to Android, but an unfortunate blunder plagued Rockstar’s launch and forced the game developer to pull the title. It was originally explained to be an error with the authentication process which meant the game was inaccessible to anyone who bought it. Rockstar said we probably wouldn’t be waiting much longer than the end of this week to see i back in the Play Store, and we’re happy to say that particular estimation was accurate.

You can grab Vice City for $5 right now, and it should come without many issues as long as you have a phone decent enough to play it. It’ll cost you 1.4GB of bandwidth so be sure to stick to WiFi if your carrier charges for data overages. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was originally released for the PlayStation 2 in 2002, and this year marks its 10th anniversary. Rockstar’s celebrating that by bringing the fables of Tommy Vercetti to mobile for one very attractive price point.

Vice City for Android will be even better than it was on consoles with its updated, high resolution visuals and adjustable graphics. The game is compatible with gamepads like the MOGA, or you can customize the on-screen controls however you want in case Rockstar’s default configuration isn’t to your liking. Get over to the Google Play Store and grab this one before it disappears before our very eyes again.
