Where to buy GTASA
This page outlines some of the places Grand Theft Auto San Andreas can be bought and played with MTA:SA (sometimes with an automatic downgrade step).
Not all of the GTA versions listed below have been tested, but all should work correctly. If not, try reinstalling MTA. If that doesn't work, follow these instructions. If that still doesn't work, then please contact us on on the forums, or join the MTA Discord #help-support channel.
|Retailer||Notes||Works with MTA:SA?|
|Steam||Specialized Steam version of the game.
MTA installer will make this compatible for you (make sure to install the latest version of MTA after installing the Steam GTA version), but without modifying original game files.
|Amazon||For the Standard edition of the game, if MTA is incompatible, visit this topic and follow the instructions, or try obtaining a GTA SA 1.00 No CD - any HOODLUM release will function correctly.||Unconfirmed (Standard)|
|Steam version and disc copies of GTA:SA will work fine.||Yes (Steam/Boxed DVD)|
|GamersGate||To our knowledge, these vendors are offering Steam versions of the game (make sure to verify), and therefore will function similarly to the first entry in this article (Retailer: Steam).||Yes|
|Rockstar Games Launcher||It is recommended to get GTA:SA straight from the Rockstar Games Launcher application rather than the webshop page.||Yes|
|Windows App Store||This is a mobile/Xbox "remastered" version of the game ported to PC. Will never work with MTA.||No|
