Rockstar Games Is The Latest Company To Put Out Its Own PC Game Launcher

In recent years, several companies have tried their hands at creating their own PC game launchers. While Steam and remain mainstay launchers, the Epic Games Store has most recently made waves in the space. Rockstar Games is the latest company to jump in with the hopes of becoming the one stop for all your Grand Theft Auto, Bully, L.A. Noire, and Max Payne 3 needs.

The Rockstar Games Launcher offers all the features of a standard PC game launcher, including cloud saves, the ability to shop for new games, and automatic updates. Right now the store consists of Grand Theft Auto V (and associated Shark Card transactions), L.A. Noire: Complete Edition, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Max Payne 3: Complete Edition, and Bully: Scholarship Edition.

If you want to download the Rockstar Games Launcher, you can head here. Doing so will get you a free copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. If you already had copies of Grand Theft Auto V or Max Payne 3 installed on your PC, you will use the Rockstar Games Launcher to access them after you install it. All of your existing data should transfer in.

Now we just need to play the waiting game for when Rockstar announces it'll finally bring its best game to the platform and storefront, right? I mean, it's a crime that Table Tennis is nowhere to be found.
