Can't get enough of open world sandbox crime games? Well, Gameloft has what you need. Gangstar Rio: City of Saints is on its way to the App Store, and per this brand new gameplay trailer, is packed with helicopters, limos, tanks, explosions, and everything else a good crime spree requires. Take a look:

No release date yet, but it's coming "very soon." My bets are on this being part of Gameloft's upcoming holiday lineup, which definitely (in my eyes) means it'll be out way before the holiday rush- Potentially as early as next week.

    Gangstar, City of Saints? Man, theyre brushing a broader stroke with this game.

  • gee

    i hope this one looks graphically good cause the last 2 gangstar games looked like crap.

    Looks pretty bad to be honest. Gameloft really need better voice acting too.

    Just waiting for GTA. Screw this it looks like crap!

  • Lamar Taylor

    I like this and GTA...so I'll buy both and enjoy both for what they offer.

    Now that the real GTA is headed to iOS I suspect Gameloft's free reign is soon to end.

    The last one was so buggy it stopped being fun after just a few missions. I'll wait a good while before I even consider buying this.

    This is my favorite series for ios, and I'm buying this game the second it comes out.

    It's likely that this game is coming out next Thursday at midnight.

    So this is Gameloft´s ripoff of Saints Row? Check!

    I will never buy a Gameloft game as they only ripoff known franchises. Modern Combat? Really?
    PUKE.

      lol have you even played modern combat?

    • Benjamin Rodriguez

      Until other companies stop being a pansy ass about profit margin on ios devices, I'll happily stick with gameloft, even if subpar. And like jim said, try it before you knock it, cause modern combat 3 is one of the best fps games out there.

        I refuse to buy anything Gameloft as they so blatantly ripoff known franchises. Starcraft, Diablo, CoD, Assasins Creed and so on, the list goes on. No thank you!

        Innovate, don´t imitate!

        Fat chance. When was the last time you saw something trully original? Genuinely new ideas are so rare, why not enjoy the improvements on the old one? It sounds like you're being needlessly stubborn while the rest of us enjoy some games that are actually quite good.

        GAMELOFT IS UBISOFTS SISTER COMPANY. IT EVEN SHOWS YOU UBISOFT LOGO FOR A FEW SECS IN BEGGINING OF AC FOR IOS. GET OVER IT.

    Another soulless GameLoft knockoff.  Bleh.

  • Fábio Justino Ornelas

    they actually have some decent rip offs, but  gangstar series were never a good example.
    They should tottaly pay better voice acting and try to curse better in portuguese (no one says "puta do caralho")

  • Dave Pilgrim

    I read about this one on the Game Apps blog and I am excited about this game coming out.

    Haha, I think it's funny how mad people are at Gameloft. In my opinion I'm glad that Gameloft keeps pushing iOs gaming towards the future :)

    • Chris Aanerud

      You mean pushing iOS gaming toward 8 years ago.

      • Anonymous

        What do you mean mate? There was nothing called ios gaming 8 years ago? Was just saying that I think Gameloft is good for making grapghics and quality of ios games higher and higher, which puts the preassure on other developers = better games for our idevices :) Please dont be one of those people comparing mobile phones to consoles and pc ;)

    I'm just glad that a new Gangstar game will be released soon. Also, If I wasn't for success of The Gangstar series, Rockstar may never bring a full-fleged GTA to iOS.

  • Agent Strahm

    Lol "GAMELOFT RIP OFF GAMES" dudes, you should be happy about it. I hope Gameloft rips off Super Mario or Pokemon some day, we need it.

  • Jason Mannello

    i never fully played GTA game until vice city came to mac recently. I have however played the last 2 gangstar games and personally by comparison i like those better. had alot of fun and less frustration playing them

    Quite a big rip off of Saints Row and GTA but since Saints Row isn't on app store (what the hell whoever produces that ledgish series) and GTA on iPod is like old GTA (shity birdseye view) it's the best avabile. The people at gameloft must have really dirty minds though because the first gangstar(West Coast Hustle) had a sex scene, doing jobs for a pornstar and your dude asks if he can enter her gentleman's club. In the 2nd one there's a dirty guy called REginald who get's you to drop of prosute, drive them around and kill people hurting them. TAhis one is of simerly lines. Gameloft, were not all freaky Pedo's and Rapists
