393580_largerGameloft's open-world game, Gangstar Vegas [Free], received some content love the other day via a big, almost "Mad Max" themed update. Specifically, a quest tree under the name "Mojave Apocalypse" was added, bringing in 11 new missions and three new enemies. Jason also got a new suit suitably themed for the post-apocalyptic shenanigans, as well as a new mohawk because mohawks are totally "in" during the end of the world. Everyone knows that.

Some of these new missions, by the way, include two new types: Skydive and Delivery. The skydiving was a point of emphasis in this update, as Gameloft has "reworked" the free-fall feature of the game to allow users to "fully control [their] skydiving."


Also, the controls? They've been reworked. Bug fixes and tweaks are also a part of this package.

For what it's worth, Gangstar Vegas is a pretty competent open-world shooter game, and it's easily the best original one for iPad and iPhone. Despite some control issues, we had some bursts of fun when we gave it a shot around launch.

    I deleted this because the controls were so horrendous. I may give it another shot if I can clear the space.

      I agree. I wasn't really font of the tap to turn type controls in this and GTA titles on the App Store. Hopefully they changed it to the swipe able steering wheel like In previous gangstar titles.

        Damn auto correct

        The controls are almost completely customization, I thought.

      Has anybody updated?! Anyone care to share if the controls are actually better or just gameloft fixed?

    Probably one of my favorite games on IOS right now.

    Looks like they were able to capitalize on the fact that the city was empty. Making is post-apocalyptic is a good way to mask the lifeless environment.

      Lol, still enjoyed playing it

      Wait what? I saw almost too much activity on my run through, unless I moved to the outskirts of the city.

      Anyway, if this content update is worth anything then I regret having deleted the game...

    They fixed the controls, you can either use gyro, the arrows or slider bar. This game is worth the purchase. Solid so far.
