An update to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has just taken place on Steam, totaling around 500MB in size. [UPDATED]

I have seen unconfirmed reports that this update removes audio tracks from the game that were removed for the 360 and mobile re-release of the game. From what we understand the following tracks have been removed.

Playback FM

  • Ultramagnetic MC’s - Critical Beatdown

Radio Los Santos

  • 2 Pac - I Don’t Give A f*ck
  • Compton’s Most Wanted - Hood Took Me Under
  • NWA - Express Yourself

Bounce FM

  • Fatback - Yum Yum
  • Roy Ayers - Running Away
  • The Gap Band - You Dropped A Bomb On Me

KDST

  • Tom Petty - Running Down A Dream
  • Joe Cocker - Woman to Woman

K-JAH West Radio

  • Black Harmony - Don’t Let It Go to Your Head
  • Blood Sisters - Ring My Bell

Radio:X

  • Ozzy Osbourne - Hellraiser
  • Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name

Master Sounds 98.3

  • Charles Wright - Express Yourself
  • The Blackbyrds - Rock Creek Park
  • James Brown - Funky President
  • Macer & The Macks - Soul Power ‘74
  • James Brown - The Payback
  • The JB’s - Grunt

There are also reports that the removed audio tracks have been replaced, there is no 1080p resolution and that the audio has been completely replaced.

UPDATE: I have tested out the game since the update and the following are confirmed changes:

  • Mouse steering is now enabled by default
  • Loading a previous save will now start a new game

I have reached out to Rockstar for a more comprehensive rundown on what the patch has changed.

The game is still on the Steam store but you have been unable to buy the game for a very long time.
