This Saturday marks the ten year anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto III. In October of 2001, this revolutionary open-world epic was released to the world – a game that set players loose as a small-time criminal at the bottom of the food chain in Liberty City, a sprawling metropolis where anything can happen – and probably will. We would like to extend our immense gratitude to all GTA fans worldwide for your amazing long-time support, from early on all the way to today. Thank you.

Please enjoy the Anniversary Video above we've put together to help celebrate - and stay tuned for further info about the game's Anniversary Edition release for mobile devices.

By popular demand, you can now adorn your desktop with digital rendition wallpapers (as well as avatars and icons) commemorating the 10th Anniversary Edition of the game. Choose from either the original North American cover montage which introduced Grand Theft Auto's signature cover art aesthetic - or the European release action-packed montage version, each one redesigned in black and white with gold accents. As a bonus, we've also gone back through the archives and dug up all of the originally released character artwork from Grand Theft Auto III, to provide a new set of desktops optimized for today's high definition monitors and mobile devices.
You can grab all your favorites, including 8-Ball, Salvatore Leone, Misty, Donald Love and many more from the Downloads section of the Rockstar Games website right now.

For those who prefer to commemorate tangibly - you can shop for printed posters over at the new Rockstar Warehouse as part of the 10th Anniversary Collection, and pre-order the limited-edition action figure of lead character Claude. This fully articulated 1:6 scale action figure of Claude comes dressed in his original attire of cargo pants and a bomber jacket, but he can also sport his iconic Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit (supplied). The Claude figure comes equipped with an arsenal of classic weapons from Grand Theft Auto III including a bat, knife, grenades, pistol, sniper rifle, and assault rifle.

Stay tuned for more items from the 10th Anniversary Collection to be offered for sale at the Warehouse soon – including the special mugs and t-shirts first seen at last week's New York Comic Con.

Friday October 21st from 5 – 8 PM Eastern, we're honoring the anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III with a special Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition Social Club multiplayer event on PlayStation®Network where we're giving away two hand-painted limited-edition and individually numbered custom Grand Theft Auto PlayStation®3 controllers along with a stocked range of Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary gear including the Claude action-figure and much more. We've also invited some of our most old school luminaries from the GTA fansite world to join us as special guests playing online on both PSN and Xbox LIVE®. Click here for all the details.

As part of our celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto III, let's have all your burning questions about the game. Questions about the characters, about the making of the game, really anything you've been dying to know for the past ten years. We'll select fan questions to be covered in a special edition of Asked & Answered to appear next week - no question should be off-limits to ask provided it's related specifically to Grand Theft Auto III (any questions about the future of the GTA franchise, simply direct yourself to our recent A&A here). Social Club members can drop them in the comments area here, or shoot questions our way via Twitter or Facebook at will.

We'll be wrapping up collecting questions by the end of day this Sunday, October 23rd - so get 'em our way stat.
