GangstarVegas_screen_2048x1536_1In Gameloft’s upcoming title Gangstar Vegas, the fourth installment of their ‘Gangstar’ mobile sandbox gaming franchise, they are bringing the explosive action and devilish debauchery to the sun soaked desert and neon lit strip clubs and casinos of Sin City.

While no official release date (or pricing) has been announced yet we suspect that the game will be available fairly soon. To celebrate the upcoming launch, Gameloft has just released the release “the first part of a new Developer’s Diary for the game, featuring exclusive interviews and gameplay footage”.

Launched in 2009 with the iPhone release of Gangstar: West Coast Hustle (there was no iPad at the time), the Gangstar series is often compared to Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto and has grown to be quite popular on both iOS and Android platforms. The last game in the series, Gangstar Rio: City of Saints was released nearly a year and a half ago and currently has an average rating of 4.5 stars on the iTunes store.

You can check out part one (of three) of the developer diary below:
