Popular action game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was always a single player game from the beginning (except the parts where a second player can shoot from the car, but that's hardly multiplayer). But as of yesterday, the talented team of programmers that brought us Multi Theft Auto: Vice City have released their new multiplayer mod for San Andreas.
22 year old
"Blokker_1999" from Belgium, a MTA developer, posted the following statement on the project's forum:
"Almost 8 months ago we started working on a multiplayer modification for a brand new game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, called Multi Theft Auto (MTA).
This release is the first MTA we've ever released based on our new
revolutionary "Blue" technology and features the gamemode "Race"."

The process of developing this release has been a lot of hard work
and quite a few long nights, especially when most of our team members
are busy with their real lives, but now we're glad to announce that
we're finally ready to show you our work. We've been looking forward to
this for a very long time and we're certainly very happy with how it
looks. We hope you like it too! Smile
This release also features a very easy to use map editor allowing
anyone to create a map containing spawnpoints, checkpoints, objects and
"pickups". The maps created can be added to an MTA server and played
online with your friends at any time.
