A high definition remaster received a physical release on both the Xbox 360 and the Play Station 3 on 30 June 2015 and 1 December 2015, respectively.
There are five friends in total, which become available at different times during the storyline.
The single-player story follows Carl "CJ" Johnson, who returns home to Los Santos from Liberty City after his mother's murder.
Carl finds his old friends and family in disarray, and over the course of the game he attempts to re-establish his old gang, clashes with corrupt cops, and gradually unravels the truth behind his mother's murder.
It isn't as simple as just confronting them and going out, as each of the girlfriends usually have a certain taste when it comes to how CJ looks; some like him fat, while others might like him with muscles, so it's important to know what to look like before going after one of the girls.
Denise and Millie are the only two girlfriends who don't care what CJ looks like.
It was released for the PC on June 7, 2005 for North America, June 10, 2005 for Europe and January 4, 2008 for Steam.
