The sport has not been formally introduced but, however due to leaks and rumours we all know that the sport is in early improvement. Nonetheless, we propose that you simply take all the data from this text with a grain of salt. Now that’s out of the best way, right here’s every part we expect we learn about GTA VI:
GTA VI: Location & Setting
Rockstar attracts enormous inspirations from huge cities like Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and London for the places for its GTA instalments. Rockstar’s huge three cities have all the time been San Andreas, Liberty Metropolis, and Vice Metropolis that are based mostly on Los Angeles, New York and Miami, respectively. Just like how Rockstar returned to Liberty Metropolis for GTA IV and San Andreas for GTA V, it’s extensively anticipated that GTA VI will return to Vice Metropolis.
One idea that has been actually in style on-line has been that GTA VI will happen over a number of international locations primarily Miami, USA and a brand new fictional metropolis based mostly on Rio De Janeiro, Brazil with gamers having the ability to fly between them. The extra seemingly idea is that this new fictional metropolis might be restricted identical to Ludendorff in GTA V. The identical leaker additionally means that some missions might be based mostly in Liberty Metropolis which may also be fairly restricted and linear.
GTA video games based mostly on Vice Metropolis largely thrive on being set within the Nineteen Seventies and Eighties, proper round when the hippie revolution began to say no. GTA VI looks like it won’t be an exception to this, though we might like to see Rockstar’s tackle a neon-nightlight Miami set within the current time.
GTA VI: Storyline & Missions
Similar to all earlier Grand Theft Auto video games, GTA VI may also primarily be based mostly on criminality, violence and medicines. Being set in Vice Metropolis, the story for GTA VI is definitely going to be influenced by drug empires. In actual fact, one leak suggests that the protagonist, seemingly named Ricardo, is an up and coming druglord wannabe who begins off as a grunt doing runs as a cocaine smuggler from Vice Metropolis to the brand new South American space earlier than making connections with big-time drug lords and making his approach up. The identical leaker means that the storyline for GTA VI is very impressed by Netflix’s Narcos, a TV collection concerning the lifetime of Pablo Escobar and the origins of the cocaine commerce. The sport may also focus on matters like HIV and the immigration issues of that period.
The narrative for GTA VI will seemingly function a chapter system, just like Rockstar’s Pink Lifeless Redemption 2. GTA VI missions are going to be fairly free and can allow you to select your individual paths with many attention-grabbing facet quests all through the storyline. The size of the storyline is reportedly going to be about 60-hours lengthy.
GTA VI: Mechanics
Grand Theft Auto video games are extremely detailed and expansive, which make the sandbox-style single-player sport mode extraordinarily enjoyable. Leaks counsel that GTA VI will function a drug empire-building mechanic just like GTA Vice Metropolis, however merely greater. Your participant will solely be capable to have weapons in your individual, not an arsenal within the again pocket, like in earlier video games. As time will progress in-game buildings will change and older, basic vehicles will change into rarer and dearer.
The climate is meant to be an enormous a part of the sport with storms, hurricanes and floods bringing modifications to town. It is possible for you to to retailer weapons, ammunition, and armour within the trunk of your automobile and in case you resolve to put on armour it gained’t be invisible like earlier video games, including that rather more element to the sport. The subsequent iteration of GTA may also see builders focusing closely on non-player characters with passers-by commenting in your outfits, exclaiming in the event that they see a basic automobile on the road, or honking and overtaking if they’re in a rush. GTA video games are incomplete with out minigames a few of which embody Browsing, Windsurfing and Curler Derby.
GTA VI: Launch Date & Launch Platforms
Predicting the discharge date of Grand Theft Auto VI goes to be very tough as we all know that its prequel, GTA V, is quickly going to be remastered for the PS5 and Xbox Collection X, S consoles. Logically, Rockstar would give some cool off time earlier than releasing GTA VI, in an try to stop cannibalising their gross sales. In line with a report, “a brand new entry within the Grand Theft Auto collection,” is early in improvement as of April 2020, so it is extremely onerous to think about GTA VI popping out within the subsequent 12-18 months. One leak means that the sport might be launched in October 2023, however bear in mind these are simply leaks and nothing is official.
Don’t fear although, all hope isn’t misplaced. A new job listing by Rockstar hints at a GTA VI trailer popping out quickly. Rockstar’s profession web page has been promoting for a brand new function, Cinematic Gameplay Seize Artist. The job description for a similar reads “The Gameplay Seize workforce works with our video modifying and trailer groups to supply excellent movies utilizing completely in-game photographs.” The function additionally desires a “World-class participant of present platform (PS5, Xbox Collection X, PS4, Xbox One, PC) online game titles.” This might simply be for the GTA trilogy which is reportedly being remastered for Xbox Collection X, S and PS5, but when it isn’t then it implies that GTA VI is developed sufficient to the purpose the place Rockstar is assured in revealing it with a trailer quickly.
In line with rumours and speculations, the launch for GTA VI might be restricted, with the single-player mode popping out first with the GTA On-line counterpart launching later. This launch sample appears seemingly, particularly after Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said that Rockstar Video games will proceed to make single-player video games, “The oldsters at Rockstar Video games meant to create a strong single-player expertise a story-driven expertise. And Rockstar has all the time been recognized for excellent tales and nice single-player experiences after which developed as well as, an enormous multiplayer alternative over the previous years. There was, I feel, there was an argument simply a few years in the past, not round right here, not on this store, however in a few of our rivals’ workplaces, that single-player is lifeless, that it is all about multiplayer,” he mentioned. “We did not imagine that I mentioned particularly and publicly that we did not imagine that, our labels do not imagine that.” This all but confirms that the subsequent GTA could have a single-player mode and that this style of gaming isn’t lifeless but.
The sport will nearly undoubtedly launch solely on the next-gen consoles and won’t launch on the Xbox One and PS4 seeing how Cyberpunk 2077 had a really buggy launch. Right here’s to hoping we will play GTA VI quickly and that the builders at Rockstar make use of the superb haptics and Adaptive Triggers within the Twin Sense Controller.
