GTA 6 Leaked Details
Due to hardware limitations, the GTA 6 will reportedly not support any current generation gaming consoles which include the PS4 and the Xbox One. The game will most likely run on the latest-gen consoles of that time, which is most likely to be the PlayStation 5. As reported previously, the console is expected to be released in the latter half of the year 2020 or early 2021, which lines up with the release of the game.
If any gamers are familiar with the key terms “Liberty City” and “Vice City”, be prepared to hear them a lot more times. Reports suggest that GTA 6 will be set against the picturesque sunsets of Liberty City and Vice City in Miami. And this is good news since it will give gamers a chance to re-live the legacy that built the game we love today. The game is likely to have some sort of “quick travel” mechanic that would enable the player to transition between different cities. If this leak is legitimate, Grand Theft Auto fans have a huge treat waiting for them.
The protagonist of the game will lead an empire business, starting out small time and then reaching the big ranks. Or that’s what the leaks suggest. The player will be tasked to look after a business in Liberty City, following which he will become the “drug lord” of Vice City. Oh, and the 2004 San Andreas map from the company may also be included in the upcoming iteration. Fans will be elated if something of this sort happens. Having the best three maps till date in one single game? Nothing comes closer to gaming nostalgia than this.
The landscapes of the game are hinted to be mostly countrysides and mountains, which will be linked together using beautifully carved roads and designed bridges. This is supposed to make traversing fun so that players can actually enjoy the aesthetics of the game to the maximum even while they’re not a part of an objective. Noteworthy, one of the biggest things that set GTA 5’s gameplay apart was the quality of real-time multiplayer, which is expected to be perfected in the upcoming game. Leaks suggest that Rockstar Games is working with Microsoft and Sony to enhance cloud gaming, which will provide a seamless online gaming experience to users.
