Rockstar Games has finally given their loyal fans what they’ve been waiting for: an early release of the GTA 6 trailer after a 10-year hiatus. The attention to detail and love put into the game is evident from the trailer. Taking cues from GTA IV, GTA V, and Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA 6 seems to be the sum of everything Rockstar has created in the past decade.
The story will revolve around two playable characters, Lucia and Jason, in an adventure reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde. We see Lucia in prison attire at the beginning of the trailer, hinting at a possible escape or release back into a life of crime. The game will likely involve heists, high-speed chases, and a rags-to-riches storyline.
Returning to Vice City, which now extends into a larger, more beautiful, and intricately designed world, the game showcases the luxury and grittiness of Miami. The open world includes bayous, hick towns, islands, and an array of high-rise buildings and city streets.
The attention to detail is apparent in the wildlife, with alligator, flamingo, and pelican animations inspired by the graphics of RDR 2. The NPCs exhibit intricate behaviors, styles, and personalities in real-time, filling up every frame with rich and detailed content representative of the city’s culture.
The vibrant social media culture of Miami is also depicted in the trailer. The game portrays a combination of social media, CCTV-inspired footage, and news, offering a glimpse into the city’s inhabitants’ lifestyles.
Finally, the disappointing news of a 2025 release date was revealed at the end of the trailer, leaving eager fans to wait another year for the highly-anticipated release. Despite the wait, the teaser trailer has left fans eagerly anticipating the arrival of the next GTA installment, with the hope for more trailers to come.
