The official trailer for GTA 6 is finally out, and the 1 minute and 30 second trailer nicely highlights what fans can expect from the game when it launches in 2025.
The trailer opens with a sunset in Vice City, Rockstar’s fictional Miami, and then reveals Lucia – the first female protagonist in the GTA franchise. Throughout the runtime, we can see several details surrounding the story, including a possible relationship between Jason, the male protagonist, and Lucia, possibly inspired by Bonnie and Clyde.
While most of the trailer shows a significant focus on the in-game social media element that satirizes American culture like previous Rockstar games, some details may have been missed.
Let’s see what Rockstar has in store for players after the release of GTA 6:
Buildings with interiors?
In the trailer, some buildings seem to have explorable interiors, especially the more detailed ones. This could be a definite possibility, as many GTA fans have expressed their wish for the buildings to include a more immersive experience. It’s unclear if most buildings would be explorable, but large buildings are entirely possible.
New dog breed and regional animals
If you look closely, you can see a tiny Chihuahua running alongside an admirer during the beach scene in the trailer. This is definitely a new addition and it is possible that we may see other new dog breeds as well.
In addition to dogs, we also saw local birds and, of course, alligators. There will definitely be more animals in the game, which will provide interesting gameplay opportunities and maybe even hunting.
Leonida is not limited to Vice City
GTA 6 is expected to be huge in scale, much bigger than GTA 5. This is evident from the scale shown in the trailer. It is an endless horizon of buildings in some pictures. In addition to the neon-lit city of Vice City, you can explore other areas inspired by the state of Florida. As you can see from the trailer, you’ll visit swamplands, beaches, borders, and more.
If you look closely at the beach scene, not only do you see a lot of NPCs, but everything from the animations to the NPCs’ appearance is a clear step up from the previous game. Two NPCs can be seen clicking pictures in the right corner of the frame, while two hobbyists are running with their dog. People can also be seen relaxing on the beach, using their phones, spraying on sunscreen and creating content on social media.
The scale seems huge, and with lifelike NPCs inhabiting it, we’re sure to be in for a treat when it launches in 2025.
