It has been 10 years for the reason that launch of the sensible GTA V, and our need for the subsequent recreation is beginning to burn brighter and warmer. With numerous faux leaks and speculations, we’re all too inquisitive about what the long run holds close to the sixth instalment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. So, listed below are 5 issues that we’re excited to get solutions for.
Among the objects on this checklist are questions which have been fuelled by the current rumors and leaks. That isn’t to say, nevertheless, that what has supposedly been revealed is credible. So, please don’t come looking us down with an Apache helicopter in the event that they don’t come to cross!
How Huge Will Vice Metropolis Be?
One factor that we’re fairly sure of now, is that the collection will likely be returning to sunny and vibrant Vice City. The franchise hasn’t been there since GTA: Vice Metropolis Tales was launched again in October 2006, and was initially seen within the GTA: Vice Metropolis base recreation in 2002.
It will likely be fascinating to see how town has been modified and added to, now that the probabilities inside recreation design have modified a lot. Vice Metropolis and Vice Metropolis Tales each ran on engines from the identical technology of consoles, so there are over 20 years of adjustments to witness.
The factor that’s on our minds essentially the most although, is how massive is every thing going to be? Will some components keep just like the 2002 instalment? With locations corresponding to Downtown, Little Havana, and Little Haiti we are able to envision them turning into a lot bigger than the final time we noticed them.
These are areas that might really feel actually immersive on a bigger scale. Nonetheless, with spots like Ocean Seaside and Starfish Island, how massive do it’s good to go? In our minds, not that massive truly.
The wonderful thing about these places is that, despite the fact that the map wasn’t enormous in GTA: Vice Metropolis itself, they felt like areas that labored properly on a smaller scale. Starfish Island is clearly the separate island getaway for the wealthy, and Ocean Seaside felt like a pleasant, smaller sandy spot that was then contrasted by Washington Seaside’s longer stretch of land.
We’re certain that no matter Rockstar do with the map design will likely be nice, however we hope that there’ll nonetheless be just a few smaller, extra intimate locations paying homage to the sport that first launched us to the Miami look alike metropolis 20 years in the past.
Will There Be Interactions with Unique Vice Metropolis Characters?
The character forged from Vice Metropolis was iconic. Rockstar often handle to make Grand Theft Auto video games iconic anyway, however this was undoubtedly close to the highest of the checklist.
We all know that a few of the voice actors who portrayed folks within the unique recreation are not with us, corresponding to Ray Liotta (relaxation in peace). Nonetheless, it could be superior to see some OG characters in GTA VI.
We’re fairly certain that there’ll at the very least be homages to a few of them, or presumably simply Tommy Vercetti. However, it will likely be nice to see, as Vice Metropolis was the lobby into the Grand Theft Auto collection for lots of people (who have been undoubtedly 18 or over… yep).
Will We See Characters From GTA V?
That is admittedly just like what we questioned above, nevertheless, we do know from previous video games that Rockstar like to incorporate characters from different GTA video games, that didn’t initially present up within the metropolis the place the sport they make a cameo look in takes place.
For some examples, now we have seen the likes of Ken Rosenberg (initially from Vice Metropolis) present up in GTA: San Andreas in Las Venturas. We have now additionally seen Claude (initially from GTA III) present up in GTA: San Andreas as properly, regardless of the actual fact his run as protagonist came about in Liberty Metropolis.
There are typically mentions of previous protagonists as properly, even when they don’t seem within the recreation in any respect. Such an instance is when in GTA V, Lester hints to Niko Bellic from GTA IV; when he states:
“There was an Japanese European man making strikes in Liberty Metropolis however, nah.. he went quiet”
Lester Crest, Grand Theft Auto V
He additionally mentions the “Irish crazies” referring to the McReary’s who have been additionally in GTA IV. You’ll be able to truly discover Patrick McReary in GTA V as properly. He’s exterior of a retailer doing a take, and could be recruited as a member of your crew for those who full his getaway mission.
Seeing and listening to of earlier characters from the collection is just not a necessity, however provided that Rockstar have a historical past of doing it, it could be good to see once more!
How Completely different Will the Physics Engine Be?
The physics engine in GTA V is fairly good. Having Michael crash by means of a automobile window is all the time gratifying. Nonetheless, there was a noticeable downgrade between IV and V by way of what the sport might deal with bodily.
Followers of the collection have even made videos on the topic, evaluating the 2 engines. They usually level out how GTA IV admittedly had superior ragdoll and automobile physics. This is because of the truth that GTA IV was forward of its time. When it got here to GTA V, the predecessor was going to be arduous to beat, so it was scaled again.
These aren’t the be all and finish all in video games. Given although, that there was such a protracted hole between entries, and that two full generations of consoles have been launched, now we have to ponder if the extra spectacular physics from IV will make an look in GTA VI.
The graphics and story are greater than doubtless going to be unbelievable as all the time. However there’s all the time room to marvel precisely what could be explored mechanically, that wasn’t potential in 2013 when the final recreation launched.
Which Celebrities are Going to Host the Radio Stations?
The radio stations in Grand Theft Auto video games are legendary at this level. It doesn’t matter what recreation you choose from the 3D universe, you will get some stations with nice songs, and humorous speak present segments.
A standard theme within the video games, is that they usually have actual world celebrities internet hosting the stations. This makes good acquainted grounding by means of actual life recognition. It additionally creates hilarity by means of meta conditions, and hyper enjoying into the celeb’s personal personalities.
Some glorious examples of celebrities who’ve appeared within the video games to host stations previously are:
- Kenny Loggins (singer of Hazard Zone from the Prime Gun soundtrack).
- Cara Delevingne (mannequin and actress in such movies as Suicide Squad and Paper Cities).
- Axl Rose (singer of Weapons ‘n’ Roses)
- Juliette Lewis (actress in movies corresponding to Cape Concern and Pure Born Killers).
- Philip Anthony-Rodriquez (actor in CSI: NY, CSI: Miami and Fashionable Household).
- Iggy Pop (singer of The Stooges).
- Frank Ocean (singer and rapper from Odd Future).
A current rumor steered that Joe Rogan is to voice a podcast on one of many GTA VI stations. That is unconfirmed, but when correct may very well be a very fascinating idea.
The video games have all the time had humorous interview segments. Normally, involving intriguing and typically unusual folks. Among the finest examples is KChat from GTA: Vice Metropolis. Friends that appeared ranged from a viking to a dolphin coach that falls in love with the animals he retains (within the bizarre and fallacious means).
Figuring out this, it could be unsurprising, and on model for Joe Rogan to have his personal bit within the upcoming instalment.
We might, after all, hope to listen to different acquainted voices as properly. Fingers crossed that Rockstar choose a terrific playlist and write some memorable quips!
It nonetheless could also be a while till we get some concrete proof as to when GTA VI will likely be arriving. Within the meantime although, we’ll proceed to dream of Vice Metropolis, and let our imaginations wander and marvel on the potential options that we’d see when it lastly releases.
You already know, 20 years from now, after we’re sending our children off to school and whatnot…
