Rockstar announce GTA6 trailer date and social media is going berserk

Rockstar Games made everyone’s day when they announced a new trailer for the upcoming GTA6 video game was imminent.

And now we have a date for the official peek at GTA6: 5 December.

That’s right – it’s set to go live on Tuesday, 5 December at 9am ET to be exact.

And we consider those palm trees a Vice City teaser.

Time to set a reminder.

Fans are, predictably, pretty excited and took to social media to share their thoughts and predictions.

“I’m like a kid on Christmas Eve. I can’t wait,” one said.

“ITS HAPPENING!!!!!” said another.

“Wow, I’m still alive for it! YESSSSS!!” joked a third.

So what do we already know?

Rumors say GTA VI could be the best GTA ever but here’s what we actually know so far about the long-awaited drop of GTA VI.

First up, the maps of the world of GTA VI have been uncovered.

They revealed that it includes well over 100 unique locations to explore.

While most of the game will stay play out in Vice City, new locations include Port Gellhorn, Keys, Sundown, Ambrosia, and Redhill.

That’s in addition to more underwater spots to explore.

It’s predicted that the map may be as much as one-and-a-half-times bigger than its predecessor.

It’s also whispered that Rockstar Games will continuously update the game.

This means that more missions and cities will be available for players to explore, Eurogamer reports.

What’s more, the wanted system of GTA VI looks like it will be completely different to the previous games.

Changes include ‘witnesses’ being able to pass your physical description along to the authorities.

Other upgrades for GTA VI that have fans excited include money laundering, hacking and a Bonnie and Clyde-type dynamic.

In fact, according to a report by Bloomberg last year, it’s been rumored that the game will actually have a female lead for the first time.

The publication informed us that the “woman is Latina and will be one of a pair of leading characters in a story influenced by the bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde”

In a leak of GTA VI gameplay, fans noticed that police AI was notably more advanced.

This has sparked hopes that other NPCs will also get an upgrade minus the glitches of previous interations.

GTA VI is expected to be one of the most significant entertainment releases of the decade.

Launched in 2013, its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto V, has sold more than 185 million copies.

In fact, it’s the second-best selling video game of all time.

It falls just behind Minecraft, which may have had the edge due to being playable on phones.
