If you’re looking for Easter eggs in the newly released GTA VI trailer – we’ve got you.
You can watch the hotly anticipated trailer below:
The GTA VI trailer is unbelievable, and comes with an extra treat – a release date, which will be some time in 2025.
What we know so far is that game play will be in Vice City – the trailer’s date announcement pretty much confirmed that.
What’s more, as predicted the game will feature a Bonnie and Clyde-style couple as the two main protagonists.
Both are playable and, just like in GTA 5, each character will have a certain set of skills and missions.
However, this time their storylines will collide during game play.
So what might you have missed that Rockstar is teasing?
First up: Patriot Beer is back.
We first saw the brand in GTA IV and GTA V, but it’s had a makeover.
Believed to be based on Samuel Adams, the new logo looks suspiciously similar.
It wouldn’t be a Grand Theft Auto game without Logger Beer and Piswasser being back.
‘Piswasser Nein’ and ‘Logger Light Dreich’ are presumably the new alcohol-free versions.
‘Dreich’ is the Scottish word meaning gloomy and dull – which says a lot bout the brand’s take on teetotalism.
An ad for a new Spanish beer called ‘Pindayho’ is a reference to ‘pendejo’.
We’ll leave you to Google what that means.
The store the ad appears in also has a notice on the door.
It informs patrons: “We will no longer accept cash stored in underwear”.
Another patriotic touch is ‘Weazel News’, with flag-like stripes on its logo.
It’s a reference to Fox News – which is known to be right-leaning – with the animal tweak an apparent political statement from Rockstar.
In more new news, the headline on the Spanish language news channel is striking.
It reads: “Confession written in ink (for tattoos) – A tattoo on the neck that gave himself away, key to the conviction of a Leonida man”.
It appears to be a reference to the real-life Florida Joker.
Next: Nine 1 Nine.
What is it? Your guess is as good as ours, but we guess we’ll find out soon enough.
A plane is seen flying past with a slogan reading: “Why sixty-nine when you can Nine 1 Nine?”
Chances are it’s a strip club or a dating site.
One thing we do know: it’s not there for nothing.
Over on Vice Beach and two women are sitting beneath a branded parasol.
It reads: “Sol Sisters”.
An SPF brand? Ice creams? A beach club? We want to know.
Other brands include ‘Sessanta Nove’.
Italian for ‘sixty nine’, it first appeared in GTA IV and seems to be inspired by Louis Vuitton.
The Go Postal postal service is also back from GTA V.
The dual meaning of going on a rampage tracks.
Don’t worry, though, the ‘Collect Yourself’ slogan continues and tones down the pun.
Other mental-health schtick includes a billboard ad for Angstipan (an apparent parody of angina medicine Angispan).
It says it “cures emotions”.
The disclaimer reads: “Patients 18-65 should use with extreme caution. Sudden urge to blink could be life-threatening.”
“Call your doctor if your erection lasts more than 4 hours. Results may vary.”
One of the cars has stickers for ‘Vice Vinyl’ and ‘Rideout Customs’.
Maybe places to customize your GTA VI vehicle.
Ready for more nostalgia? The Cheetah is back.
After cropping up in every main game since GTA III, it feels like seeing an old friend.
In GTA III as well as Vice City and San Andreas, the car looked like a Ferrari Testarossa.
However, in GTA IV and GTA V it resembled a Ferrari Enzo.
Seems this time it’s harking back to a Testarossa-type model.
Moving on and a guy in a nightclub setting is wearing a ‘Dolls of Destruction’ T-shirt.
While the band doesn’t exist in real life and hasn’t been spotted in previous games, it could be a new fictional band (think Love Fist).
Among a montage of apparent social-media clips, there’s a shot of a guy struggling with an alligator.
A warning message flashes up from a company called ‘Poach’.
Standing for ‘Protection of Animals and Controlled Hunting’ – with an alligator later seen walking into a store, it seems it could be some sort of side mission.
It’s common knowledge that GTA VI will be set in Vice City.
However, Rockstar has confirmed that the state is called ‘Leonida’.
Since Vice City is inspired by Miami, it suggests the fictional state is based on Florida.
It’s a reference to Spanish explorer, Juan Ponce de León, who led the first European expedition to Florida in 1513.
The “only in Leonida” reference now makes a lot of sense.
To triangulate the game further, when Lucia is holding cash in the car, the money says “The United States of Paranoia”.
The number on the note: 04101998.
April 10, 1998 was the date the Good Friday Agreement was signed.
