Ever since its inception in 1997, the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) game has made a niche for itself in the hearts of gamers from all over the world.
The latest version GTA 6 developed by Rockstar was initially expected to be slated for a 2018 release. However, according to a recent press release, gamers will have to wait a couple of years more from the planned date. The GTA 6 is expected to make its presence felt only as late as 2020. With very good chances of compatibility with all Sony and Microsoft gaming consoles, the display is also bound to be better than in the previous versions. Thus, you can play the game on the PlayStation 5 just as easily as Xbox Two from Microsoft. According to a Cinema Blend report, pre-production for the game has only begun and neither the settings nor the location for the game has been decided so far.
New Features that can be Expected in the GTA 6?
Although not many details have been revealed about what the new version of Grand Theft Auto has to offer, there are possibilities of a multitude of changes. Some of the reported newbies are a new map as per players’ expectations, a female central character, teleporting ability, Vice City and virtual integrity to add to the gaming experience. Making use of a female lead is going to create a breakthrough from Rockstar that has always given importance to masculine leads. It is also bound to increase the happiness of female lovers of the game. As for the map, the revised one will certainly be larger than the current Los Santos. It will also take up much more space than the earlier maps. Inclusion of virtual reality will render more fun when the game is played on a HD screen.
Additionally, though the locations and settings details are yet to be worked upon, rumors are being circulated about these parameters. With the anticipation of a foreign country likely to be the developer’s choice, gossips mention the prospects to be either Japan or the United Kingdom. Based on a Tech Radar report, the developer had earlier taken efforts to create Japan as the location setting in a game but had not been successful. Therefore, there are chances that Rockstar may try their luck at developing this once again. Enthusiastic players are eagerly hoping for the inclusion of Gang Wars in GTA 6.
One of the major drawbacks of the predecessor GTA 5 is said to be overcome in the yet to be released version. In GTA 5, only one option was available for a player to buy and own more than one apartment or house. In Version 6, this barrier has been removed and players will have different types of house and apartments options to buy. Needless to say, the challenges involved in buying them will be tougher just as the levels to cross will be tougher.
A Few Wishlist Features of GTA 6
Based on playing experiences from the earlier games, there are quite a few features in the wish list of gamers that they would like to see incorporated in the upcoming version of Grand Theft Auto. One of these is the craving for GTA 6 to incorporate a setting that reminds one of the 1970s. This wish was first mentioned in a Motoringcrunch report, after which it soon hit the headlines of various other reports. This is because the 1970s period is described as the ideal culture for the mafia and the corrupt government to operate. This will provide scope for more challenges.
Gamers are also hoping for a city that was not represented in any of the earlier versions. According to them, a new city is bound to increase the thrill of playing the game. Along with new cities, one thing that is definitely in the wish list is the hunger for more adventure by adding more characters with a slew of professions. Players would like to customize the central character of GTA 6 in many ways before commencing the game. This includes the ability to change the character’s standards looks, clothes and appearance. According to them, this customization feature will boost their spirits when they actually start the game. Players also want more interesting clothes to take their pick from.
Some gamers want the inclusion of more ways to earn money to get a live feel when they play the game. A couple of preferences are robbing a bank or a job in the police force or army. Talking about vehicles, players would like to have more huge vehicles of the 1950s and the 1960s to feature in the game. They would also love to make enhancements to existing vehicles by adding speakers, neon lights or other requirements as and when they are needed. Like vehicles, players are also wishing for the possibility to make changes to weapons at their will. A health system that was present in some earlier versions but removed later is yet another aspect that GTA players would like to see once again in the new version.
