Grand Theft Auto 6 ignites the imagination of players, who constantly try to outdo each other with new theories about the Rockstar Games game. Now we’ve got another set of rumors about features that will revolutionize not only the iconic gangster brand, but the entire industry.
Despite confirming work on the new GTA, commonly known as Grand Theft Auto 6, Rockstar Games has still not presented the project in a trailer or shared any information. Meanwhile, Rockstar Magazine revealed some new details about several elements available in the upcoming installment. The source states that some items remain at the development stage, so there is no guarantee that they will go into production or will not undergo any visible changes.
GTA 6 will reportedly provide significant improvements in game physics, a better time management system and a refined police system.
First of all, the difference between the graphics in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto 6 will be “greater” than in GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. Let us add that the title runs on Rockstar Games’ own engine, i.e. RAGE9. For this generation of the engine, developers are implementing real-time physical water simulation with better deformations and other improvements. Rendering quality (textures, lighting, volumetric clouds, etc.) will be much better.
There will also be a better time management system (morning, day, evening, night), thanks to which sunrises and sunsets will be “more realistic than ever” and nights will be “more disturbing” (whatever that means…). The game physics itself will be improved, not to mention the “revolutionary graphics”. In turn, NPCs and police should behave more intelligently.
Vehicles have seen a “significant increase” in the number of polygons in which more precise deformations are possible. Although the driving experience is said to be similar to that of Grand Theft Auto 5, the driving model itself is to be arcade. Physics-based rendering will be used in lighting, allowing for realistic textures.
For now, these are unofficial revelations, so as usual, you have to approach them with caution, hoping that Rockstar Games will finally stop playing cat and mouse with players and announce the long-awaited GTA 6.
