GTA 6 will feature realistic car crashes

According to Rockstar Mag’s sources, the graphical gap will be much greater than in the developer’s previous projects and big improvements are underway, especially with regard to physics. The Grand Theft Auto series wouldn’t be the same without vehicles, and for GTA 6, Rockstar would have made many changes compared to GTA 5.

Many improvements have been made to vehicle physics thanks to a significant increase in the number of polygons compared to GTA 5. This will allow for more precise deformations and therefore, by extension, more realistic accidents.” says the report.

GTA 6 unveils a revolutionary weather system

GTA 6 would also feature big advances in water physics and lighting. Since the game takes place in a fictional version of Miami called Vice City, these improvements are crucial for realism. All these improvements result in a real weather system that will influence the game world by making driving more difficult in storms, among other things.

The gusts will damage the vegetation and create waves which will disrupt the peace and quiet of beach occupants. Rain and wind will impact your handling while traveling at high speed. Sunrises and sunsets will be more realistic than ever and nights more disturbing…” claims the report.

Interestingly enough, in 2021, a job posting from Rockstar suggested that GTA 6 would feature “large-scale destruction” and new weather systems. So it seems like all of this is now linked.

As for when players will get a chance to test out these new gameplay features, although Rockstar hasn’t even released a trailer for GTA 6 yet, comments from Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick hint that the game could be released as early as 2024.
