While the GTA 6 release is still a while away, the rumor mill has been churning tirelessly about the much-anticipated next Grand Theft Auto title. Developer Rockstar Games has been as quiet as Krasinski about this game, so we don't have any official info on it yet. But... we still know quite a lot about the title, thanks to the historic GTA 6 leaks, where Rockstar got hacked big time.

Here's everything we know about the gameplay in GTA 6 by now. We will keep this article updated as soon as we find out more.

Insider "Strongly" Believes GTA 6 Reveal Coming In 2023

GTA 6: Everything We Know About The Gameplay

In the leaks we saw early, pre-alpha footage of GTA 6, showing off multiple different gameplay scenarios. In these videos, we saw a bunch of cool features that will be new to the Grand Theft Auto series.

You'll need a current-gen console to play GTA 6, so get an Xbox Series or a PS5 if you don't have on already!

Inspiration from RDR 2

It looks like several features that were unique to Rockstar's previous game, Red Dead Redemption 2, will make their way to GTA 6:

  • The dialogue system from RDR 2 will come back for GTA 6. In the footage from the leaks, you see the main characters talk to NPCs, using the familiar prompts "Greet", "Threaten" & "Rob".
  • Your character now carries rifles on their back, suggesting a RDR-like system, where you can only carry a limited number of weapons with you. You can also pick up and drop weapons.
    • This also goes hand-in-hand with a new weapon wheel, which looks similar to Red Dead and features consumables as well as equipable weapons.
  • References to riding have also been found. We haven't seen this in action yet, but it looks like you could get on a horse in GTA 6.
  • NPCs can now be tied up. You obviously won't be using a lasso though, but rather a ziptie.
  • References to possible RPG elements have also appeared, like hunger, leveling and animal taming.

Robberies in Vice City

In GTA 6, you will play as two characters, who seem to be called Lucia and Jason (at least in the pre-alpha footage, the names might be subject to change). They are supposed to be a Bonnie & Clyde-like pairing, who pull off one robbery after another in Vice City, GTA's fictional version of Miami. We were able to extract some interesting details from the footage about the robberies and the setting:

  • Robberies seem to be a key part of the game. Big story heists are presumably included again, in the leaked footage we saw a small-scale robbery in a restaurant.
  • Even these smaller robberies are full of details, like more realistic reactions by civilians and police, and look like they will feel very dynamic.
  • Interacting with NPCs and tying them up seems to be a big part of the robberies.
  • It looks like you will be able to rob shipping containers.

Rockstar's Unique Attention to Detail

As with any Rockstar game, GTA 6 will have a ridiculous level of detail. Some of that is already visible in the leaked material:

  • There are tons of references to detailed interiors, like motels, metro stations, restaurants and more. In the footage, we also saw a scene in a club, as well as a fast food joint being robbed.
  • Realistic clothing physics will be in the game.
  • The interiors of cars are even more detailed than they were in GTA 5, also allowing players to move around inside them.
  • Several videos showed off the damage modelling of cars and other vehicles, which looks to be much more granular than in prior games.
