1/5 Based in Vice City - Rockstar Games has brought back Grand Theft Auto to Vice City, its own fictional take on Miami but not for the first time. Vice City was first introduced in 2002’s GTA: Vice City. GTA 6’s open world is set in the state of Leonida and will feature iconic locations from the previous game such as Vice Beaches, Kelly County, Hamlet, Port Gellhorn, and more.  (Rockstar Games)

2/5 Two playable characters - We now know that GTA 6 will feature two protagonists - Lucia, and an unnamed male character, which leaks say is named Jason. It would be the first time in the HD universe that the Grand Theft Auto series will get a playable female protagonist. While not many details were revealed, the two characters were shown committing multiple crimes, hinting at a possible Bonnie & Clyde relationship. (Rockstar Games)

3/5 New features - As seen in the GTA 6 trailer, the game will feature a vast range of vehicles. Apart from traditional vehicles such as cars, trucks, boats, planes, helicopters, bikes, jet skis, and yachts, GTA 6 might also feature quad bikes, biplanes, hover boats, amphibious trucks, monster trucks, and cruise ships. Car customization might also be heavily featured in the game, with possible street racing returning. Players might also be able to join up at car meets. GTA 6 will also feature three gangs, with two of them already being named. There are a lot of animals too, with crocodiles and dogs already seen in the trailer. And yes, GTA 6 will feature DJs.

Social media posts can be seen, with players potentially being able to record themselves and post the clips online for the world to see. Moreover, GTA 6 is also likely to feature real-time reporting of events, as footage of crimes committed by the protagonists was shown in the trailer. (Rockstar Games)

5/5 Release timeline, platforms - After years of waiting, we finally know the release timeline of GTA 6. Rockstar Games has announced that GTA 6 will be released in 2025, almost 12 years after the launch of GTA 5. The company has also revealed that it will be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S systems, meaning that PC players might have to wait before getting their hands on the next Grand Theft Auto game.

GTA 6 Launch Details: Remember GTA San Andreas, good old CJ, and how you could eat your way to being fat, or go to the gym to build muscle? Well, GTA fans could get the same in-game mechanic with GTA 6. This could be a major addition to the game and affect how you play with your characters—imagine Jason (the male protagonist) not being able to run or start a mission because he is excessively overweight after drinking beers and having fast food, or the opposite, with him being buff and landing knockout punches on enemies. This is the possibility we are talking about here.

Yes, Rockstar Games did away with it for GTA V, but based on the evidence and clues found in the GTA 6 trailer launched last year and a number of leaks, the dynamic body feature could be added to GTA 6 when it launches next year, in 2025. Here are all the details you need to know about this, and why it could be fun for players.

Leaks Point Towards the Presence of Gyms; Official Trailer Shows Men Running

GTA San Andreas had gyms, and now we could get them again with GTA 6. Based on a world events leak, there has been a mention of various gyms such as ‘MultiGym,' ‘Muscle Beach Gym,' ‘Sb21Gym1Gym,' and even wrestling rings. While this should be taken with a grain of salt, the possibility isn't out of the question as we have seen Rockstar execute this in the past.

This would also help players get off the main missions and explore the world in GTA 6. And of course, who doesn't like wrestling? This would be quite exciting for many players, we are sure of it. Also, while we are at it, imagine if going to the gym boosts your health stats or helps you perform better in missions for a higher rating—this would incentivise going to the gyms and other places even more—just like real life.

Also, you can't forget the fact that you can see a buff man running on the beach in the official Rockstar GTA 6 trailer. Now, if NPCs can do it, our bet is on the fact that you can do it too.

Jason and Lucia Look Different in Different Settings

Based on some leaked footage, Jason can be seen looking different in two different scenarios. In one scene, he is seen rather buff, with a broad back and visible musculature, while in one leaked clip where he is seen leaving a model, he is lean and barely has any muscle. Now, if these leaks are true, this would be another key piece of evidence pointing towards having a dynamic body mechanism element in GTA 6.

Having said that, it would certainly make for an interesting way to play the game, with things getting easier or more difficult based on your body. And you know what would be more fun? Actually taking some effort from the player's end—be it mini-games—to get your two playable characters fit.
